Scotta Brady at Butterfly Yoga

Yesterday, we began a series (re)introducing you to our Find It In Fondren Visitor’s Guide advertisers. And today, we look at six more, all ready for you to stop by and part with some of your Christmas cash! Trust me, you’ll be glad you did!

justJOYart is a magical sort of place. Walk in and pick out plain white ceramic pieces, spend a bit of time creating or allow Joy McAllister to create, and you will have a personalized item that is as unique as you! Bowls, plates, serving trays, wall hangings and more – justJOYart is in the Duling School. It’s a fun, funky way to spend some time in Fondren.

Walkers’ Drive In See that unassuming little sea green building on North State Street? Inside you will find a one of a kind. Mississippi’s only James Beard nominated chef, Derek Emerson, cooking southern classics and new creations, all with a very tasty twist. This Fondren institution is packed at lunch with a daily blue plate, and at night, it’s as causal or romantic as you want it to be.

Real Estate Solutions Home sweet home sounds good. It’s the place you want to be for the holidays. Why not make it YOUR home for the next occasion? Real Estate Solutions can put you into your next place TODAY or help you sell or rent your home or multi-unit building. Just this week, we have helped a frustrated woman find an affordable place in the exact area she was looking for, all through RES. Call Shaun or Sara today and let them get you settled in.

Butterfly Yoga If you are looking for center, looking for peace, or looking to unwind, see Scotta. Butterfly Yoga is an oasis in the middle of Fondren. With classes for all skill levels and drop-ins welcome, Butterfly is in tune with the needs of yoga practitioners in the metro. Special events abound, and new programs start in January.

Swell-O-Phonic Jackson’s ONLY skate shop – and MUCH more! Chane and his crew have assembled the best in skateboarding gear and apparel, along with the must have Jackson and Oxford tee lines. As Chane says, “if we haven’t made fun of your neighborhood yet, don’t worry, it’s coming.” Swell-O-Phonic also hosts skateboard clinics and jam sessions with the next one set for February 13.

Brents Another one of a kind, Brent’s is Jackson’s only remaining soda fountain! Burgers, shakes, malts, pimento cheese and other sandwich favorites from a menu that is as tasty as it was in 1950! While the pharmacy is gone, the gifts and great food are still here, and the throwback to a bygone era remain. This is a classic, folks, and a sure stop on your tour of Fondren.

Tomorrow, we’ll ‘find’ Custom Optical, McDade’s, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Fairview Inn, BP Care Care, and The Shoe Bar at Pieces.
