If you’re looking for an affordable place to find flawless fashion, Library is the place. Jessi Murray and Ãnna Frost aspired to create a fashion-for- ward business with a focus on sustainability, and they succeeded. What started out as a passion project in Jessi’s apartment grew into a flourishing Paseo business after she and Ãnna met on Instagram and brought their idea to life. Library OKC is a place where women can go to indulge in a shopping experience that is not only eco-friendly but affordable and unique. With the Library’s system, you can reserve the clothes you want online, pick them up or have them shipped to your door. When you’re finished with your selections, simply return them and choose your next ones. You even have the option to purchase the outfits you love. Cleaning out your closet? Give them a call and you might make a little cash off your clothes. Library partners with Legacy Cleaners to keep garments fresh and extend their life. It’s fashion upcycling at its finest!
121 E. Waterloo Road Suite 8, Edmond
Founded by native Texans in 2015 (Brian is from Houston and Jennifer is from Amarillo) who transferred to Louisiana and then Oklahoma while working in the oil and gas industry, TexLaHoma BBQ was born. The couple started catering BBQ out of their home to make ends meet during an ebb in the energy field, eventually buying an ex- isting barbecue joint from a widow after her husband passed, renovating it and building a new smokehouse. Seeing a gap in the market for Texas- style barbecue, the couple added the spice of Louisiana and opened with one smoker serving only sandwiches. Since then, Texlahoma has been through six smokers and has added a car hauler converted into a food truck trailer. More expansion is planned (retailing sauces and rubs are being discussed), but get there early. Open Tuesday through Saturday, they shut the doors at 8 p.m. except on days when they sell out of their delicious meats.

3703 N Western Ave.
Mosaic is the newest dispensary to Western Ave. Neighbors to one of Oklahoma City’s famous dive bars, Cock o’ the Walk, and the indie record shop Guestroom Records, the owners of Resonant Cultivation get the relaxed vibe correct. Mosaic sets itself apart with a vibrant pastel geometric interior that immediately makes you feel comfort- able. Local mural artists Sara Cowan and Kris Kanaly set the mood and an installation piece created by the team of Factory Obscura help unite Oklahoma City’s creative community into this retail cannabis experience. With the interior set showcasing the visual brand- ing of Mosaic, the regular flower drops from Resonant meet the same high bar. A commitment to quality products and a multi-sensory experience helps set a strong contrast from other dispensaries. In an overcrowded cannabis industry that often seems to forget about visual presentation, Mosaic is a well-branded concept. From its brick-and-mortar shop, social media, and product packaging, Mosaic has set a new standard of what can be done in the cannabis industry.
Video Games Plus offers a blast to the past with an impressive collection of quality classics. These guys have a passion for gaming and keeping the legacy alive, from more popular and recent formats to obscure vintage finds (Virtual Boy and Neo Geo anyone?) You can trust Video Games Plus to fix broken gaming systems of almost any type, give great tips on your favorite games, offer recommendations and provide impeccable customer service. There is no system or format too off the beaten path to find its ways to the shelves of Video Games Plus, another advantage the shop has over corporate video game chains who put profit and business model ahead of love of the game. They may not be traded publicly on the stock market, but privately, the owners have been known to pull titles from their personal collections for sale to customers.
OKC Soda Co.
1332 W Memorial Rd
1900 Linwood Blvd.
If you’re looking for a different kind
of soda, OKC Soda Co. might be your
jam! This local craft soda company uses
pure cane sugar and natural additives
to create unique flavors. The Strawberry
Milkshake tastes like a strawberry milk-
shake. And the Blueberry Acai tastes
exactly as you might expect that might
too. Most of their flavors tend to lean
more to the “creamier” side, so expect
more A&W than Barq’s from its root beer and hits the mark with more cream than
orange in their Orange Cream. On the
other hand, this unique sensibility gives
their lemon-lime citrus soda an entirely different dimension of flavor.
