Original Okie: Mary Beth Babcock

by Michael Cooper


Mary Beth Babcock is ten pounds of Okie enthusiasm in a five-pound bag. She’s the entrepreneur behind Dwelling Spaces, arguably the number one spot for all things Oklahoma–but her store is merely a reflection of her larger-than-life personality. She believes in Oklahoma deeply–so much, in fact, that her store has become a debut outlet for Tulsa artists on the rise. Oh, and she has a thing for robots, too, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.
