Waterhouse bath & kitchen studio began as a plumbing-fixture showroom in 1976 and has since expanded its collection to feature unique pieces including glass vessels, European designs, and stainless-steel furnishings from brands including Barclay and Victoria + Albert. Waterhouse’s products reflect a commitment to sustainability with hands-free faucets and lite toilets with 1-gallon flush options that can save up to 3,200 gallons of water per year. The showroom aims to create an immersive experience for customers by setting up model kitchens to demonstrate how a selection of showerheads or faucets will work in homes and doghouses.
Meig’s selection of on-trend clothes and accessories suits women of all ages who cultivate a young, carefree, modern-bohemian aesthetic. The store’s racks turn over frequently to reflect seasonal changes, but shoppers might find Wooden Ships knitted ruanas in bone white and emerald green, or breezy tie-dyed and print dresses from Gypsy 05. Designer denim by DL1961 flaunts daring prints that were featured in Vogue, and the store’s in-house cashmere line blends classic silhouettes with luxurious textures. The store’s selection of accessories sparkles and shines from inside vintage display cases or the nests of squatting magpies. Light-hearted accessories from Ornamental Things boast details such as gilded feathers and lightning bolts. Many of the accessories are culled from the staff’s international travels, such as fragrances from a small beachside perfumery in Mexico.
Helmed by a dedicated baker and mother of seven, 7 Little Cupcakes offers customers an impressive selection of gourmet cupcakes, custom cakes, and fun creations such as little cupcakes in a jar.

In addition to standard cupcakes, seldom-seen treats such as gooey cupcake dippers and adorable bite-size cupcake sandwiches also vie for customers’ affection. Made with high-quality ingredients, 7 Little Cupcake’s creations are available in gluten-free formulas.
Prism GlassWorks is a full-service silica studio offering a wide range of elegant pre-made glass pieces, as well as hands-on classes and workshops for students of all experience levels. As a sneak peak of their regular fused-glass pendant classes—and with Groupon fun-seekers specifically in mind—the Prism proprietors have put together a special fused pendant-making workshop (many convenient times are available). During the two-hour session, you'll get to carry your innermost designs and aesthetic impulses to fruition, whether they are abstract conglomerations of color or miniature images of a beloved filing cabinet. After hand-selecting and combining glass noodles, stringers, and dichroic thingamabobs, you'll have created a raw pendant that's ready for the finishing flames of the kiln.
For almost 60 years, family-owned Black Diamond, Inc. has plucked a bouquet of well-versed horticulturists to grow and tend its vast glassed-in fields of flowers, vegetables, trees, and shrubs. Having known many of Black Diamond, Inc.’s plants since their tender, botanic infancy, its greenery gurus pride themselves on being able to go beyond cursory recommendations to in-depth discussions of plants and how each interacts with fertilizers, soil, insecticides, and their ilk. Take home the recurrent colors of perennial flowers ($2.99–$11.99) such as the bloomerang—a repeat-blooming lilac that makes for better lawn fixtures than repeat-capsizing lilacs—or other low-maintenance, color-exuding favorites such as the knockout shrub rose or endless summer hydrangea. Annuals ($1.19–$29.99) provide summer-long flowerage with such pedal-wielders as the rocket mix snapdragon or shade-loving impatiens in accent watermelon. Vegetables ($0.89–$11.99) fill hunger voids and double as props during choreographed food fights in the form of roma tomatoes or black beauty eggplants, and shrubs ($9.99–$79.99) and a huge inventory of trees ($69.99–$299.99) serve up too-large-for-serving-platters of shade and yard ornamentation.
