SPRING BRANCH, TX –Imagine driving into a rock and landscape yard to purchase your garden materials and being swept away by a breathtaking boutique and a unique home furnishings store nestled amongst old-growth live oak trees. It’s the thrilling feeling of unearthing hidden treasure, and it’s exactly what customers experience when they stop at Thomas Stone & Materials and discover Choices & More. The businesses are located on Hwy 281, just eight miles north of Hwy 46, on the left.

The hottest selection of clothing, jewelry and decorative items for the home can be found inside Choices & More. The boutique is cozy and classy, filled with spectacular finds. Shop owner Brenda Thomas says first-time customers are often at a loss for words when they enter her boutique: “So many customers, especially ladies, come into the store and they literally stop breathing because they are so overwhelmed by all the goodies. Many of them say, ‘I can’t believe this place is in a rock yard,’ or, ‘I’ll be back without my husband.’”

Customers also say they plan to do all of their Christmas shopping at Choices & More, which offers a full array of seasonal décor, such as fall and Christmas, prior to each season. The shop is a perfect destination for a girls’ shopping excursion, a Senior Citizens’ group day out or anyone searching for something special. Thomas’ husband, Bill, who owns Thomas Stone & Materials, is retired from the USAF; in order to honor military personnel, each Wednesday military service men and women receive a 10 percent discount at Choices & More and Thomas Stone & Materials.

Wait! There’s More!Fine shopping isn’t the only thing customers will find. Thomas notes that some people don’t have time or just don’t have a vision about how to put together a classy and timeless look for their homes, which is where Choices & More comes in. Thomas and her sister, Katie Judd, offer expert design tips for home decorating, and will work with customers either at the store or set an appointment to come to their residence and help with decorating needs.

Customers may purchase gift certificates as well as items from customers’ Wish List registry—a list of desired items compiled by female customers. Choices & More also simplifies life for friends, family and, especially, husbands, ensuring they can shop with confidence, knowing whatever they purchase from “the list” will be just the right gift.
