BEST WINE-AND-BEAUTY VENTURE

Good Clean Wine and Good Skin Day
In late 2019, Elle Feldman of the once-beloved Elle’s Patisserie popped back onto the scene with a killer product she co-founded with Courtney Dunlop: Good Clean Wine, made with minimal-intervention at the growing and production stages. That means fewer chemicals, pesticides and preservatives—and hangovers. The duo also has a skincare shop, Good Skin Day, where they sell skincare products including their own Good Skin Day line. Combine the two, and you have a recipe for self-care that we can get behind.

BEST MOBILE MOOD-IMPROVER

Flower and Plant Trucks
Nothing brightens up a dull day quicker than fresh flowers or a new plant baby, and we love that Ozark Mtn Flower Truck and Hickory Lane Plants cart those delights all over town. Ozark Mtn Flower Truck’s sweet little mint colored vintage truck (named Stella!) can be found at events around town and also offers monthly bouquet subscriptions. The Hickory Lane Plants truck is a vibrant yellow and green and is overflowing with lush leafy goodness at every stop.

BEST SHOPPING GLOW UP

Brentwood Shopping Center
The Brentwood Shopping Center has had quite the face-lift in recent years, as the shop facades were revamped and a never-not-packed Starbucks opened up in the parking lot. But 2019 brought even more changes. Several local businesses moved from their old locations into Brentwood, beefing up the shopping offerings as well. Bon Bon’s Candy House, STAXX, Jellybeans and The Press Coffee & Juice Bar all scooted in, and a new men’s lifestyle boutique called HIM opened there as well.

BEST STYLISHLY ECO-FRIENDLY GOODS

Springfield Mercantile Co.
Just like most everyone else, we’re feeling the pressure to replace some of our disposable household goods with more eco-friendly reusable options, and we love the products that we can find at Springfield Mercantile Co. They reduce our waste, but they also spark joy. They spark so much joy. They are the stylishly minimalist but 100% useful items that we love. Pretty beechwood dish scrubbing brushes and darling Swedish dishcloths make us want to do the dishes (no kidding!) just so we can display those sweet little things beside the sink.
