Nestled in historic downtown Trussville, The Spotted Zebra's cheerful pink sign invites pedestrians to meander through aisles of eclectic gifts and accessories. El Deano insulated tote bags gleam with green paisley and blue wave patterns, and T-shirts for children and adults bear heartwarming adages and cute designs. A kaleidoscope of jewelry pairs with patterned sunglasses and houndstooth watches, and monograms customize cups, towels, and wall décor. Throughout the year, a metamorphosing stock of seasonal décor and gifts also prepares shoppers for Christmas, Halloween, and Calendar Awareness Day.
With its experience in producing digital content for television and video, the team at Cam Video Productions also specializes in transposing outmoded analog formats into resilient data. 8mm film, video tapes, and slides are vulnerable to the ravages of time, the elements, and overly forceful attempts to jam them into a DVD player. By transferring these formats to discs, the memories within can be played on modern media platforms or saved upon computer hard drives.
Since they founded Lighting Concepts more than 24 years ago, owners Jimmy and Nancy Adcock have prided themselves on the diversity of their lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, home accents, and furnishings. In their 6,500-square-foot show room, ornate, multitiered crystal chandeliers sparkle alongside streamlined, geometric contemporary fixtures, and golden rays splay from wall lights, outdoor fixtures, and table lamps. Green fixtures designed for compact fluorescents and LED bulbs cheer Mother Earth and keep electric bills low, and colorful art glass and tiffanies stand ready to be repurposed as formal disco balls. Elsewhere, in a dedicated ceiling-fan and outdoor-lantern room, more than 140 fans—including 14 outdoor fans—spin lazily from high ceilings.Today, the Adcocks stay up-to-date on the latest styles and trends with biyearly trips to the International Lighting Show in Dallas. In addition, they participate in Lighting One, a cooperative of independent show rooms that grants customers access to exclusive products. They ensure that they always have experienced designers on hand to help customers compose the perfect lighting scheme, and outfit their site with a lighting search tool to help customers meet their needs online.
The tour guides at H&L Enterprises of WNY LLC love showing people around town. But instead of introducing them to sights from a bus, boat, or Segway, they give tour-goers a spectacular bird's-eye view of western New York, the Southern Tier, northwestern Pennsylvania, and eastern Ohio through the windows of a four-seat Robinson R44 helicopter.
In addition to soaring over sparkling lakes and rolling meadows to wow visitors and help them capture stunning aerial-photography shots, helicopter flights also serve the more pragmatic purpose of patrolling pipelines or surveying the land. This allows farmers to count their livestock and entrepreneurs to scope out land they plan to purchase.
