The Limelite Boutique cherry-tops customers' outfits with a lineup of designer accessories centered on its collection of colorful handbags. Alongside the more traditional purses, the online shop equips clients with wallets for easy organization or beach bags that celebrate carefree vacation days with summery prints depicting rows of flip-flops, lawn chairs lounging on the sand, and parents forcing their children to work summer jobs at the local corn dog hutch. Necklace sets and rings adorn décolletages and fingers with elegant twists of silver or colorful arrangements of stones, and a lineup of sandals from Sierra and Oka b. clothe footparts in open-toed ensembles of decorated straps and wedge soles.
The staff at New Balance of Philadelphia & South Jersey isn't concerned with simply selling shoes—their mission is to pair customers with the footwear that will carry them comfortably through life’s arduous steps. Understanding that an ill-fitting pair of athletic shoes can cause pain to joints and potentially damage knees, hips, and the back, associates measure the length and width of each client's foot and conduct a gait analysis to chart the trajectory of their stride when walking normally or running through ball pits. The data are collected to help the staff match clients with their ideal shoe, keeping them running longer and looking good while doing so.
Paint Your Masterpiece nudges creativity so it emerges from its slumber and stretches its arms across a wide selection of unfinished ceramic bisque pieces, including picture frames ($30), cereal-size bowls ($18), and coffee mugs ($18). Budding artists can choose from more than 50 available colored glazes before splattering creative juices all over tiles ($10.50) and birthday plates ($20). Completed pieces are dipped in a clear glaze, fired in the studio’s kilns, and then placed on the studio’s test mantle to make sure they are display-worthy. For inspiration, tap into the dreamscapes of the subconscious or seek the assistance of the creative staff of ceramicists. To help bring artistic visions to life, pot painters are also invited to tinker with available aids such as books, stamps, and stencils. All the necessary tools are available for use on-site, and customers may pick up their masterpieces after approximately seven days.
