I have visited hundreds of vintage stores over the years and one of my absolute favourites is a local shop, Jones & Co. Louise Jones who has owned and operated the store for 8 years has a sharp eye for quality and exceptional style. The store stocks a vast array of women's and men's clothing and accessories as well as housewares, and is very well organized.
Jones & Co. is located in the heart of Walkerville, a neighbourhood in Windsor, Ontario thriving with restaurants and unique shops. A one-time walk through Jones & Co. is never enough, even for someone like myself who visits regularly. The merchandise is constantly being rearranged to highlight pieces that previously may have been overlooked thanks in part to the excellent visual merchandising by Adele Duck.
Over the years I have found many of my favourite vintage pieces at Jones & Co. If you have a chance to pay them a visit, you will understand my love affair.
