Retail Therapy Adventure

Discover a local brand that you just can’t live without.

Go antiquing in a town off the beaten path, reveling in the intricacies of the past.

The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and coming out with only a loaf of bread are three billion to one.– Erma Bombeck

Go for the Deal

But for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, shopping is an adventure, plain and simple. Whether perusing small town antiques or big city boutiques, it’s all about the challenge, that giddy feeling of unearthing the best of the best in a new place like Oklahoma.

For some, shopping is an art; for others, it’s a sport. It can be a vice and it can be a cause. Some love it. Some hate it. Rarely is someone indifferent.– Pamela Klaffke
