European friends Pernilla Frazier and Line Daems founded Kreatelier in 2007. Since then, solid local press has helped bring crafters from around the area into the shop. Its quaint quarters feature a diverse collection of product designs including bags, quilts, reusable gift wraps, and various accessories, all enhanced by crafty workshops that educate interested art architects. Rampant pencil collections can be put to rest with large cotton pencil cases ($18), which are washable, rollable, and feature 11 pockets, while manicure and pedicure cases ($15) help keep tools and other grooming paraphernalia from escaping. Keep rebellious flocks of hair at bay with a brightly colored headband ($8), elegantly wrap bottles of precious fermented fruits inside wine bags ($10), or organize a messy back seat with the car-seat organizer ($40), which withstands abuse and the effects of time travel.
Mosquito Squad of Rhode Island's trusty technicians will assess a backyard or front yard before applying a defensive shield with the barrier spray. This process uses fogging machines to spray an insecticide—a nontoxic product registered with the Environmental Protection Agency—that immediately deters and kills adult mosquitoes and ticks that enter the yard. Around 30 minutes after the treatment is sprayed, humans and pets can safely return to the yard without fearing insect-spread diseases such as West Nile virus, equine encephalitis, Lyme disease, and goo-hands. The treatment typically lasts around 21 days.
The certified and skilled staff at LUX Spa invites visitors to pamper themselves with a range of aesthetic and therapeutic massage services. Within purple-hued walls, an attentive staff revives hands, feet, and faces through indulgent mani/pedis and rejuvenating facials, which detoxify, reduce fluid build-up, exfoliate, and relieve stress. Those seeking similar stress relief in their muscles can enlist an attentive massage therapist to unfurl tension by employing a range of techniques. Each session of massage therapy increases blood and lymph flow while facilitating removal of metabolic wastes resulting from either exercise or inactivity.
