  • Air Lollipops
    With just one look at Air Lollipops’ balloon centerpieces, it’s easy to see how the business got its name. Anchored by curled ribbons, Mylar and latex balloons emblazoned with well wishes and colorful shapes enliven parties, bringing joy to the celebrated and their guests like oversized all-day suckers. From single strands to 50-foot arches, the arranged balloons add an element of whimsy to school dances, baby showers, and hearings about changes to the municipal tax code.

  • Burlingame Optical
    Strolling into Burlingame Optical is more like the encountering the lobby of a five-star hotel than an eyewear shop. Yet, sure enough, frames by Chanel, Robert Marc, and Chrome Hearts—amid a sea of other designers—fill the shop’s elegant cherry cabinets just waiting to be tested. Eyewear specialists pace the marbled floor, guiding the nearsighted and farsighted to the perfect lenses, from single-vision to digital progressives. At an onsite lab, technicians perform finish grindings and fortify spectacles with anti-reflective coatings and miniature wiper blades.

  • Body Shop
    To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.? Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
