Wherever they go, the licensed and insured workers at Good Vibes Windows aim to show up promptly and leave a trail of sparkling homes in their wake. They clean windows inside and out and can also cleanse tracks, frames, and screens, saving homeowners the hassle of renting a giraffe to lick the highest sills clean.

Colombia native Patricia Estes demonstrates her artistic talent in each mani-pedi she performs for men, women, and children alike.

She painstakingly enhances fingernails and toenails with vibrant, highly detailed designs or miniature re-creations of Monet's Water Lilies. She works out of the 100-year-old National Avenue Cutting Company building with a group of stylists who also offer haircuts and other salon services.
