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.

Over 35 years ago, Michael Johnson entered the gardening trade at his grandfather's business⎯Johnson's Flower and Garden Center⎯and set out to continue the family legacy by opening a nursery of his own in 1992. Today, avid plant tenders and hobbyists alike flock to Seasons Nursery to pick up native perennials and rare specimen trees. For those without a shopping list, the store's expansive inventory of tree saplings, perennials, hanging flowers, and shrubs can inspire ideas for outdoor landscaping designs or indoor sunroom gardens.
Nearby, turf, pest repellent, and potting soil from brands such as Liquid Fence, LebanonTurf, and Espoma Organic help gardeners keep botanical collections vibrant. Spreads of summer flowers, winter firewood, and autumn pumpkins keep trend-conscious green-thumbs on season, and handy deliverers can cart pallets of plants to homes and vacant lots year-round.
Spanning 18,000 square feet of turf-covered courts and batting cages, Raider's Edge hones bat-swinging skills with practice areas and instruction for individuals and groups. Baseball- and softball-pitching machines spit endless volleys of spheres, their speeds adjustable to accommodate both little leaguers and six-armed spider-men. The two spacious turf courts can also accommodate practice for soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey, and dual pitching lanes allow pitchers to perfect their craft side by side. Weekly exercise and softball practice programs focus on skills such as hitting, fielding, and pitching, and young players put their skills into practice as part of Raider’s Edge’s Red Raider softball teams.
In a massage room awash in shades of plum, one of Serenity Spa Wellness Center's licensed therapists plunges deft fingers into muscular structures to weed out pesky pain points and break up congregations of tension. Increasingly relaxed breaths drift out of the private room, past cedar-colored planks, and toward the far-infrared sauna, which uses dry heat in an effort to draw toxins from the body or elicit confessions from ice-cream smugglers. Aestheticians blend ingredients for facial treatments and combine fragrant swirls of essential oils, catering to individual skin and health issues. In the reception area, hands warm around mugs from a coffee bar, and floral-patterned or zebra-print chairs cradle guests.
