Batesville has a variety of unique and different downtown shopping places for everyone headed this way.  Today I wandered into a business and met the owner, an old friend, Raquel Biervliet, and am thrilled to see her with her own thriving business downtown!

The children’s boutique specializes in sizes 0-16, the difficult ages and sizes to find to clothe children.  She also carries a line of maternity clothing, certainly a necessity in every town.  Diaper bags and other mom/baby necessities are also in stock.  What a jewel of a store for parents or grandparents or good friends!

The Small & Hip Children’s Boutique is located at 148 E. Main Street, Batesville, AR  72501, next door to Randy’s Music Store (a good friend of mine).  You may email her at, and follow her on Facebook.  Be sure and visit Raquel’s boutique, I assure you she will make you feel welcome and assist you in any way she can, she is good people!  Ginger
