At Ceramics Plus, the only limitations are the bounds of one’s imagination. With more than 14,000 ceramic molds and figurines lining the shelves, the studio is primed for perusal. Simply pick out a piece of bisque, decorate it to your liking, and then allow your piece to be fortified in the kiln. And when you’re looking to mix it up, the Ceramics Plus staff can share other artistic insights through jewelry-making classes or parties for special one-off gatherings such as girls’ night out or boys’ afternoon inside the mind of a pottery painter.

With more than 30 years of experience in illustrating, art teaching, and graphic design, Art 'N Oddities owner Meri Berghauer breathes life into art with unique classes and gallery showings. In the two-hour goblet-painting class, students adorn flasks and flutes with streaks and swirls of color, adding a festive elegance to even the most mysterious, smoke-emitting beverages. Students in the Mirror, Mirror class spend 2.5 hours crafting all-natural mosaics from magazine pictures, photographs, specialty paper, and discarded eviction notices, and then affixing them to a 10-inch square mirror and frame. Or gather inspiration from four consecutive weekly two-hour drawing classes in which students scrawl a variety of lines, 2D and 3D shapes, and objects in perspective using proportion and texture.
Founded in or around 1937, American Science & Surplus exists today in the form of a science-oriented hobby store. It’s stocked with often quaint, sometimes unexpected, and plenty useful doodads, geegaws, parts, and tools for tinkerers, hobbyists, science buffs, and lovers of the curious and strange. Pick up lab glass and vessels (starting at $2.95) in which to make sand or grab a windmill generator or enviro-battery kit (starting at $11.95) for experimenting with green science. For lackluster homesteads, there’s house and garden trappings, such as chopping mats ($1.95 each), LED booklights (starting at $3.75), and a semi-autonomous bug bot ant ($11.95), a leggy little robot who will create his own electronic hill outside your abode. Dig through large spools of chain, dishes full of severed doll appendages, wide swathes of tiny toys in plastic wrap, military surplus, and infinitely more. The profusion of neatly categorized stuff and riot of color that is the AS&S shop is stimulus for at least five of the seven human senses––hobby-happy and crafty craftsfolk will salivate upon first glance.
