HOMEGROWN: BooneVegas Salon and Day Spa

By Carlie Kollath/NEMS Daily Journal


BooneVegas houses three businesses run by a mother and two of her daughters.
Jeannie McCreary got the idea to open BooneVegas Salon and Day Spa. She asked her mother, Susan Winders, to run a gift shop, now called BooneVegas Gift Boutique. The two then asked Carla Storey, McCreary’s sister, to start a monogramming business.
“We’ve always been close,” Winders said. “We’ve always been a team. It’s great.”
The three Booneville natives and their family renovated the building and named the business BooneVegas.
“When I was a teenager, we talked about going and riding around BooneVegas,” Winders said. “Jeannie wanted to decorate the salon in old Hollywood (style). The name just kind of fit with the glam and the glitz.”
The front of the building houses the boutique. Popular items include pottery, ceramics, jewelry, children’s clothes, T-shirts, purses, dip mixes and candles. The store offers free gift wrapping and free delivery in Booneville.
The back of the building is dedicated to the spa and salon. Services include hair cuts and coloring, manicures, pedicures, massages and facials. The treatment rooms are decorated in themes.
Storey uses the space as the dropoff point for her monogramming business. The most popular items are children’s clothing, beach towels and purses.
“If it can be still, I can put a name on it,” she said.
