When Tracy and Derek opened Zippity Zoom Toys in 2009, they pinky swore never to sell "junk." The child-savvy couple hand selects each toy that gets shelved at their store, exercising a special fondness toward classic toys that never become passé with kids. Open seven days a week, Derek and Tracy believe that in an age of smartphones and other high-tech "adult playthings," a trip to the toy store should also delight grownups, since encountering a timeless toy can transport them back to childhood without pedaling a Big Wheel fast enough to open a time portal.
The Gallery/art placement inc is locally owned artist's emporium offering custom framing and a myriad of art supplies. The custom framing preservation standards promise to enhance unadorned artwork while complementing existing décor and underappreciated middle children. Moulding selections range from classic gold-leaf to hand-finished natural woods, 100% cotton matting dictates the space between the frame and the artwork, and glazing serves as a barrier between the art and external elements. Metal frames for an 8 x 10 photo or artwork, including acid free backing and True Vue glass, can be had for about $80, while a pre-stretched 8 x 10 canvas can be personally framed to an artist’s specifications for between $58 to $123. Professional artists, hobbyists, and non-artists alike rely on The Gallery/art placement inc's expansive selection of more than 10,000 art supply items and knowledgeable artistic staff to help bring their artistic vision to life.
