It has been said that smell is the sense most closely tied to memory, which explains why visitors to Scentchips Cocoa Village often linger in nostalgic reverie over the store’s 64 varieties of wickless candle chips. The possibilities don’t stop at these elemental aromas, as each can be blended with up to three others to create more than 30,000 unique scent combinations. Carved into the shapes of leaves and flowers, the chips simmer in warmers that diffuse their scents throughout the rooms of your home, masking pet odors and the smell of fear that emanates from under your child’s bed.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.

Former health-care management professional and current owner of Mozaic Arts, Inc., Michele Petno began dabbling in the mosaic arts after receiving sample tiles at Wits End––an antique/junk shop she opened in the mid-'90s. Making sure no tile went to waste, Michele bedecked the bathroom door of Wits End with a fetching design that garnered praise from customers and howling hand-driers, unlocking a fiery passion that lead her to explore other mediums and styles of mosaic. At Mozaic Arts, Inc., Michele hosts private and semiprivate mosaic workshops, where she shares arts-and-crafts knowledge that she acquired through years of self-teaching and study in Italy and Mexico. During those classes, participants use included materials––such as shards of glass, beads, and found objects––to create prettified memory jugs, inimitable jewelry, and hangable portraits of animals, landscapes, and shattered car windows. Mozaic Arts, Inc. also rents out studio space for resident artists to work on their masterpieces and brush elbows with fellow glass manipulators.
