Propane Genie replenishes propane provisions by delivering freshly topped-off tanks. Gas-grillers schedule deliveries by visiting the company’s website, where a prompt asks them to enter their zip code and pledge their allegiance to coal-less cooking. Overanxious tanks are then placed on doorsteps or given a mild sedative while they wait to be replaced by a tamer tank. Propane Genie fills all of its tanks to capacity, ensuring fulfilling grilling sessions and preventing bun-only barbecues. For an additional fee, full tank deliveries are also available to customers without a tank to exchange.
In 2009, Melissa Garnier opened a small produce co-op, seeking to save money on her grocery bill while providing her five children with healthy, fresh fruits and vegetables. Today, that co-op has grown into The Neighborhood Garden, a company that regularly supplies 200 Jacksonville families with fresh meats, local honey, dairy goods, and certified organic produce from Albert's Organics in Sarasota. Patrons can pick up pre-ordered edibles from 17 locations, or opt for delivery service.
In addition to carrying a line of its own carefully handcrafted soaps and other products, The Ponte Vedra Soap Shoppe provides high-quality supplies for soap makers and aromatherapists who want to create their own face scrubbers at home. With today’s deal, smart saponifiers can cook up a batch of 20 to 24 soap bars using Ponte Vedra’s Melt and Pour Glycerin Soap Kit ($39). Unlike the synthetic detergent concoctions of many commercial soap bars, this soap contains moisture-attracting glycerin, natural vegetable oils, and fine fragrances that combine to create a smooth, soft lather machine. The kid-friendly kit comes with 4 pounds of glycerin soap base (half white and half clear), molds, water-based liquid soap colorants (1 ounce each of red, blue, and gold-bar-impersonating yellow), instructions, and 2 ounces of your choice from nearly 100 fragrance-oil options, including almond, cinnamon, bananaroma, sweet grass, and more.
A'propos carries trendsetting textiles for customers to peruse and try on for size, including blouses, handbags, designer jeans, and dresses. Designer handbags, such as the red suede clutch ($79), accentuate ensembles with functionality, and wardrobe staples such as Linq fuchsia thermal cardigan ($68) offer practical comfort that pairs with a variety of styles. Miss Me jeans embellish back pockets with rhinestones and buttons ($98), and leg-shirts by Makers of True Originals grace backsides with unique stitching designs ($89). Shoes ($42+) and accessories also accentuate outfits with subtle additions such as expandable bangles ($142) that double as dysfunctional slinkies.
