Our Story – Maggie Jane's Gifts & Home Decor

Our Story

 "They" always say things like…

Don't open a business during a pandemic.

It started in late 2020 when Holly and Brad, owners of Paint Chips & Glitter Boutique, were out of town shopping. Holly came across a home decor store and fell in love. She told Brad that Main Street in Webb City was missing a store like that and she wanted to open something similar. And who better to name the store after than their two beautiful daughters, Maggie and Ady Jane. 

Don't go into business with your family.

Holly's cousin, Tyler and his wife Lauren were in town visiting when the idea for a joint business venture started. Lauren has worked in retail since she was a teenager and Holly’s knowledge of the local boutique scene made their partnership a perfect match. We thought if we could put our skills together we could make the best gift and home décor store in the Four State area!

Don't quit your day job.

For Maggie Jane’s to be a success, Lauren and Tyler needed to live closer than 4 hours away like they did when the store was just an idea. Lauren said goodbye to corporate retail, Tyler quit his job, they loaded up their 2 Frenchies and headed to Missouri. Holly also quit her “day job” as a nurse to solely focus on opening Maggie Jane’s and continuing Paint Chips & Glitter’s success in Webb City.
 
Maggie Jane’s doors opened in March 2021. We are located in a historic building at 
8 S. Main St. Webb City, Missouri
