“I believe the trend in tile and stone today is ‘in with the old and in with the new’,” says Darlene Flood, a partner of A Step In Stone, from the store’s handsome showroom at 1149 Route 601 in Skillman. “Tile and stone can take on a combination of looks. For example, it can be ceramic, but with added relief and dimension for an incredible effect. And stone has been around forever, but now there are new patterns, giving it a classic look, with a twist.

HAT HAVEN: “We have at least 200 different styles of hats. Hats are important for sun protection to prevent skin cancer and reduce the aging of skin. They look good and can be very stylish.” Andy Gensey, store manager at Landau’s, is wearing one of the popular small-brimmed raffia straw fedoras.
