The Glass Workbench—a stained-glass and glass-making specialty store—began as a family-owned enterprise in 1975. Back then, owners Glen and Joanne Bishop chose an old-style building on South Main Street to create their shrine to the age-old art of glassmaking. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the building's 2-foot-thick Burlington limestone walls enclose the shop's inventory of supplies and books about glass arts. They also house mosaic stained-glass artworks by Julie Bishop Day, Glen and Joanne's daughter, who developed the stepping-stone technique for glass decoration. Local crafters take advantage of glassmaking workshops and admire the work of the staff's resident artisans, whose custom stained-glass pieces portray nature imagery and legendary moments in history such as when Ben Franklin invented Windex.

Di Olivas' founders travel throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East to sample the region's gourmet oils and vinegars, then bring the best ones back to the store's two Saint Louis–area locations, where patrons can draw up to 25 ounces of their favorite straight from the fusti. Each shop also stocks balsamic vinegars that have been aged for a minimum of 12 years, or a single viewing of Beverly Hills Chihuahua’s ambitious director’s cut. Di Olivas also carries more than 15 varieties of traditional and flavored gourmet coffees and keeps two dozen flavors of De Cio and Rossi Pasta on hand, including tomato sanoran spice, artichoke, and chocolate cabernet.
Since Winston’s Sewing Center began dispensing quilting and needlepoint supplies in 1939, there have been quite a few innovations in the craft. That’s especially true with sewing machines. The storefront has a sizeable collection of up-to-date models that have pinpoint accuracy and programmable embroidery. These modern devices sit amid the vast stock of traditional craft supplies, including yards of luxuriant fabrics for handcrafting projects. The center also serves as just a quiet, comfortable place to sew, whether you want to do that in as part of a class, in a sociable club, or within a yarn cocoon.
