Vintage and bohemian-inspired apparel, costume jewelry, and eye-catching gifts drape from eclectic props at Cloverleaf Boutique, drawing shoppers in with their whimsy and charm. "The Cloverleaf is one of those stores you notice while driving by and think: 'I've got to stop in there,'" said Jennifer Palmer of NewsOK. Colorful throw pillows mingle with kitschy lampshades, and cowboy boots line up for the opportunity to dance with flouncy dresses. Cloverleaf Boutique's one-of-a-kind outfits and gift ideas evolve from season to season.
Outside of swimming laps in chocolate syrup, smoothies at Smoothie King are the tastiest way to improve your health. Smoothie King smoothies combine fresh fruit, natural juices, and special nutritional enhancers into more than 90 flavors (you can customize, add, and subtract the extras), all of which focus on achieving one of seven nutritional goals. Try an antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Punch with pomegranate, bananas, blueberries, apple juice, soy protein, and Turbinado sweetener to stay healthy. Weight-conscious en-smuthiasts can trim down and float away with the Celestial Cherry High, packed with bananas, black cherry, papaya, Turbinado, and honey, and unpacked with fat. You can also customize any smoothie by adding enhancers or “make it skinny” by cutting out the honey and Turbinado.
In a home somewhere in Oklahoma hangs a portrait of a cherubic infant clad in a yellow diaper, beaming from ear to ear as he leads a trail of rubber duckies. This charming family memory will live indefinitely thanks to Main Street Photo-Video’s photographers. The talented shutter-snappers stage photo shoots in the studio or at a location of the client’s choice, armed with props appropriate for everything from baby photos to senior portraits. They’re equally skilled in videography, capturing events such as weddings between humans. But production doesn’t end when they power down their cameras. The staffers also retouch and edit media and can transform photos into custom greeting cards or videos into polished web ads. Preserving already existing memories, they also print photos, restore fading pictures to their former glory, or convert videotapes to DVD.
Sisters Mary Shappee and Gert Shuckhart have been taming horses for most of their lives, beginning as children in 4-H club. While Gert manages Majic Stables' office and rare bookmark collection, Mary's passion for riding keeps her in the saddle, where she teaches private and group lessons that rein in riders as young as 5 years old. A 70'x198' indoor arena allows for nighttime and fair-weather rides, and the 100'x200' outdoor area is dotted with jumps and dressage letters for tricky choreography.
Though cell phones, computers, and gaming systems are known for their fragility, the repairmen at CTC Technical Repair Service keep clients' wallets from taking a costly hit every time their device does. Instead of recommending brand-new devices, the staff repairs screens for myriad Apple devices and sells cases to prevent future catastrophes. Disobedient PlayStation 3s and Xbox 360s learn to do as they're told with repair services and a slew of individual replacement parts, and iPhone and iPad customization services help the devices stand out in an all-ringtone choir.
