At Blazed & Bedazzled, customers paint their own pottery, choosing from a menagerie of prepotted ceramics to colorfully adorn. Wielding a brush at the translucent glass tabletops, guests can decorate a jumbo mug ($16) or a business-card holder ($15) with a fancily plated name or pictures of fax machines. A personalized switch-plate cover ($17) basks rooms in a one-of-a-kind glow. Gussy up a curvy bowl ($13) and apply a grimacing self-portrait to a cupcake box ($22) to keep desserts safe from the sticky fingers of pastry thieves. A piggy bank ($13) makes an attractive shell for artistic expression, in which the painter may stow away pennies or a recursive series of increasingly tiny pigs. A friendly staff is always on paint-flecked hand to guide customers and demonstrate effective painting techniques.

In the late 1970s, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's particular set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
