Mattress Direct culls a variety of mattresses in textures ranging from firm to plush from brands such as Tempur-Pedic and Serta. Serta's iComfort, for example, evenly distributes support across the body with microsupport gel capsules nestled in its memory foam; a specialized material prevents overheating and the resulting unpleasant lava-chase nightmares. Mattress Direct's stock of bed frames, bed linens, and pillows allow patrons to assemble complete bedroom sets in one trip, and an express delivery service prevents the hassle of renting a moving truck or outfitting each leg of a new bed with a rollerblade.
Lakeland Yard and Garden boasts more than 30 years of botanical know-how, maintaining plants, fountains, garden accessories, and soil on its 17-acre spread of agricultural amusement. Knowledgeable green gurus can assist patrons in finding their ideal plant pals, perusing a selection of rose plants one might secretly plant in a loved one's pillow ($13.99+). Habitat dwellers can breeze through the selection of hanging ferns to fill baskets and insert green into the colorless air ($19.99+). Thumbs turn green in the presence of topsoil, mulch, trees, and sand, imported from prestigious growers across the country. The horticultural amassment extends beyond plants, blooming with decorative patio accessories, clay pottery, and birdbaths, which can be used to lure the neighborhood’s elusive rainbow-afro-haired finch.
The craftsmen at both Image Gallery Frame Shops pour more than 20 years of experience into each piece as they crown artwork, family photos, and precious mementos with traditional and eco-friendly mouldings. They combine these frames—many of which are harvested from managed and sustainable forests—with acid-free archival mats and conservation-quality glass to ensure memories withstand the test of time. Upon request, they can also use nonreflective museum glass to keep portraits from being startled by their own reflections.
In addition to custom framing, artisans stretch canvases, display three-dimensional objects in shadow boxes, and repair broken frames. When they aren't working in the shop, framers travel to customers' homes to assist with design needs and custom mirrors. For those with bare walls, an online gallery provides access to more than 3,300 images, which can be printed on paper or canvas and shipped for free to either shop for framing.
Part greenhouse and part craft shop, Fads & Frames stocks an abundance of supplies for DIY home decorating, gardening, and landscaping. The shop’s crafty staff fills shelves with bright ribbons, picture frames, and bins of silk flowers that attract groovy, disco-era bumblebees. A wide candle selection scents the store’s air with aromatic fruits, flowers, and spices. In the spring, a garden center blooms with annuals such as begonias, impatiens, and vinca, as well as Kimberly Queen porch ferns and Knock Out roses. While browsing blossoms, shoppers can also peruse a selection of French-inspired and rustic outdoor furniture.
