  25. I have a soft spot for The Wooden Spoon for being a pioneer in the South of Foster Business district. And I adore their classes! Marguerite Gardens gets my vote for awesome flowers and ambiance. And Foursided, always Foursided...it reminds me of my childhood when I spent hours playing in my moms art studio.

  35. I just love Foursided! What amazing services they offer, you've never seen framed pictures the way they do it, they can turn a postcard into a work of art! Oh, and the cards...I'm notorious in my group for sending the best cards because of their selection! The most hilarious cards for divorces, apologies, everyday, etc. Also, really unique inspirational cards that I've found and sent to friends that are so right on in how we are feeling &/or what we want to express. I love this store so much!!!
