Best Baby Registry
Most of the time, picking out a gift from a friend’s baby registry involves printing out a piece of paper full of semi-confusing abbreviations and aisle numbers, trudging through the store for an hour and then settling on something. We love the baby registries at Jellybeans (2646 S. Glenstone Ave., Springfield, 417-889-2117) because they are a million times cuter and a million times more convenient. Your pregnant pal’s registry items are all displayed in a little cubby, so you can just march right up to one spot and see what’s on the list, pick something out, and head to the checkout. Easy peasy.
Best One-Stop Shop
Rodi Salon • Boutique
There aren’t all that many places in 417-land where you can do every single thing you need to do in order to doll yourself up for a night on the town—all in one place. Rodi (1328 E. Battlefield, Springfield, 417-886-1211) is both a salon and a boutique. That means you can find a new outfit, nab the perfect accessories, get your hair done and boom—you’re ready to go! Pretty convenient, huh? It makes looking fabulous that much easier, and we love it.
Best Reason to Veer Off the Square in Ozark
Onesie Wednesday at Torn Boutique
We love a good sale, don’t you? We especially love a good sale with a clever name and a simple concept. At Torn Boutique (206 E. Brick St., Ozark, 417-827-5380), located a block from the Square in Ozark, customers can look forward to Onesie Wednesday. That’s when all of the items in the store that are down to a single remaining piece are put on a rack together for a one-day 30-percent-off sale. The next day, they go off the Onesie Wednesday rack and back into the store.
