Founded by John McCue in 1933, McCue Garden Center has passed down through three generations of tree tenders and plant whisperers. Now, 79 years later, the family's center has blossomed to include two locations: the garden center in Woburn, and McCue's Flower Outlet in Billerica. Along with a knowledgeable staff, the McCue family helps visitors at each of the locations select healthy flowers, shrubs, and trees from the nursery or organic soils and fertilizer from the store, and oversees an adjoining florist shop, which churns out colorful arrangements and lovely long-stemmed roses daily. They update the store's ample inventory to suit the seasons, with selections such as statuary, flowers, and vegetable plants in the summer and fresh balsam Christmas trees, wreaths, and poinsettia-shaped snow cones in the winter. In addition to celebrating the earth's constant revolution with a rotating array of seasonally appropriate plants, they host a wealth of holiday festivities, from October's corn maze to spring's Easter-egg hunt.

Experienced framers Barry Stahl and Bob Clayton built Big Picture Framing from scratch in 2000, holding meetings around an old card table as construction roared around them. Today, framers at 15 area locations craft custom frames to display artwork, photographs, and record sleeves, and shadow boxes protect three-dimensional items such as ballet slippers, macaroni art, or a swarm of wasps. Patrons can dictate all design choices, choosing from metal and wooden frames in a multitude of colors and styles, or ask for recommendations from one of Big Picture Framing's resident experts. Big Picture Framing also stocks pre-framed art, prints, and posters to spruce up bare-walled homes or a drab doghouse.
Lands' End Canvas puts a new twist, and an updated fit, on the classics. Keep limbs limber and dazzlingly denim-wrapped with a versatile pair of women's slim leg jeans ($49.50), whose lithe, fitted look makes it possible to wear them on the job without sacrificing the stretch needed to juggle workplace soccer balls. A shirred v-neck cardigan ($49.50) or chunky cable cowlneck sweater ($69.50) keeps lady torsos tastefully attired, while dapper gents can sheathe their shoulders in the timeless style of a Shaker shawl cardigan ($59.50). Men looking to winterize can don a wool pea coat ($170), whose plentiful pocketry eliminates the need to tote car keys in clunky male purses or on easily tangled leashes. A broad array of accessories, including shoes, bags, scarves, and gloves, provides the cherry on top of any sartorial sundae.
