In central New York, the artisans at Brennan Stained Glass Studio work with extreme heat and traditional techniques to craft elaborate stained-glass windows and art pieces. In addition to producing the stained-glass dome atop Alexandria Bay's Boldt Castle, the team has designed and installed windows for thousands of churches, temples, schools, hospitals, restaurants, and office buildings. The team also instructs students in the art of stained glass with its own unique approach. Lessons include basic instruction in the copper-foil method to create window panels and sun catchers. Students may also learn how to design their own custom fused-glass plates so they can stop arguing over dish ownership with their dogs.
Since its founding by William Bright Sr. and William Dunk Sr. in 1927, Dunk & Bright Furniture has grown from a modest storefront to a 100,000-square-foot showroom. The store's staff—accredited by the Interior Design Society and American Society of Interior Designers—leads visitors through a maze of bedroom and living room sets, mattresses, and other pieces by brands such as Ashley, Harden, and aspenhome. A separate 1,000,000-cubic-foot warehouse stores the bulk of the shop's inventory, which also includes wall-to-wall carpeting, area rugs, shutters and blinds, and enchanted mirrors. Dunk & Bright delivers purchases free of charge within 200 miles of Syracuse.
At The Dog Gone Inn Doggie Daycare, it’s not just the little things that count, such as cage-free boarding and the building's double doors, which prevent escapes. It's the big things, too. The Dog Gone Inn Doggie Daycare staff members are certified in animal first aid by the Red Cross, and climate-controlled animal areas offer webcams, which allow clients to check in on their pets. In addition, the daycare space is stocked with plush chairs, toys, and a TV broadcasting dog-related shows. Here, staff members look after pets during the day and offer extended hours so owners don’t have to leave work early. Overnight boarding, bathing and grooming packages, as well as doggy extras, such as massages, training, and personalized walks, are also available.
Laundry Moms delivers a weekly reprieve from the most infamous household chore by abducting dirty clothes and linens and promptly returning them washed, dried, and neatly folded. After designating a convenient pickup location and delivery time, Laundry Moms arrives on schedule, ready to whisk shirts, pants, and bed sheets to the land of detergents and cleansing carousels. Before folding clothes into neat piles of origami cranes, Laundry Moms either tumble dries them or, as one of several extra services, hangs them on a clothesline ($1/piece) to dry in the open air and properly display “Hang in There!” motivational T-shirts. The typical turnaround is 48 hours, but Laundry Moms offers expedited service for an additional fee ($10).
