Run by green-thumbed Michelle Clark, Goose Hollow Gardens brightens moods with fresh-cut flowers and kaleidoscopically diverse plants, ideal for those seeking to decorate their abodes or bequeath their loved one. Send a blossoming floral arrangement ($50-$85) to a significant other or flower-allergic enemy, or pick-up a bulb-housing terrarium ($12+) as a mansion for refined monocle-wearing dandelions. Outdoor and indoor plants ($2.95+) rotate seasonally, gracing drab dwellings with energetic flora such as daffodils, cherry blossoms, peonies, and calla lilies available in the spring and summer, and deep autumnal shades of dahlias and zinnias available during the fall.
Benjamin Blak's fashion fanatics stock their colorful boutique with locally created, skin-hugging products for both men and women. Men's square-cut underwear impress pants pockets, fly zippers, and stylish x-ray machines alike with clever themes and sturdily constructed style ($35). The Rugby line splashes preppy sport motifs onto its shorts, and the Spirit of Ecstasy line prepares its gentlemen for pants-free emergencies with belt loops prepped to hold keys or the hooked thumbs of a cowboy surveying the land. Lady anatomies can snag inspiration from men's traditions with women's boxers ($20) or don Chinese flora with lacy bamboo panties, woven from the sturdy grass into sustainably alluring shapes ($15). Shoppers can observe the creation of locally-made clothing from brands like Benjamin Blak, Storm, and Pulse while at the in-store studio.
