NEWS: JJV Has A New Home in The Mission District!

After searching for nearly two years straight and much ado to no avail, I finally found a place for my vintage to call home.  Located at the corner of 21st and Mission streets Joules Jewels Vintage has moved up!

It took us a while to move all the vintage into the space and install all the necessary shelves etc!  Three van loads later, we got it all in!



67878_10151409225363740_762182021_nWe don’t have a storefront at the moment (that’s the next step!), but it’s a small showroom/boutique on the second floor of a lovely building in The Mission that is all set up for you to shop by appointment.  There is a room with three wall racks totaling over 20 feet in length and a wall of shoes!  Shoot us an e-mail and schedule your time to shop!  If you are looking for something in particular, please be sure to mention it!  Groups welcome!  Bring your girlfriends, your homeboys or your boo, coming to shop at JJV is like shopping a huge fabulous closet!




We will be officially launching next month with a brunch-themed shopping experience!  This launch is invite only, so be sure to add your name and e-mail to our JJV SHOP LIST!  You can count on a sweet sale during our opening too!  Stay tuned for more awesomeness!


xoxo, Joules

SHOPPING: The Ruby Collection for JJV

My grandmother, Ruby Nickens, was a fascinating woman.  She collected a vast amount of costume jewelry in her lifetime (December 23, 1923-August 27, 2010).  I was very lucky to inherit her entire collection.  She collected everything from rhinestone earrings to Bakelite bangles.  I’m am so excited to be able to honor her and showcase her lifelong collection.  Each listing has a little piece about the history of her life followed by gorgeous macro photographs of each piece.  Here are a few just wet your whistle.

UPDATE: #CyberMonday Shopping Sales & DIY Furniture

Okay so you know that the Cyber Monday sale ends at 11pm on Tuesday 11.29.11!  You will automatically get 10% off and free shipping by using the code CYMON11 at checkout on ETSY or JJVSHOP.COM!

Also, after going on a few thrifting trips, I have a few haul and DIY progress photos to share with you!

First, I got this super cute bookshelf, German-made mod tea cup set, and a mid century goose neck brass lamp.  I love them!  I’m going to do a little rehab on the shelf and I’ll show you guys later.

My favorite part about this set is the cup rest in the saucer is off-center.

Isn't this lamp awesome!?

Also, I’ve been working on some good ‘ol diy projects around here.  I recently came across 6 America-made plywood dining chairs.  They needed some TLC and a little handy fix it know-how.  Here are some progress photos!

I love how aerodynamic and sleek these look now. Talk about gorgeous.

No- it's not still wet. It's just THAT shiny!

Okay, well- I’m off to list more items in the shop!  Happy holidays and happy shopping!
