BEST ANTIQUES 

Montana Antique Mall 

Are you looking for an artfully posed taxidermied piglet to tie the room together? Or a 140-year-old settee? Maybe it’s Art Deco costume jewelry that makes you gasp, or 19th-century farm tools. Or the kinds of toys that safety regulations banned years ago, like a child-size push mower with real blades. There’s more than can possibly be described here at the Montana Antique Mall, where dozens of vendors keep the building packed rafters-to-basement. It’s like a museum of the everyday where you can actually afford to buy the relics. Montana Antique Mall: 331 Railroad St W • 721-5366 • montanaantiquemall.com

BEST BOOKSTORE (NEW BOOKS) 

Shakespeare & Co. 

Shakespeare & Co. is the kind of bookstore we’ve all imagined opening at some point in our lives. A little place of our own with a hip location, shelves packed to the brim with books on every imaginable subject and plenty of space to host readings for best-selling authors and local wordsmiths alike. It’s a real shame that owner Garth Whitson beat us all to the punch by taking our fantasy and turning it into a bibliophile’s paradise before we got around to it. Well, not too bad, because now the bookstore of our dreams already exists. We don’t have to do anything except show up and browse.

Happy Days are here again. No really, they’re here again. And again. And again. And again. We’ve lost count at this point how many times Happy Days Car Wash has been here at the top of Best Car Wash category. In any case, you’d think there would be a reason for such sustained success, but you’d be wrong. There are lots of reasons. Like the state-of-the-art touch-free Tunnel Wash that comes with a free visit to the vacuum station (with complimentary washer fluid and compressed air to blow out your vents and door locks). And the self-service mat-cleaning station that washes and dries floor mats. And the self-service dog wash station featuring shampoo, conditioner, oatmeal treatment (!), air dryer and de-skunking.

Ninja Mike’s straightforward menu is a big part of its charm. Owner Ethan Sky has been drawing in farmers-market crowds since 2009 with his made-to-order break-fast sandwiches featuring ingredients from local ranchers, bakers and farmers. The lines to his stand are notably long (but the wait isn’t bad), which is no surprise. The satisfying sandwich fare includes combinations of egg, cheese and sausage. Get all three when you order the Works, and add avocado and kalamata olive tapenade for extra deliciousness. Ninja Mike’s: Clark Fork Market on Saturdays • ninjamikes.com

BEST GREEN BUSINESS 

Home ReSource 

Home improvements can be a tricky endeavor in a place like Missoula, where a house’s every tile and sill and beam is etched with history and character. Replacing a faucet or fixing up those old cabinets requires materials that carry that same time-worn feel, and let’s be honest, recycling is always the preferred course of action in this progressive little town. Home ReSource is a business built on those sorts of sentiments. Its aisles are lined with parts from old homes just begging for new ones. Its rear yard houses windows, timbers and panels desperate for a second chance. Home ReSource: 1515 Wyoming St • 541-8300 • homeresource.org

Ryan just keeps on winning, in the courtroom and in the Best of Missoula voting booth. Keep up the good work, Paul. We hope we never have to call.

BEST STORAGE UNIT 

Pak Rat Mini Storage 

Self-storage facilities may be nondescript, but they’ve quietly become a booming local industry — and the competition is fierce. An industry expert recently counted 1.6 million square feet of self-storage space in the Missoula area, comprising 10,000 units and 86 facilities. How to stand out from the corrugated-metal crowd? Start with two locations, one on each edge of town. Add in 13 different storage sizes. Offer online bill payment and top it off with a moving truck for customers to haul their stuff. That’s Pak Rat’s formula. Clearly, it’s a winning one. Pak Rat Mini Storage: 251-3813 • pakratmontana.com

BEST USED-CAR DEALER

It makes sense that a large dealership (see Best New-Car Dealer) has surged to the forefront of the used-car market in a growing town like Missoula. Volume means selection, and that selection goes beyond certified pre-owned Toyotas. For those who want to browse quality cars of all makes at a reasonable price point, Lithia also features an array of pre-owned rigs list-priced under $10,000, and their top-notch service department means those rigs have plenty of life left in them. It all adds up to Lithia’s second consecutive win in the Best Used-Car Dealer category. Lithia Toyota of Missoula: 4001 Brooks St • 552-4959 • lithiatoyotamissoula.com

Savvy newcomers to the pet-owning scene will scamper over to Alpine Veterinary Care’s website, where the clinic’s specialists have posted a handy-dandy health schedule for your new canine pal. A clearer picture forms, and you book an appointment for all those vaccinations and examinations. Alpine won’t stop there, though. They’ll answer any and all of your questions and brief you on all the tricks of the pet trade, right down to what to do if your sweet little Daisy turns out to be a digger.
