city’s oldest antique resale shops and a forerunner of the resale shop business in Monett. Opened in 1995, V.B. Hall Antique Mall, owned
by Viga Hall, started renting booth space to those who wanted to de-clutter their attics and pass along some of the heirloom belongings they no longer
More than 2,000 albums and antique record players are tucked away in Mr. Warren’s booth on the ground floor at Clary’s C, located at 311 E. Broadway in Monett. “I’m making my booth all about music,” Warren said. His collection includes opera, swing and classics. Melonie Robertsfirstname.lastname@example.org
needed or wanted. “I was wondering what to to with this building and a friend of mine in Pierce City suggested turning it into an antiques store,” Hall said. “I started looking at other antique warehouses and went to one in Hollister,” Hall said. “The owner was sitting out front, smoking a cigarette and when I asked him what he had he told me to go on in, I’d probably find something I liked. “I went in and the place was dark, dirty and you couldn’t breathe in there. I thought if that guy could be successful in business, we could certainly do well with a first class place.” Hall started renovations, and decided not to go cheap. Air conditioning, heat and lights were installed, and the business opened that July. “This is like an incubator for small business owners,” added Kathy Hoyer, store manager. “We have over 50 vendors who have everything from a glass shelf to an entire room rented for their merchandise.” The store is a destination stop for travelers as far away as England who come to the United States to travel and search for heirloom-quality merchandise. “We have loyal customers who come back year after year,” Hall said. “We fill a niche that other businesses can’t.” The store offers a treasure hunt offering customers the opportunity to locate an item posted on their Facebook page and
the winner receives it at no charge. The store offers everything from antiques and collectibles to toys, books, glassware, knick-knacks and home decor and is open every day except Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Pitiful to Posh Another niche business is Pitiful to Posh, located at 110 W. Broadway, a store offering re-purposed furniture and home decor. Owned by Kathy Davis, the shop also features booths for vendors to rent and stock with their own items to sell. “We opened in October 2012 when I got the idea during a trip to Kansas,” Davis said. “I saw some painted furniture and thought I could do that, take something old and make it cool.” Davis buys a lot of her stock at auctions and then paints, decorates, rehabilitates and transforms items into minor works of shabby chic art. “I called my husband, Chris, on the way home and told him I was going to open a store and call it Pitiful to Posh,” Davis said. “I like taking something no one else wants and turning it into something useful.” Davis also does custom work for customers who bring in their furniture to be refurbished. “I love doing my own painting, though,” Davis said. “It takes practice.” The shop is charmingly arranged in decorated vignettes to repurposed showcase items in a home setting.

Pregnant sister facing jail arouses reader response
DEAR ABBY: Your answer to “Heartbroken in Alabama” (Jan. 2) did not go deep enough. The pregnant sister, “Nicole,” who is facing prison time, needs to contact the Department of Children’s Services in her county/state as soon as possible. They will oversee the placement of her child if said child is born in jail or prison. A child born in custody becomes a ward of the state, and if arrangements can be made prior to birth for a foster family, it could benefit the child and “Heartbroken.” OBSTETRICAL RN IN MICHIGAN DEAR RN: Thank you for writing. Readers’ views were emotionally charged about this subject, as you will see: DEAR ABBY: “Heartbroken” is upset because her parents want to raise her sister’s child while her sister serves a prison sentence. It should be the sister’s decision who will raise the child, no one else’s. It sounds like the parents intend to maintain the family ties and make sure the child knows his/ her birth mother, regardless of the circumstances. This is especially important, since the birth father is married and probably unavailable. It’s unlikely the birth mother would be released from prison ready and able, emotionally and financially, to care for her child. But if the parents have custody,
JEANNE PHILLIPS DEAR ABBY a relationship can still be formed and the child won’t be cast to the wind. If I were the birth mother, I wouldn’t want my child raised by a sister who has no compassion or empathy for me. “Heartbroken” is behaving like the child is a commodity with no rights or needs of his/her own. That child needs to view the birth mother as someone of value (as everyone is) in order to develop a healthy sense of self. I urge “Heartbroken” and her husband to educate themselves about the emotional needs of adopted children before they take ANY child into their home. ADOPTIVE MOTHER IN CALIFORNIA DEAR ABBY: “Heartbroken” may desperately want to be a mother and her mother may want to raise her grandchild, but has either of them given consideration to the special needs that Nicole’s child will likely be born with? We have two adopted children whose birth mothers had varying degrees of alcohol and drug dependency. Our
boys have learning disabilities, seizures, ADHD and more. They require numerous kinds of therapy and more doctors’ appointments than we had with our six biological children combined. Adoption is a wonderful process and the joys of raising a child with special needs are numerous. However, “Heartbroken” and her mother both need to be aware that adopting a bundle of joy whose mother was drugged and/ or drank during pregnancy means they will be raising a child who has some level of disability. “Heartbroken,” DO YOUR RESEARCH. I’d hate to see your heart broken again. MOM WHO KNOWS IN IDAHO
DEAR ABBY: Having an addiction does not absolve Nicole from facing
the music for her past actions—she may indeed serve time. But respect and empathy are more appropriate reactions to her situation than judgment and criticism. It’s likely Nicole is already providing herSELF with plenty of those. “Heartbroken” should consider talking with her sister to validate how hard it must be for Nicole, who “always wanted to be a mom,” to finally be pregnant but facing jail time instead of nursery time. I know several women in the same situation, who acted on what they perceived to be in the best interest of their child. They facilitated the adoption of the child, most often sending the child to a loving and trusted relative, especially a sibling. ADDICTION MEDICINE DOC IN NEW ENGLAND
