Whatever heirlooms, possessions, or cryogenically frozen pies you store at 7th Street & Dunlap Self Storage, all will be protected by a security system that includes 56 cameras and motion detectors. This storage facility takes security seriously, as it does convenience—the aisles are wide and brightly lit, the storage units are air-conditioned for preservation sake, and the facility accommodates FedEx and UPS receiving. Units range from 5'x5' to 10'x20' and come with a recommendation of what can fit inside, such as 170 standard file boxes, desks, and chairs. Month-by-month leases are offered for those with commitment issues, while people who are in it for the long run are rewarded with discounts and love poems.
Bead Bar's bead baristas guide jewelry crafters with a wealth of bauble knowledge, provisioning projects from the amply stocked store. Students can bring their own spirited refreshments to make sessions merrier, journeying past bead-bedazzled walls and cascades of clasps to reach the workshop, where they'll discover the basics of jewelry creation during basic stringing and crimping classes (click here to view the schedule). After pupils choose one of five bracelet kits—which include a clasp, four fire-ball beads, finishing beads, wire, wire guards, and a strand of firepolish beads—instructors model foundational stringing techniques and imbue new crafters with a sense of symmetry and color combinations. Bracelet makers learn how to highlight feature beads and artfully select accent beads, then take an oath to use filler beads only for fighting crimes of bare-wristedness. To bring closure to both classes and adornments, the staff imparts advice on selecting clasps to make sure bracelets can't leave wrists or ankles without asking permission first.
For anyone nostalgic for days gone by or looking for that perfect bygone present for a loved one, it’s Qcumberz to the rescue. The appropriately green-painted store in central Phoenix stocks a dizzying array of covetable items, plus downright weird discoveries scored primarily from the 50s and 60s, though some modern day oddities can be found as well. Many items you might find are practical, like a bargain price step stool, 1960s lamps and retro dishware, while others are decidedly decorative, such as antique license plates or an early 50's Coca Cola vending machine door. Some fall on a spectrum in between, like a 1920s bathtub. In keeping with the green movement, there’s also a newly opened salvage room and courtyard brimming with old window frames, wheelbarrows and antique doors.
