Yarn Shop and More unspools a snuggly superabundance of fine yarns alongside an array of knitting and crocheting supplies, notions, books, and a lineup of technique-based classes. Embark on woolly adventures in tutorials such as Knitting 101—Knit and Purl or Knitting 102—Oops–Knitting Disaster, which teach the basics of casting on, knitting, purling, and repairing rookie mistakes with forgiving aplomb ($25 each). For hardy needle-wielders, private-session classes instill wisdom in realms such as the left-hand-focused Continental Knitting ($25) and Design Your Own Sweater ($30), where wool wearers can create their own pattern using Sweater Wizard software in place of an obsolete Rumpelstiltskin. Knitting students are required to bring their own supplies to all classes and may choose to cull them from the shop's well-stocked shelves of skeins that are arranged by color, weight, fiber, and zodiac sign.

Scooter World, the incarnation of Philip McCaleb's European-born love of two-wheeled freewheeling, peddles vintage and modern scooters and parts procured in-house from McCaleb's own manufacturing company, the Genuine Scooter Company. The Buddy 150 International barrels down streets at the behest of a 150cc four-stroke air-cooled engine, with automatic transmission and a Stebel air horn ideal for intimidating rival scooter gangs and passing jousters. Choose from models including the Pamplona, the Saint Tropez, and the Italia, which all come accompanied by a two-year warranty and a two-year roadside-assistance guarantee. The sturdy vessels' estimated 90 miles per gallon depends on variables such as road conditions, riders' weights, and tendencies to make revving noises with one's mouth while in line at the drive-thru.
In addition to a wide array of crafting supplies, Harper's Fabric & Quilt Company offers fun-filled classes that impart all manner of needlecraft fundamentals. Needle-and-thread beginners will work their way through a series of three classes before emerging triumphantly with a completed project in tow. An introductory sewing class spans 2.5 hours, during which the experienced seamstresses furnish students with the basics necessary to sew simple projects and quilts made of Microsoft stock on their own. After the introductory class, needle-wielding students can then sign up for a series of two project classes, unleashing their newfound chops on either a skirt or a tote bag. Spread out across several weeks, the classes are scheduled at various times on weekdays and weekends, allowing for plenty of between-class downtime for practice at home and so fingers can fully digest the delicious cornucopia of techniques.
