When Crystal Pollard was looking for maternity and baby clothes, she found plenty of onesies but a dearth of stylish skirts or flowing evening dresses. With the help of her husband Brad, a carpenter, the couple outfitted their garage with a changing room and chandelier and created Bellies to Babies. Stocked with the best of Crystal’s garage sale finds, the shop specialized in not only gently used baby clothes but stylish maternity duds for Mom.
Today, in a storefront rather than a garage, customers weave through racks of colorful, stylish, and pint-sized clothes for toddlers as well as soft, frilly sweaters and workout gear. The shop also specializes in dress rental for special occasions, offering over 100 pieces including floor-length, summer, and cocktail dresses.

Many of their shoes and handbags hail from designer brands such as Gucci and Chanel, and their policy prohibits anything that's not from a designer, better department, or specialty story.

Since opening 40 years ago, each of the trees at B&J Trees has been planted, grown, and harvested on-site. Today, it's two resident arborists who nurture a slew of different tree breeds throughout the seasons. In the nursery, visitors will find more than 1,500 "balled and burlap" trees?whose trunks have been wrapped in burlap, and roots have been carefully nestled into a protective covering?including spruce, white pine, and balsam fir. During the summer months, full lines of landscape-ready trees line the walls. Come Christmas, they supply locals with lush, fragrant trees, including fraser fir, balsam fir, canaan fir, and pine. The folks at B&J encourage their patrons to bring along the whole family to enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides, popcorn, cups of hot cocoa, a Santa Claus impersonator, and?at some sites?chainsaw carvings.
