Who we are
We are a family-run business. My brothers helped me set up Johnny & June back in 2017 but our history in the business goes back a couple of generations. We grew up around a similar kind of business which helped me fall in love with the unique treasures, that have been lucky enough to survive the test of time, from an early age.
My grandparents owned a Jewelry store in the 1950's and in the 1960's they integrated one of the first Pawn Shops to their business. I remember spending summers and some weekends happily helping our parents and grandparents sort items and gems in their Jewelry & Pawn Shops. I remember being specially fascinated with the jewelry that was very old, my eyes always marvelled at antiques and vintage pieces in specific.
I started selling vintage jewelry (from my family's jewelry & pawn shops) during summers in high school at their shops and some markets but didn't venture fully into the Vintage World or the business of it until some years later. Before I did, and during the years of college and after college (I studied & worked as a graphic designer for many years), I always appreciated vintage items, not just jewelry but furniture, accessories, records and specially clothes! Always favoring visiting vintage, antique shops and market's before a regular mall. After I was encouraged by a designer that sold vintage to start selling with her, I did not hesitate at the chance and I started selling my closet ^_^ and learning the process... the rest is history.
Eventually, I ventured on my own, first selling online and then through Instagram. After a couple of years online and with the help of my brothers and family I was able to open Johnny & June at the same location we had spent those summers working in the pawn shops.
I feel fortunate everyday to be able to work doing something I love.
We carefully select, clean, prepare and mend, if needed, all the items in our shop. We love every item in here and can guarantee that a piece you take from our shop will be a special one in your closet!
