For almost 60 years, family-owned Black Diamond, Inc. has plucked a bouquet of well-versed horticulturists to grow and tend its vast glassed-in fields of flowers, vegetables, trees, and shrubs. Having known many of Black Diamond, Inc.’s plants since their tender, botanic infancy, its greenery gurus pride themselves on being able to go beyond cursory recommendations to in-depth discussions of plants and how each interacts with fertilizers, soil, insecticides, and their ilk. Take home the recurrent colors of perennial flowers ($2.99–$11.99) such as the bloomerang—a repeat-blooming lilac that makes for better lawn fixtures than repeat-capsizing lilacs—or other low-maintenance, color-exuding favorites such as the knockout shrub rose or endless summer hydrangea. Annuals ($1.19–$29.99) provide summer-long flowerage with such pedal-wielders as the rocket mix snapdragon or shade-loving impatiens in accent watermelon. Vegetables ($0.89–$11.99) fill hunger voids and double as props during choreographed food fights in the form of roma tomatoes or black beauty eggplants, and shrubs ($9.99–$79.99) and a huge inventory of trees ($69.99–$299.99) serve up too-large-for-serving-platters of shade and yard ornamentation.

Costume Holiday House's inventory of wigs, makeup, suits, and party supplies enables costume changes ranging from spooky to comical. Customers can dress themselves as everything from pop-culture icons to terrifying specters and macabre forms, and an ample supply of wigs and accessories form the basis of inventive costumes that don’t require full-body suits or rubber masks. In addition to wearable Halloween goods, the shop also sells fog machines and animated props that set the stage for monster mashes and haunted houses. Costume Holiday House accommodates dress-up even in the Halloween off-season, with theater costume rentals for schools and community plays, or Second Skin colored bodysuits for showing team spirit at a baseball game or camouflaging into the green-screen background at local commercial shoots.

Elaine Terman loves tea. Dubbed The Tea Lady for her extensive knowledge of steeping brews, Elaine draws on a tea-master certification and a background in medical technology when crafting her Wild Orchid brand of 150 distinct loose-leaf teas. Inside Elaine’s Tea Shoppe, amid shelves stocked with tea accessories and local honey, patrons dine on French-press tea and made-from-scratch scones. Teas are served with real Devonshire cream from England scooped with metal spoons crafted from the upturned pinkies of British robots. Elaine’s passion for herbs extends to a diverse inventory of wellness items, such as aromatherapy candles, oils, and medicinal herbs. When she’s not sharing her knowledge at speaking engagements or agreeing to disagree with cups of coffee, she’s teaching tea classes and publishing books on her tea-centric adventures.
