I first found out about this beautiful shop through a mutual friend and ever since, I’ve been hooked. Jean Jean Vintage has some of the most gorgeous and unique vintage pieces you will ever find. I even own a sweet little necklace from the shop and love wearing it (you can see it in this post).Β  So I’m super excited to introduce you all to her shop and of course there’s a little fun giveaway + discount code involved as well, keep on reading!!

{MEET THE SHOP OWNER}

1) Tell us a little but about yourself and your shop.
My name is Emily Duffelmeyer but I go by the nickname “Duff.” I’m 30 years old and I live in Michigan with my husband. I’ve had a lot of jobs over the years (archaeology volunteer, daycare worker, coffee slinger, specialty food buyer, etc.) but owning Jean Jean Vintage is certainly the best fit for me. I started my shop and blog (jeanjeanvintage.com) about 1 1/2 years ago. I sell vintage and antique jewelry as well as a sweet selection of handbags. My favorite era is Art Deco, so I try to keep a lot of 1920s-1930s pieces in stock!

2) How do you go about finding your vintage treasures?
I go on a couple big buying trips every year to my top secret spots (!) and I also do a lot of buying close to home. I keep my eye out for beautiful, wearable pieces in great condition. For every 100 pieces I look at, I probably only buy 2 or 3 for Jean Jean Vintage. I try to keep the shop selection very carefully curated.

3) What is one accessory you can’t live without?
My hexagonal 1930s locket. I wear it quite a bit. I also have a gold signet ring that I wear for weeks without taking off.

4) What are you looking forward to most this fall?
Soup is my favorite food to eat and to make, so I am always happy when it cools off and I can cook up big batches! Luckily, Mr. Jean Jean doesn’t mind when I experiment with recipes.

5) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Coffee Heath Bar Crunch! I love to have a few bites in the afternoon instead of coffee these days.

{GIVEAWAY}

Win this beautiful vintage heart locket!

A sweet vintage heart locket with a brushed gold finish. The face of the locket is set with a tiny rhinestone in a starburst setting. The interior has space for two photographs and the locket closes with a tight snap. The pendant is 12K gold fill with a 14K gold fill chain. Great condition.

    I’ve been a jeanjean follower on twitter (and her blog) for awhile. I’ve been loving the Orangier bracelet forever but my current favorite is the Camellia White set, to die for!

  12. August 23, 2011 / 9:21 pm

    Really, really like her selection of stuff — I especially like the vintage ID bracelet / 1940s jewelry. It would go perfect with a vintage locket I already have!

    The ‘vintage beaded clutch / 1950s purse / DU LAIT’ is amazing. Carrying that would definitely be a conversation starter.

    The little tuppence coin purse is darling. I inherited my mom’s coin purse and am reluctantly coming to the realization that it has worn out and must be replaced….all my change keeps falling to the bottom of my purse and the clasps won’t hold. Glad to have found a sweet shop carrying a replacement.

    I’ve recently started to collect lockets and I would love to add this one to my collection! Jean Jean Vintage is my favorite drool-inducing vintage jewelry spot…. I have yet to buy anything (of the woes of student budgets!), but if i had the money half of the shop would be on its way to me right now! I love the compass fob starboard necklace, the rotterdam nautical brooch, the petunia glass earrings, and the petaluma large locket…!
