Jean Jean Vintage Brick and Mortar Update

If you have been following along with @jeanjeanvintage on Instagram, you know that I have been busy since the start of the year renovating and getting settled in my new shop space in historic REO Town, Lansing. I fell in love with a little Art Deco building in that neighborhood last year: it was a match made in jewelry heaven and I hope that we will live happily ever after. The big news is that I will be open for appointments starting in May! Please email ( or call so that we can find a time for you to stop by. I would love to host you. I will have regular Friday/Saturday retail hours starting after Memorial Day Weekend!

You can read a bit about what makes Jean Jean tick, and how I picked REO Town for my headquarters, in this Lansing City Pulse Article.

Door painting by the amazing Kelly Golden - that is 23K gold, people!

Finally, thank you for all of the emails, notes, convos, messages, and emojis of encouragement these past several weeks. They sustain me!

Real talk about being a "mom boss" with Pinhole Press

Hey hey! Pinhole Press (@pinholepress) asked me to write a little (unpaid!) piece about being a mom + entrepreneur and it's live today. It's a short read, with a few shout outs and some real-talk. There are a few shout outs - @marlaaaron @jewelsbygrace @margaretcross @graydaystudio @metiersf - and some real talk. THANK YOU to all of you who are sticking around to support my work through the child-rearing years. You know who you are. And thank you to Pinhole Press for finding me. I've been ordering from them since Severen was born, and now I use a few of their products for my business, too. Love 'em.
