The Bull Market’s owners Paul Savage and Clint Oliver have nearly 50 years of meat experience between them, which they draw upon as they meticulously curate cuts of pork, veal, lamb, poultry, and beef. Before hand trimming each steak the meat connoisseurs age it under regulated temperatures and conditions for a minimum of 21 days, ensuring optimal tenderness and taste. Unlike traditional grocery store beef cuts, the market’s Angus beef must meet quality and marbling standards so rigorous that only 12% of the country’s beef qualifies to stock their premium Angus steak. Similarly high standards govern the shop’s dry-aged beef and USDA prime beef, as well as its other meats, to ensure patrons never encounter excess gristle or meat-wrapped softball tees masquerading as T-bone steaks.
Kid to Kid is an upscale children's and maternity resale store that buys clothing, toys, furnishings, and baby gear before selling it back at affordable prices. Before making the cut, all clothes and shoes must be deemed certifiably elite in stylishness, cleanliness, and newishness.

Parents can decorate the hair off young ones with fashionable bows ($2.99+) or cloak growing kids in discount clothing ($5.50), such as coats, gloves, hats, socks, and a varied array of shoes. Shoppers can find brands such as Gap and Gymboree, and moms-to-be can find fashions for themselves and their baking buns. Kid to Kid also styles nurseries with rockers, crib linens, and dressers. Each piece of equipment and each toy is squeaky-clean and well-mannered, always poised for an invite to the most exclusive teddy-bear picnics.
