Sun pours past window planters full of flowers, rippling across the handcrafted bowls and vases that line The Broken Mold?s canary-hued walls. Shelves and tables groan beneath an array of watercolors, acrylics, and oils. Artists seeking a workspace away from the narcissistic bowls of fruit that fill most homes practice their craft in The Broken Mold?s studios, and pupils of all levels build their skills by enrolling in lessons or by observing skilled studio potters. The Broken Mold sells and showcases the work of local artists with events throughout the year.

The chocolatiers at Anthony's Chocolate Dipped Fruit combine the juicy sweetness of fresh fruit with the silky richness of chocolate. Confectioners submerge berries, cherries, pineapple, and other fruits into white or milk chocolate, and upgrade classic caramel apples by dipping the treats in chocolate and walnuts or nuggets of solid gold. Customizable gift baskets come loaded with seasonal fresh fruits, chocolate-dipped fruits, and savory goods such as Gouda cheese, crackers, and mixed nuts. Anthony's also offers themed gift boxes for special occasions such as birthdays, baby showers, and British bank holidays.
