Sam's Art & Framing preserves and stylishly showcases photos, prints, portraits, and memorabilia with expert care. Sam invokes more than 30 years framing experience to craft each frame by hand on the premises. Choose from thousands of molding and mat-board samples to enshrine a child's artwork or an overturned parking ticket. Framing options are virtually limitless, but as an example, about $70 can get you a 20"x24" frame with glass, backing and hanging hardware, and a basic diploma will run about $100.
“My style is soft, genuine, full of life, love and romance,” photographer Liliana Scherillo, owner of Liliana Photography, says of her work. Her portraits of children and adults, which sometimes incorporate whimsical coloring or playful costumes, have a theatrical flair and vibrant emotion. After photo sessions, customers can view their proofs online before ordering prints, selecting only the images that really summarize “determination” for personalized motivational posters.
Ski Stop proffers the latest in snow-slicing technology, with professional in-shop services and top-flight gear.

Newer skiers can count on Ski Stop's friendly, helpful service to pair them with appropriate equipment.
The experienced staff at Tullio’s Pottery Place creates a safe and respectful environment for potters of all levels of experience to learn. In the spacious studio, instructors guide students through throwing, painting, and firing their own masterworks. Ladies’ Night, Date Night, and Parents’ Night Off parties give grownups a creative outlet where they can bedeck premade pieces of pottery with stencils, their own designs, or re-creations of the bowl that Gene Hackman wore over his face for the entirety of The Poseidon Adventure. Pupils can get their hands dirty during 6- or 12-week personalized classes, with unlimited time provided during the week for them to finish work started in each session. Raku firings with a large selection of glazes are offered twice monthly.
