The Light House's sizable show room brims with creative lighting designs and home décor, earning two nominations for Best Lighting Showroom in 2004 and 2007. Luminous lighting creations, such as the driftwood-finished candelabra chandelier ($349.99), bathes spaces in a glittering wash of elegance, and the bamboo-shade table lamp ($57.60) adds touches of tropical naturalism usually reserved for beach houses and Gilligan-governed islands to side tables or nightstands. The clean white ceiling fan ($73.90), meanwhile, sends cooling winds gushing through living interiors. The assemblage of outdoor lamps renders the stars an unnecessary frivolity, from the rustic copper gas lantern ($532.23) to the looming museum-black lamp ($138). A bounty of home accents, such as the multicolored ceramic mirror ($89), ensures inhabitants will have something aesthetically pleasing to gaze at should the reflections in the TV screen prove lackluster and clichéd.
My Little Flower Shop arranges bountiful bouquets of roses, lilies, daisies, and other flora into elegant, modern, or zany designs to celebrate any conceivable occasion. The shop began after Gregory Goodman, born into an Ohio-based flower empire, met former military serviceman Alan Kelly, awakening his passion and talent for floral design. In addition to predetermined arrangements that send congratulations, celebrate birthdays, and mark anniversaries, the petal artists custom-design bloom bundles for personal achievements, such as going a whole year without cutting a flower. The shop also fills weddings with aromatic centerpieces, bridal bouquets, and altar arrangements. Patrons can add a flashy flair to gifts with mylar-balloon bundles or install lasting flora with potted plants from azaleas to zen fern gardens and other non-maneating vegetation.
Moms Country Orchard provides Oak Glen residents with a healthful harvest of locally grown, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables. Nestled amid the San Bernardino Mountains, the orchard specializes in hard to find heirloom varieties, all of which are grown without the use of commercial pesticides, fertilizers, or sacrificial brussels sprouts. Savor the seedy stuff with favorite apple varieties such as red delicious, gala, granny, and arkansas black. Apple varieties can be mixed and matched and purchased in one-quarter-peck bags ($8), half-peck bags ($10–$12), half-bushel boxes ($32–$38), or full–bushel boxes ($50–$60). Like the popularity of rhinestone jeggings, Moms' stock changes with the season, welcoming winter by stocking the shelves with in-season citrus such as oranges, grapefruits, and blood oranges (all $1–$2 per pound), and vegetables such as beets, carrots, and bunches of fresh greens ($2) can be found at various times throughout the year. Regardless of the time of year, all Moms’ produce is sustainably grown with an adherence to a strict natural preservation program to minimize harm to the planet and their customers.
