Despite the fact that the average American woman is a size 14, finding fashionable plus-size clothes can be a chore. That's why Vikki Stoddart decided to help plus-size women find affordable clothes with her shop, Hips Resale Boutique. Designed for women from size 12 to 32, the shop carries in-season items that have been gently used, allowing shoppers to empty their closets of clothes that aren't being worm and refill them with new, colorful apparel. They keep a stock of in-style dresses, cardigans, and skirts paired with accessories such as towering, strappy heels and sun hats that protect against bird pranks. When ladies want to switch things up again, they can resell clothes back to the shop, allowing other women to enjoy their outfits.

An eclectic inventory of celebratory combustibles lines the shelves inside each of Pro Fireworks' 10 Michigan storefronts. Each store appeals to clients' inner pyrotechnic with everything from fire fountains to artillery shells that launch into the clouds and bloom into fiery flowers, thundering like the rattling sabers of a thousand George Washingtons. The explosives emporium also hosts kid-friendly novelties, such as sparklers, snappers, and poppers.
Frank Mancuso Sr. opened the original Mancuso's Florist in Detroit in 1923 and even kept the doors open on Sundays—a rarity at the time—in order to provide the citizens with the perfect arrangement any time they needed a gift or to dress up their homes. Since its launch close to 90 years ago, the store has opened and operated every single day of its existence. They've never stopped prioritizing customer service, accommodating special requests that include creating personalized baskets for memorable occasions and delivering arrangements early in the morning, before sweethearts crawl out of their cocoons.
The family's three generations of hard work have paid off. Mancuso’s Florist won Best Flowers in a 2012 poll of CityVoters, and readers of St. Clair Shores Patch named it Best Florist in 2012. In addition to providing breathtaking flowers and plants, the knowledgeable crew can recommend thoughtful gifts and novelties. Seasonal "epic roses"—which stand more than 5 feet tall and grow between two volcanoes in Ecuador—were featured on Fox 2 News and are ideal for expressing affection to an NBA player.
