As a native to the Joplin, Missouri area I have always had to travel in order to find unique clothing, shoes and accessories. And, although I still find myself traveling to other towns for most of my purchases I have discovered some real treasures only ten minutes from my front door.
Downtown Joplin is the location of the resale shop, My Sister’s Closet. MSC offers softly worn clothing, shoes and accessories. The unique pieces found at MSC match the uniqueness of the shop owner herself. MSC has something for everyone, from the die-hard vintage lover to the on-trend, designer girl. Like people always say, "one man’s trash is another man’s treasure."
Sophie is a boutique located near Missouri Southern State University in Joplin. Sophie provides customers with a plethora of handbags, accessories and shoes. The boutique owner brings in new brands to introduce Joplin to outside the box looks and designers. Limited quantities of each item ensure that the customer won’t be wearing the same shoes as her neighbor at the neighborhood barbeque.
Located in Joplin’s Northpark Mall, Dry Gulch is a different type of jewelry and bead store. Custom-made bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings and much more can be created in-house within one day. Dry Gulch also offers one-of-a-kind jewelry designed by the store owner and employees. Glass beads, semi-precious stones and Swarovski crystals oh my!
