It's unlikely that the same outfit would be assembled twice at Angelique's Boutique. The staff regularly updates its collection of women's fashions, sourcing eye-catching jewelry, shoes, clothes, and accessories. On a typical day, the shop's racks and shelves might reveal everything from skirts and strapless dresses to embellished vests. This eclectic selection, along with the staff's helpful suggestions, allows customers to easily come up with their own looks. In this way, the staff hopes the outfits that emerge from their dressing rooms serve as visual expressions of each customer's personality.

However, a trip to the boutique isn’t necessary to start dreaming up wardrobes. Angelique's Boutique's fashion experts update their Facebook page regularly with photos of the latest arrivals.

There's more than one way to appreciate a bouquet. That's the idea behind Avenue Flower Shop & Wine Bar, a successful floral shop that has recently opened a tasting room where visitors can sample wines from Europe, South America, South Africa, and the Columbia Valley. Perhaps unsurprisingly, flowers decorate almost every corner of the space, from the hardwood bar that rests atop small neoclassical columns to the tables that stand draped in black tablecloths. On some nights, wine flavors and floral aromas mingle with live harmonies from local blues and jazz ensembles, which creates a casual atmosphere and teaches lilies music theory. Avenue Flower Shop & Wine Bar also recently branched out into gaming with the addition of five video poker machines.

Noah's Ark Animal Workshop's birthday parties allow attendees to assemble their own sewing-free stuffed animals in a festive atmosphere that has received a host of press attention. Armed with themed party accouterments, such as cups, plates, and table covers, a Noah’s Ark party host preps homes, parks, or abandoned airplane hangars for the festivities before celebrants arrive ready to grab fistfuls of stuffing. The host leads the 60-minute cuddly charge by directing the crafting process, giving guests a brown Waywee Teddy Bear to stuff, fill with a rainbow wish star, seal, name, and squeeze. Mojo Monkey or Cuddlez Rainbow Bear adds celebrity to the celebration during a larger-than-life mascot visit before mini partygoers depart with their newly fashioned pals in addition to a bountiful goody box stocked with stickers, pens, bookmarks, and a $5 Noah’s gift card.
