Two friends-turned-business partners, Sherri Jungferman and Tanna Reese, have opened an antique store in downtown Mountain View. Forget Me Not, an antique store located on 123 Oak Street, opened on April 19, 2022.
When Reese’s husband, Randy, bought The Ozarks Trading Post, previously owned by Bob Tate, the Reeses acquired many antiques. Opening an antique shop next to the pawn shop would be something they could have fun with, Jungferman said.
Reese and Jungferman faced challenges with spacing. They found they originally had more inventory than space.
Forget Me Not has vendor booths, which add a wide variety of merchandise to the store, including jewelry, china, antique furniture, home decor, clothing, and even a large selection of fabric and embroidery thread.
The store is open Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It will be closed on Sunday and Monday.
Jungferman and Reese are planning a grand opening on Saturday, July 23, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. There will be hamburgers, hotdogs, and live music. These ladies welcome and encourage many people to attend. For more information, call the store at 417-934-1410.
