A visit to Jones & Co. is like travelling back in time to a classy boutique.
The hardwood floor creaks as you walk past shelves full of memorabilia and clothing racks stocked with quality frocks. The mannequins wear fur caps, glittery sweaters or gold sequined dresses. Near the front you will find the section of the store dedicated to menswear, including a glass cabinet with cufflinks. Tucked away near the back corner of the store is a book nook with shelves full of tiny toys and trinkets from days gone by. Nearby you’ll find a rack of silk and lace slips and oriental pajamas.
There are plenty of dresses to choose from – from fancy lace and sequins to more casual wool dresses. There are plaid skirts, secretary blouses, coats and a whole bookshelf full of vintage purses and handbags. Glass cabinets around the store hold an abundance of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and brooches.
Jones & Co. also carries a great selection of new cards with a vintage feel – from birthdays to weddings to baby showers, there are plenty of unique cards to choose from.
