PRAIRIE GROVE — Downtown Prairie Grove has a new bou­tique and Kyle and Sarah Stokes named it af­ter a fic­ti­tious store from their child’s imag­i­na­tive play­time.

Junk Pink, lo­cated at 121 E. Buchanan St., opened May 12 and of­fers bou­tique cloth­ing for all sizes, home goods and gifts.

The cou­ple’s daugh­ter, Claire Stokes, had a fic­ti­tious store she called “Junk Pink.” When de­cid­ing on a name for their new store, Sarah said Junk Pink was the ob­vi­ous choice.

“We knew we had to bring her idea to life,” Sarah Stokes said.

Sarah teaches clog­ging in Prairie Grove and the stu­dio had out­grown its space. At the same time, she said she sews and has al­ways loved home goods and dec­o­rat­ing.

She put her two in­ter­ests and tal­ents to­gether and when the lo­ca­tion be­came avail­able, she and her hus­band de­cided “to jump on it.” The space pre­vi­ously was oc­cu­pied by the busi­ness, Wild West Em­po­rium.

The store is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wed­nes­day-Satur­day and noon to 5 p.m. Sun­day. The back area of the store is used as Sarah’s clog­ging stu­dio.

Junk Pink has bou­tique cloth­ing that in­cludes tops with the pop­u­lar “cold shoul­der,” ki­monos, dis­tressed caps and tu­nics. Unique gifts and home items in­clude pic­ture frames, jew­elry, hair bows, wall dec­o­ra­tions, signs and say­ings and kitchen items.
