The staffers at Hands on Pottery Studio appreciate that many artists need an inspirational push—especially in the face of more than 150 paintable objects. That's why they've installed a design center, where guests can peruse books, trace stencils, or print patterns from a computer to inform their opus ideas. They allow painters unlimited access to their wall of paints, and mosaic-makers can pick through a trove of marbles, glass, and tile fragments. Constantly striving to nurture creativity, they stroll past tables of guests at work and remain attentive to questions or requests. They don't believe in obstructing the process by charging by the hour or the final number of paint splatters on the guests' clothing. Instead, they encompass all equipment and studio time within a single price for paint-your-own appointments, freeing artists to craft elaborate home-decor pieces or personalized gifts fit for weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries.
Their vision of communal artistry stretches beyond these sessions, however. They host mobile and onsite parties, workshops, and summer camps, which teach children to exceed the output of every great film director by crafting five projects in five days. With a retail stock of customizable gifts, they also display their own painting prowess to commemorate cherished events.
The staff at Heavenly Healing Hands Massage Therapy strive to deliver the most pampering massage possible, corralling comforting indulgences such as soft-topped, heated massage tables or a warmed neck roll. The décor of this one-room oasis located in Beachwood is inspired by Georgia's picturesque Tybee Island, with sky-blue walls and sand-colored curtains that call to mind the relaxing seascape. Beside bowls overflowing with colorful seashells lie smooth stones that massage therapists often heats and incorporates into treatments to help loosen tension or keep suddenly stress-less bodies from floating away.
Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
Since 1950, Gale’s Garden Center has spruced up local gardens with a variety of greenery, garden tools, and lawn décor. Every spring, their nursery overflows with locally grown yellow forsythia shrubs and pale pink weeping cherry trees. After entering, you can find helpful staff members scattered among the hydrangeas and fruit trees; they're ready to answer any questions about spring gardening for cool-weather plants. The store strives to stay up to date with the latest gardening wares. Organic lawn-care products keep lawns lush without using harsh toxins, and native plants become low-maintenance housing for birds, butterflies, and migratory lawn gnomes.
When Seymour and Esther Fischgrund founded Fish Furniture in 1925, the couple personally stained, painted, and housebroke each piece before sending it home with a customer. Today, Fish Furniture operates a bit more efficiently, but with the same attention to detail and quality. In the eight-plus decades since opening, the business has grown from 2 employees to 70. It features a pair of 40,000-square-foot show rooms, inside of which sit upholstery, bedroom sets, and office trimmings bearing solid-wood construction and the names of well-known manufacturers. Outside the show rooms, Fish's staff travels to homes to provide interior-design advice, and its courtesy touchups mend scuffs and scrapes in a more fashionable manner than haphazardly placed band-aids.
