A Shoppers Itinerary
Independently owned and offering their own unique merchandising perspectives, the shops and boutiques in Jacksonville are also uniquely housed in the historic homes and commercial buildings that comprise our National Historic District. You get to enjoy the sense of history while browsing contemporary merchandise.
Since the shops open at 10 am or later you can enjoy a nice leisurely morning. Join the locals for breakfast at the Mustard Seed Cafe. Known for their cinnamon roles, you will find plenty of other options as well. Then head over to California Street where the majority of shops are located.
For women’s clothing there are some unique options. Shoes,
purses and coats are the focus for Jacksonville Company, although you will find much more! The Cotton Broker and La Boheme are great for jackets and separates. Crown Jewel, Picos, WillowCreek, and Farmhouse Treasures are where you will find the perfect jewelry, accessories, as well as gifts and accent pieces for your home. Tobiano (just off California Street on 3rd) offers a highly curated selection of women’s clothing.
When you are ready to recharge, head around the corner on Oregon Street to The GoodBean Coffee Shop. Whether for just a beverage or a little snack, you will find something that hits the spot.
Don’t miss Carefree Buffalo – a sophisticated take on the western life-style. You can find specialty knifes, leather goods, jewelry, Pendleton blankets and a refined selection of items for the home.
And Jacksonville still has an independent toy store! Scheffle’s Toys & More makes you feel like you have stepped back into your youth with its old-
fashioned, knowledgeable approach to their thoughtful selection of puzzles, games and toys. You can ask Linda for guidance based on age and interests. She knows her stuff!
If antiques are your thing you definitely need to check out Trolley Stop Antiques. Sue Tucker has the only Asian Room between San Francisco and Portland! Pickety Place Antiques features a large selection of Fiestaware along with lots more. Quintessence has a mixture of old and new items for your home decor.
Gardeners will enjoy both Blue Door Garden Store and Artist & Gardener. I go into Blue Door lookingfor gifts among Cindi’s broad selection of decorative items and garden tools, but usually end up buying things for myself. She has a great selection for fairy gardens and a nice variety of wonderful airplants. Artist and Gardener is a new store featuring art work by Todd Lovett in addition to sophisticated home and garden accents.
We are also excited to have a bookstore in town again. Rebel Heart Books is a general interest bookstore specializing in new adult, young adutl and children ‘s books. They also feature a small regional and rare book section. For your book loving friends you will also find literature and quote related gifts and journals.
Overall, the big difference in shopping in Jacksonville is that it is a personal experience. It brings back the joy of buying from people who have a purpose – who are fully committed to bringing you special products that you will appreciate and a pleasant shopping experience.
