For 50 years, the owners and staffers of Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing have encouraged the artists of their community. They visit local fairs and set up booths for kids to color and craft, and they do workshops, demos, and classes for artists of every age. As their name implies, they also outfit art makers of all skill levels with top-of-the-line materials, such as Gamblin oil paints, Prismacolor pens and markers, and custom frames perfect for saving favorite art pieces or memorializing a sibling's failure to color within the lines.
Not everybody becomes what they wanted to be when they were in kindergarten. But some, like Mirabella Boutique owner Barbi Dewitt, do thanks to a passion for their vision. Determined to be in the fashion industry from a young age, Dewitt followed through by first becoming a merchandising manager for Ralph Lauren, then by opening her own boutique. At Mirabella, she stocks the shelves with items from both private labels and renowned designers that are handpicked by her, her staff, and a team of stylish woodland creatures. She seeks out the latest trends such as comfy maxi skirts and floral tank tops, pairing them with accessories including scarves, earrings, and statement necklaces.
