Since 1948, Roxborough residents have been heading to Stanley’s Hardware for their household needs, or the perfect DIY solution to a small, nagging apartment problem. The impressively stocked store moved to Ridge Avenue in 1961, and has been supplying the neighborhood with nails, screws, fixtures, fittings, tape and everything in between for more than a generation since. After a much-needed expansion, Stanley’s now runs out of a bright, welcoming, even more thoroughly stocked building on the same lot, where the dedicated team working inside sells an array of indoor and outdoor plants, consult on paint options and rent a range of equipment for bigger jobs. It’s nice to know that there’s still a corner hardware store to pick through for the perfect solution; even if you need a jackhammer, some patio furniture or some party supplies.
Jardin Medical Spa springs several spa services on Philadelphia's faces, but only two have been set aside for Groupon users. The chemical peel efficiently and effectively treats skin that's been damaged by the harsh winter sun, unevenly pigmented, unfairly wrinkled, or unwisely replaced with a hologram. The spa's sugarcane-based glycolic peel improves texture and tone, adding a healthier look to faces while helping reduce future aging agitators such as age spots or faded pigmentation. At 15 minutes, the chemical peel is also one of the fastest cosmetic procedures available, topped only by a goblet of vitriol tossed in the face by a spiteful Victorian mistress.

The idea, really, is genius: edible fruits, chocolates and other snacks, tastefully arranged as bouquets, to be given out to coworkers, ordered for friends or handed to a special loved one. The Roxborough outpost of this national chain seeks to pair up customers with the arrangement of their dreams, often going well beyond the usual anniversaries and milestones to reach for a more personalized finish. Funkier options might include balloons and a stuffed bear; squeal-worthy pineapple cutouts of the wide-eyed Hello Kitty; or apple Fruit Truffles: Granny Smith apple pieces dipped in semisweet chocolate and dripped with toppings like cinnamon chocolate or white drizzle. Call ahead to choose your arrangement and have it delivered, or swing by the small shop to pick something up before any big occasion.
A cute and eclectic gift boutique on Main Street in Manayunk, The Little Apple stocks new, vintage and repurposed cards, jewelry and housewares that can’t be found anywhere else.

Quirky gifts for infants and pets inhabit the back room.
