Any cute towns good for shopping west of St. Louis?

In August, DH and I will be driving to St. Louis area so DH can spend Sunday at the Missouri Bluffs Golf Club in St. Charles. I am looking for shopping opportunities in the area (not malls). Also looking for place to stay and things to do w/ DH other days. Have been to St. Louis once before and rode up in the Arch. Any suggestions appreciated.

St. Charles comes to mind, historic town on the river with lots of cute shops, restaurants.

St Charles has a nice historic downtown http://www.historicstcharles.com/att...ping.aspx?ID=9

Depending on how far west you want to go--
Washington also has a nice downtown area http://www.washmo.org/cgi-bin/templa..._shopping.html If there isn't a specific event going on, it can be pretty empty.

My favorite is Hermann www.hermannmo.info/ there are several nice shops, as well as restaurants (recommend the Cottage), and wineries which are really fun.

Thanks so much for the quick replies! I think the shops on Main St. in St. Charles are just what I was looking for.

I loved St Charles, I loved Herman and I loved Grant's Farm, It's free and included is free beer.
