We pride ourselves on having the biggest brand names as well as the one-of-a-kind artisan creation. No matter what your Missouri destination, your shopping bags will always overflow.
Looking for a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special? You need to step inside Stone Ledge Antiques, located in the Missouri wine country village of Augusta. The shop contains two floors of antiques and collectibles, with items ranging from the 1890s to the 1970s. You’re bound to find a special gift in their 5,000 square-foot sales area.
Apple Wagon Antique Mall, Home and Garden Decor Outlet in Williamsburg houses one-of-a-kind treasures in an antique mall bursting with more than 125 booths. The home and garden outlet features gorgeous displays and ideas for holiday decorating. Among the Fiesta Dinnerware factory seconds, you may find exactly what you’ll need to showcase your holiday feasts.
More than 60 shops and restaurants, two hotels, live theaters, movies, fountains, exhibits and the Hallmark Visitors Center make the Crown Center Complex in Kansas City an outstanding shopping destination – there is even an outdoor ice-skating rink to get you into the holiday spirit. Get into the Christmas state of mind with “A Spectacular Christmas” at the Off Center Theatre, December 5 thru 22. Tap your toes and sing-along with the music of Christmas, plus songs from holiday movies and musicals to remind you what the season is all about.
If you’re looking to check-off items on your holiday shopping list, but driving around town has you a little fatigued, head out to Chesterfield, where you can shop at not one, but two fabulous outlet malls within three miles of each other along I-64: St. Louis Premium Outlets and Taubman Prestige Outlets. Since these malls boast different shops and businesses, you can literally shop-till-you drop while enjoying the holiday activities. If you’re really into the spirit of the shopping season, Premium Outlets has extended hours Thanksgiving weekend, so no need to rush. You can take your pooch to Taubman’s, which is dog-friendly, and have your photo taken together with Santa, at the Paws ‘n’ Claws event (December 7-14).
On the other side of the state in Kansas City, Zona Rosa Shopping District has shops and events filled with plenty of holiday charm. In the span of 24 hours, you can enjoy a pajama party with St. Nick and feast with Santa at breakfast the morning after. By then, you’ll be in a holiday mood, ready to shop at Zona Rosa’s 120 stores.
Home to more than 110 designer and name-brand outlet stores, the Osage Beach Premium Outlets is where serious shoppers go by the carload and busload. Take your entire list, divide up the family (no peaking) and enjoy a bargain hunting thrill around every corner.
If you need a little treat for yourself after all that shopping, show your state pride by giving presents from the amazing array of Missouri gifts and memorabilia on our Missouri Gift Guide, posted on Pinterest.
