Laura Paul Gallery is a boutique with two driving ambitions: to beautify abodes and to make special occasions special. Amplify your home’s aesthetics with original artwork or framing and interior-design services, or make housewarmings, weddings, or baby showers memorable and carefree with gifts or event-planning and personal-shopping services. Personalize any item, from overnight bags and cheeseboards to wax-molded wings, or pick up uniformly beloved gifts such as children’s toys and candles. Laura Paul herself may be on hand to help any befuddled buyer navigate the land of endless options as she applies her personal-shopping expertise to tricky gifting circumstances, such as what to get the clown who has every clown thing except a clown car big enough for 141 clowns.

Blackberry tart. Banana-nut bread. Cinnamon-twist danish. They’re not decadent treats in a glass display case at the local bakery, but intoxicating aromas and robust flavors found at La Crema Coffee Company. Owned by Melissa and Dan Flohn, La Crema takes 100% Colombian coffee beans and transforms them into three dozen unique breakfast, afternoon, and dessert flavors such as chocolate raspberry, amaretto truffle, and bananas foster. For purists, the company imports unflavored blends from Central and South America, Indonesia, and Africa. It even vends a selection of non-coffee beverages, as well as hand-beaded coffee scoops and accessories for measuring coffee grounds or spooning them over breakfast cereal.
