Sit 'n Sleep's friendly staff of sleep consultants take slumber seriously, spending months to learn the ins and outs of sleep health, mattress selection, and customer service.

Guests can find restful vibes manifested in a bevy of mattress brands, from Sealy to Simmons, and types, from memory foam to latex.
The Light House's sizable show room brims with creative lighting designs and home décor, earning two nominations for Best Lighting Showroom in 2004 and 2007. Luminous lighting creations, such as the driftwood-finished candelabra chandelier ($349.99), bathes spaces in a glittering wash of elegance, and the bamboo-shade table lamp ($57.60) adds touches of tropical naturalism usually reserved for beach houses and Gilligan-governed islands to side tables or nightstands. The clean white ceiling fan ($73.90), meanwhile, sends cooling winds gushing through living interiors. The assemblage of outdoor lamps renders the stars an unnecessary frivolity, from the rustic copper gas lantern ($532.23) to the looming museum-black lamp ($138). A bounty of home accents, such as the multicolored ceramic mirror ($89), ensures inhabitants will have something aesthetically pleasing to gaze at should the reflections in the TV screen prove lackluster and clichéd.
My Little Flower Shop's owner, Gregory Goodman, draws on 35 years of botanical bouquet crafting to assemble fresh blossoms in classic, modern, or quirky arrangements. The rustic Fall Daisy basket ($34.99–$44.99) bursts with hand-designed yellow and bronze daisies like a vegetarian piñata. Celebrate harvest time with fall arrangements such as the Amber Waves bouquet, an amber-glass hurricane vase that drenches eyeballs with roses, lilies, solidasters, and yarrow with dried-wheat accents ($49.99), or the orange-and-yellow Harvest Moon Mugable, a reusable mug filled to overflowing with daisy poms ($29.99). Customers can opt for a whimsical Cupcake in Bloom arrangement complete with wax candle or a Birthday Mosaic bouquet ($54.99) to celebrate the birth of friends and family members while sending a grizzly reminder of mortality's fleetingness to disobedient houseplants.
Moms Country Orchard provides Oak Glen residents with a healthful harvest of locally grown, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables. Nestled amid the San Bernardino Mountains, the orchard specializes in hard to find heirloom varieties, all of which are grown without the use of commercial pesticides, fertilizers, or sacrificial brussels sprouts. Savor the seedy stuff with favorite apple varieties such as red delicious, gala, granny, and arkansas black. Apple varieties can be mixed and matched and purchased in one-quarter-peck bags ($8), half-peck bags ($10–$12), half-bushel boxes ($32–$38), or full–bushel boxes ($50–$60). Like the popularity of rhinestone jeggings, Moms' stock changes with the season, welcoming winter by stocking the shelves with in-season citrus such as oranges, grapefruits, and blood oranges (all $1–$2 per pound), and vegetables such as beets, carrots, and bunches of fresh greens ($2) can be found at various times throughout the year. Regardless of the time of year, all Moms’ produce is sustainably grown with an adherence to a strict natural preservation program to minimize harm to the planet and their customers.
