Sprawled across 40 acres of coastal foothills flanked by majestic redwood trees, Yerba Buena Nursery’s prismatic fields brim with more than 600 species of flora native to California. Plants such as ferns, perennials, shrubs, and grasses dapple both the alfresco landscape and multiple greenhouses sprinkled throughout the grounds. Elsewhere on the lush acreage, mature plant specimens and natural wildlife line the paths crisscrossing a 2.5-acre demonstration garden, and an idyllic farmhouse dating back to 1905 shelters visitors for classes, events, and traditional tea services. The resident staff of gardening enthusiasts curates a seasonal stash of greenery for sale and can help to enhance patrons’ own yards or ant farms with astute, on-location garden consultations.

Harnessing his well-trained eye, owner and artist Jeff Hernandez crafts custom art dwellings in his combination gallery and framing center. Whether working with a photograph, prestigious diploma, or painting of a prestigious diploma, his team of framing specialists can pair customers' items with just the right materials, colors, and design styles. A basic 16"x20" frame starts at about $150, though prices vary depending on materials used. To keep keepsakes protected against the elements, customers may opt for acid-free materials and UV glass ($180 for a 16"x20" frame) or museum-quality wares ($230 for a 16"x20" frame) with crystal-clear glass that is impervious to glare and pretentious commentary.

In 2001, Carrie Rezabek Dorr’s only venue for her Pure Barre workouts—a blend of dance, Pilates, and strengthening stretches—was the basement of an office building. Crowds drawn by Carrie's choreographing expertise and the infectious music of her routines necessitated expansion, however, and Pure Barre soon spread its franchises across the country, spurred by mentions in Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Health magazines.

Pure Barre guides students through precise isometric movements that craft lean, not bulky, muscles. By flowing through scalable maneuvers that balance limbs against a ballet barre, participants can lift and tighten traditional problem areas such as the thighs, abs, seat, and arms. The workout is accessible to all fitness levels, and can help new mothers get back in shape. Intimate classes with a limit of 15 attendees ensure personalized adjustments and tips, allowing each guest to get the most from the workout's alternating strength and stretch drills.

The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear.

But what many don't know about the brand?despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase?is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment.

Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.

For Books Inc., it's been a long road, and if you trace the lines back to its origins, it's California's oldest bookstore. After striking gold?literally?back in 1851, Anton Roman set up shop as a bookseller. Although the shop moved, was sold, burned down, changed hands again, and was rebuilt, the spirit remained intact, and today, multiple locations of the indie bookstore have sprouted up across The Golden State. Staff members keep the shelves lined with classic and contemporary tomes in all genres, and a myriad of book clubs help keep the love of literature alive. They also run a vibrant event program featuring author events and readings where patrons can enjoy an experience they can't download.

Every day, San Francisco Soup Company?s chefs craft crunchy salads and approximately 12 soups from scratch, keeping an eye on sustainability and seasonality. Both salads and soups showcase organic and locally sourced ingredients such as cage-free eggs from Glaum Egg Ranch and organic milk from Clover Stornetta, and soups cast tendrils of steam from biodegradable containers. San Francisco Soup Company?s commitment to conscious dining extends to the nutritional realms: each recipe comes with nutrition stats, and the menu even designates which soups are gluten-, meat- and dairy-free, and which soup spoons best shield noses from affectionate pinches.
