Miss Judi’s of­fers stylish clothes and ac­ces­sories for women

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES - By Sarah Haney

Walk­ing into Miss Judi’s Bou­tique at Wis­te­ria Lane, you’ll no­tice this is a shop for the ladies. With ev­ery­thing from cloth­ing and jew­elry to gift cards and can­dles, find­ing a gift for the mother, grand­mother, sis­ter, or daugh­ter in your life is no longer a daunt­ing task.

Lo­cated at 103 W. Wal­nut St. in down­town Rogers, Miss Judi’s is a bou­tique catered to women. Even the name of the bou­tique takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the women who shop there. “When I first started, I named it Wis­te­ria Lane — af­ter the street where the women live on ‘Des­per­ate House­wives’,” stated owner Judi Bacso. “I did that just sort of as a tonguein-cheek thing, be­cause women would know. But, I had al­ways just called the shop Miss Judi’s Bou­tique — so, now I call it Miss Judi’s Bou­tique at Wis­te­ria Lane. Most peo­ple that know me and know the store will just call it Miss Judi’s.”

Judi, along with her late hus­band Ge­orge, first bought the build­ing where Miss Judi’s is lo­cated in 1996. At the time, Judi had a shop called Miss Judi’s Pas­sion which was sim­i­lar to the cur­rent bou­tique. “I left in 2002 and opened Judi’s Hall­mark in Fayet­teville,” noted Judi. “I closed that in 2009, but we’ve al­ways owned this build­ing and we ren­o­vated the up­stairs and we have two apart­ments up there that stay rented all the time. And I would just lease out the down­stairs.” That is, un­til 2013 when Judi’s hus­band was look­ing into re­tir­ing and sug­gested she open up an­other bou­tique since the build­ing was open. Miss Judi’s Bou­tique at Wis­te­ria Lane has been in busi­ness ever since then.

Brows­ing through the bou­tique, you will find many fine of­fer­ings in­clud­ing jew­elry. Cur­rently, Miss Judi’s car­ries a line of jew­elry based out of south­ern Mis­souri called Dry Gulch, which is hand­made jew­elry made out of re­cy­cled old jew­elry. “They’re beau­ti­ful,” added Judi. “They use old pins and crys­tals — they’re just gor­geous and very unique.”

All of the clothes in the bou­tique are made to flat­ter the fig­ure — they are trendy and stylish, but they’re also very well-priced and com­fort­able. With the up­com­ing sum­mer sale, there will be even more great prices on all of the beau­ti­ful cloth­ing — in­clud­ing $20 and $15 sale racks. Miss Judi’s also usu­ally has an on­go­ing sale rack full of fan­tas­tic pieces at a rea­son­able price.

In ad­di­tion to clothes and jew­elry, the bou­tique also car­ries a gift line, a can­dle line, and just added an­other card line, bring­ing it to three card lines of­fered. The bou­tique al­ways has cute gifts that would make won­der­ful gifts for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Christ­mas — you name it. There is plenty of home dé­cor for sale that would make a beau­ti­ful ad­di­tion to your liv­ing space, along with a wide va­ri­ety of fall ac­ces­sories.

Miss Judi’s Bou­tique at Wis­te­ria Lane is open ev­ery day, ex­cept Sun­day, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The bou­tique will be open late on both nights of the Frisco Fes­ti­val on Aug. 25-26.
