Guided Chaos Adaptive Defense Training Center
8 Vreeland Ave Elmsford NY 10523
Survive the "Knockout Game": No-nonsense street self defense combining World War II hand-to-hand tactics and a unique form of Combat Tai Chi. You cannot get this kind of personalized, hands-on instruction in a large McDojo teaching sportive or orthodox classical self-defense. Informal, non-regimented classes are small...and also fun. Adults only, no uniforms, no kata.
Gudeon Family Press
89 E. 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017
Come visit the Grand Central Terminal Holiday Fair now until Dec. 24th in Vanderbilt Hall to see my colorful, whimsical artwork! I create hand-watercolored dry-point engravings with a life affirming spirit that incorporate strong women, my Jewish heritage, family and the natural world. Most of the fair is made up of talented artisans and visiting Grand Central is a great way to get in the holiday spirit early! What better gift than a one-of-a-kind piece of art?

And if we don't have it we'll gladly order it for you. The Bureau of General Services-Queer Division welcomes you!

138 Main Street, Flemington, New Jersey 08822
Attachments started as a labor of love between two sisters who have always been "attached". Starting with Italian Charm Bracelets, which have charms attached to one another, they found they were 'attached' to more and more jewelry collections, and the name was born.
Through the years the business has grown to embrace our passion. Today's collections are selected so that anyone at any age and can find something just right for them at any price. Karen and staff are happy to work with you to coordinate gifts for special events, bridal parties, or to find the perfect gift or accessory for that special someone (including YOU!)
We are so pleased to be able to offer the extensive and beautiful showcase in our Flemington location, and we now offer a selection of our most popular collections online.
