Launched 5 years ago, Mattress Source has grown from a plucky family-run enterprise to a regional institution, soothing aching backs and brightening up dream times with masterfully engineered mattresses of all makes and types. Models from brands such as Simmons, Corsicana, Restonic, and Spring Air enrich the third of your life spent asleep and the eighth of your life spent practicing trust falls with thick, long-lasting constructions designed to support and relax the body. The inventory promotes deep sleep and good health through a range of mattress types, from the strong, nonsagging innerspring design to the pillowy comfort of sheets of memory foam and latex.
Jesses Boutique ships a West Coast sensibility to its storefront aboard a flatbed of designer labels. With designs by Sinful, Miss Me, Mek Denim, Rock Revival, Urban Behavior, and Ed Hardy, women, men, and children alike can ward off the specter of fashion doubt, a vengeful spirit that rattles sequined chains in the ears of the poorly dressed. Jesses Boutique’s selection of jeans ($26+) long to be plucked from the racks and held tight by a bejeweled belt ($55). Raw Edge tees ($25) can be employed to maintain the charade that men have torsos. The helpful staff at Jesses specializes in personalized shopping and strives to swathe clients of all shapes and sizes in form-flattering get-ups.
United Volunteers' knowledgeable staff lines the shelves with a vast inventory of upscale clothing, furniture, and wares, and uses all proceeds to help disadvantaged people. Peruse well-organized racks or enlist a shop guru to help you locate properly fitting shirts or pants for casual barbecues ($3–$5) or studded leather jackets and pants for crashing casual barbecues. Younger shoppers can don kid-size clothing ($1.10–$2) or challenge their minds with a puzzle or board game ($0.50–$2). Furniture, such as sofas ($100–$150) and recliners ($35), cradles spines while supplying the adequate recumbence to take in a book ($1 for hardcovers, $0.50 for paperbacks), DVD ($3), or impromptu nap. The ever-rotating inventory, which passes through a gauntlet of highly selective sorters, brings in an assortment of other items, such as housewares and entertainment centers, and weeds out unusable items such as torn dresses and forged Declarations of Independence.
Mom’s Family Resale, featured on KSDK-5, circulates home furnishings, clothing, and other upscale, gently-used items into St. Louis–area homes. Upon entry, customers embark on a browsing journey through an expansive 7,500-square-foot resale zone bursting with clothing arranged by size and color, and furniture arranged by its ability to speak when its owner isn’t around. Women’s shirts ($4.99+) and skirts ($4.99+) may have originally heralded from stores such as Ann Taylor and Hollister, and children's items, including toys ($1.99+) and festooned baby headbands, sprout on shelves. French-salon-educated coffee tables ($14.99+) and wizened lamps ($9.99) join the ranks of experienced shabby-chic furniture, and a dollar-priced wing allows customers to get rid of pesky single bills clogging up their wallets.
The owners of Peak Nutrition founded their business with a simple goal of helping others. To that end, they provide customers with the supplements they need to kick-start a new diet, fuel a workout, or muster the strength to rip off their tank tops Hulk-style. On-staff nutritionists and dieticians can further help clients in their healthy pursuits with custom five-step nutrition plans.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city’s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location’s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
