When my wife and I first moved to Springfield, one of the first things we noticed were how cool a lot of the businesses and shops downtown were. The time came fore us to take our trip up to Minnesota and Iowa for Christmas and gifts needed purchasing. Initially we were thinking we would go the Amazon route, but time got away from us and we didn’t have time to order. This ended up being a blessing in disguise.
We decided to go down town and sweep the stores in one big shopping spree for all our people. In one day, in and out of a couple of shops we got everything we need. So for this mothers day, here are a couple of places worth checking out to get great items for mom this Mothers Day.
Springfield Vintage: A very cool place to get things from the past that feel like they are from the present. Very cool original fashion items that you can get that no one else would have. The owner Linda, takes great care in the sourcing of her inventory, and you are guaranteed to find something funky and unique.
Piper and Arrows: A boutique with really hip fashion pieces. If your mom is a fashionista and loves to look good, this is your spot. They have a ton of options and people who are great at putting cohesive looks together. Also, if they don’t have her size, they will get it for you.
Willow and Birch: A salon that is sure to spoil your mom on mothers day or any other day of the year. If you really want to go all out for mom this year, an appointment at Willow and Birch will get you there. She will definitely feel taken care of.
This is just scratching the surface of what we have to offer here in Springfield. I would say do what my wife and I did. Go out and check all the stores out for yourself. You will not be disappointed with what the capital city has going on.
