Founded by Ken Euston in 1971, Euston Hardware's old-fashioned legacy continues under the helm of Ken's son. Kevin, who has since grown the shops into three locations, keeps the shelves packed with more than 65,000 items for homes, landscaping, and automobiles. Experts chat with customers to help them to tackle projects from changing a car's oil to painting their house solid green so it can be replaced with a CGI castle. Home-improvement tools, which include items for the kitchen and bath, keep domiciles functioning at their best. The friendly staff can also guide green thumbs to lawn and garden supplies or help them select the right locks and outdoor equipment to keep their tools from escaping and impersonating the local robocop.
Window tinting is often associated with sleek, blacked-out rides that use tints for purely cosmetic reasons. However, many don't realize that window tinting carries safety and comfort benefits for passengers, and moreover, that it isn't reserved for automobiles alone. The staff at Mid America Window Tint rely on glass films from Sunscape and Huper Optik to help car and home owners realize a whole range of benefits, from blocking UV rays to resisting shatter to reducing glare from disco ball hood ornaments. Homeowners can even look for savings on their energy bills, since air conditioners don't have to work as hard to contend with the sun's rays.
Bagettes allows customers to personalize their bags by incorporating their own photos and text into the design. Constructed from satin fabric and featuring a black nylon lining, the medium cosmetic bag is 8" wide and 5" tall, giving it the volume to handle makeup, toiletries, and several hamsters. Images are embedded into the fibers of the bags rather than applied superficially to the surface, helping prevent fading and peeling over time and making the bags practical and durable ways to preserve special moments and broadcast hilarious personal slogans. Images—from endearing shots of family members and pets to psychedelic portraiture of famous flightless birds—are submitted using the Bagettes website and can be cropped, resized, and rotated to fit the customer's precise specifications. The site also allows for the addition of text to any image, with more than 200 fonts in which to write special messages, personalized captions, and high-level cryptography.
