The best place in to isn't even up for debate among female Plainfield Patch readers. In fact, of all the "best place" questions we've asked in the last three months, this week's winner -- hands down -- garnered more comments than any other we've posted.
, a downtown boutique, received 22 five-star votes -- more than any other business so far in our Readers' Choice campaign. Three more readers left comments on our Web site.
Readers were downright effusive in their praise:
"I love shopping at Have to Have! They always have the cutest fashions, accessories and home decor. It's the perfect place to find a gift for any woman on your list...and you can get a few great pieces for yourself as well!"
"My favorite shop, hands down. I think I stop in for every single event I need an outfit for! Everything is of fantastic quality and you can find accessories for any outfit! The staff is so friendly and extremely helpful, they are not over bearing but will do anything to help you find the perfect item... no way could I ever walk out of there empty handed. I love supporting locally owned businesses and this is the perfect place to do so."
"Very cute and affordable fashions for women. It's gem I only recently discovered after living in Plainfield for 6 years. Love this place! It's great for gifts or just updating your own wardrobe."
"I love this store - I go out of my way to shop in this boutique of unique jewelry, clothing and accessories. It reminds me of a mini - Nordstrom with better pricing!"
