From a thrift store to a sewing shop to a printing house, these three businesses remain open in Magazine throughout the week.
Sew in the magazine
Ladonna Brahler has always loved to sew. Brahler’s mother taught him to sew. So when the opportunity arose to open a store dedicated to crafts, it was a dream come true for Brahler.
“It has always been a dream to have my own store,” said Brahler.
At the Let’s Sew store, Brahler sells fabrics, makes quilts and offers his expertise to other seamstresses. The company has been open for seven years.
Brahler said she stays busy, helping people from all over who come into the store. A woman comes from Conway for Brahler’s shop.
Brahler gives a weekend sewing class for all ages. Before COVID, she offered the course two to three times a month. Because she is so busy making quilts right now, she doesn’t know when her next class will be.

Khilling Printing & Boutique in the magazine
The Khilling Printing & Boutique opened in 1976, but got a new start when the Davis’ bought the store last month.
Tonya and Jonathan Davis are now owners of Khilling Printing & Boutique. The store prints personalized shirts and paper products.
Tonya Davis has big plans for the store. She said she wanted to grow and get more involved in the community. She would also like to add a boutique to the front of the store. There would be a mix of custom shirts from the store and clothes that she would buy at the market.
The store has three employees and Tonya Davis said the store stays busy all day.
Something to talk about thrift store in the magazine
The Somethin ‘To Talk About Thrift Store has a bit of everything, said owner Jetty Starr.
The store opened in Waldron but opened in Magazine in June of last year.
Starr said she started the business because she loved helping people.
“I feel like it’s kind of like helping out the community,” Starr said.
Ketura Bowles, who now works at the store, started coming to the store because she needed to buy clothes but couldn’t afford to buy them elsewhere.
“I just fell in love,” Bowles said of the store.
Bowles said the low prices are helping families and those in need.
