The Sparkly Spot — a pet boutique and ‘pawlour’



While they aren’t really fake nails, Trevino can fit cats with soft paws in various colors. They are applied to the claws with an adhesive and keep furniture safe.

Hillary and Brent have discovered that Brookhaven Village is the perfect location with all of the foot traffic and nearby neighborhoods full of pet lovers. Located on the west side of the shopping center near the yoga studio and Wild Birds Unlimited, the pet shop draws browsers from Starbucks and Cool Greens which also are nearby.

“We wanted a shopping center that was very involved with the community,” Brent said.

While the Conleys carry plenty of affordable items from organic and gourmet pet treats to reasonably priced collars and cute doggie outfits starting at $10, there are some unique high end items also.

Sparkly Spot carries limited edition Chromebones collars made of Italian leather and adorned with Swarovski crystal pieces.

“We’re the flagship dealer for the Midwest of Chromebones,” Hillary said.

“These collars come from Italy and Paris,” Brent said.

The boutique also offers Preppy Puppy Bakery items that are wheat, corn and soy free. Made with peanut butter, applesauce, yogurt and other ingredients less likely to promote allergies, the gourmet biscuits are a real treat for dogs say the couple.

Sporting fans can find Thunder shirts and OU jerseys or cheerleading outfits for their pampered pets. A wide range of pet beds including a top brand that uses 100 percent post-consumer recycled bottles will make your pet sleep very well say Hillary and Brent. Or buy your cat a ‘Furrari’ to drive.

From pet totes to dental products to car seats for dogs, the small boutique has something for every pet lover.

For the Conleys, the shop is a natural extension of their lives.

“We love our dog,” Hillary said. “Brent tells our friends he’s livin’ the dream.”
