Mark's Hallmark hosts unique gifts and Hallmark greeting cards that creatively accent any holiday or special occasion. In the absence of sufficient stashes of construction paper for homemade coupon books, offspring can bestow a Mommy & Me or Grandma & Me keepsake journal upon hard-working matriarchs, both of which include a recording feature where gifters can personalize a message with their own dulcet tones ($24.99 each). Decorative keepsakes such as the Willow Tree Angel of the Heart figurine gift set bequeath knick-knack lovers with a heavenly mantelpiece accent ($14.99), and a trio of candles from Yankee Candle Company greets Mother's Day with aromas of sun and sand, pineapple and cilantro, and lilac blossom ($19.99). New mothers can outfit fresh progeny in a Mud Pie baby outfit ($27.99+).
For over 75 years, Rogers Jewelers has lavishly exhibited a sparkling smorgasbord of fashion and bridal accoutrements. The professional staff guides customers to ensure informed purchases. Accessorize with a Diamond Key Pendant, a take on the old-fashioned skeleton key design ($59). Rogers provides free inspection and cleaning of jewelry, as well as a lifetime guarantee with each purchase of a diamond or promise to have children for the sole purpose of purchasing diamonds in the future. Rogers also donates to the American Red Cross and local school programs.
Harry and Brenda Roaden know their history, so they're more than familiar with the name Richard Hollingshead Jr. In the 1930s, Hollingshead invented drive-in theaters after a series of experiments that involved setting up faux theaters in his driveway. At 27 Drive-In, the Roadens honor his vision with two outdoor theater screens, which glow with first-run releases and classic clips of Darth Vader falling out of a taxi. They broadcast movies' audio tracks over local radio stations, ensuring that viewers aren't interrupted by outside noise. Customers won't be bothered by hunger, either, as the aromas of pizza, burgers, and ice cream drift from the concession stand.
At True Flight Indoor Archery’s 14 indoor lanes, archers nock their arrows and let them fly to the targets 20 yards away, unimpeded by the errant breezes and impatient arrowhead collectors that so often spoil perfectly aimed shots outdoors. Shorter 10- and 15-meter lanes level the field for newbies to hone their technique, and the staff—affiliated with the National Archery in the Schools Program—imparts basic skills during private lessons. The shop also sells equipment from brands such as Martin Archery, Lancaster Archery Supply, and Maple Leaf Press, outfitting avid shooters with bows designed for marksmanship, hunting, or launching spare sets of castle keys down from the bastion.
