Clothing keeps people warm and looking fashionable, but its most important duty is replenishing bellybutton lint. Keep navels stocked with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of apparel, accessories, and home accents at Pookie Jane's Boutique in New Braunfels.
A rustic storefront and colorful signage lure passersby to the doorstep of Pookie Jane's Boutique, where brand-name clothing and quirky home accents stock shelves and line racks. Mine the store's nooks for threads woven by popular designers including Elan and Dana Stein, or hunt down stylish accessories such as belts, purses, and jewelry to accompany a chic new dress or velcro suit. Eccentric home accents volunteer to adorn domiciles, such as Blackwater Folk Art metal signs ($21.95+) and soy-based candles ($15.95). Bedazzled Ritz and Glitz wineglasses ($26.95) add sparkle to swigs, and cork cages ($26) stand as a decorative centerpiece and prevent discarded plugs from escaping back into nature.
Pookie Jane’s Boutique
With its corrugated sheet-metal siding and rough-hewn wood pillars, the façade of Pookie Jane’s Boutique hearkens back to a frontier saloon. But the rustic exterior belies the boutique’s sleek collection of designer apparel and accessories by Consuela, Voom, Va-Va, Free People, 3 Sisters Coats, Grazie Footwear, Yellow box, Children's apparel and gifts, Pink Panache and Lux Jewelry. In addition to bold-patterned threads, the store brims with hand-wrought home accents from local artisans, including Jane’s own hand-poured soy candles, whose warm glow and sweet scents prove a romantic alternative to a flaming rose bouquet. Pookie Jane's Boutique also features a large gift selection and decor to spruce up a loved one's "man cave."
