Starting a vintage and antique jewelry business with your sister sounds like a magical and ideal scenario.  Building a highly-successful and strong vintage and antique business? Well that takes hard work, and the sisters behind Maejean Vintage know all about that because they are living proof.  Their story begins in early 2010 when Maejean Vintage first began listing a few items on Etsy as a hobby.  Being forever vintage and antique lovers, the curation of the items came naturally for both Laura and Amanda. Only a year into selling on Etsy, they both decided to follow this path and make it a full-time career!  More recently, they've reached their goal of listing 1,000 items in their shop and have just settled into their new Maejean Vintage headquarters in Lancaster, PA.  With flea market shopping and auction house hopping now an everyday occurence, treasure hunting is a main priority.  Since day one, customer service has also been at the top of their list as well, with thousands of happy customers--myself included ;)

I've been such a fan of Maejean Vintage for quite some time--this visit was a long time coming!  I was so excited to meet Laura and Amanda and also to see their brand new studio which they moved into just days before my visit.  Being close with our sisters, loving vintage jewelry and owning a chihuahua are just a few things that we all have in common.  Laura and I both also share something special, and that is our first career of being a teacher. We both left our teaching jobs to pursue the world of jewelry but we forever have a sweet spot for being a positive rold model for young children and carpet time read alouds!  Both Amanda and Laura are currently in the midst of their Graduate Gemologist studies at GIA through distance education and are excited to learn more and more about gemstones.  

It was such a fun time getting to dig into Maejean Vintage's four ring cases each FULL of rings. They also had many of their pieces displayed along with antique boxes which we all have a slight obsession over. Good news is that the girls do sell many of their vintage and antique jewelry boxes in their Etsy shop.  Besides meeting Laura and Amanda, I also got to meet Maejean's newest employee Dahlia and also CC the girls' chihuahua! We all had a ring stacking party of our own, yes including the dog, and posed for some pictures to commemorate our time together.  Although I didn't want to leave--EVER--we had to hit the road as our jewelry road trip continued!

Thank you so much for welcoming me into your world of antique and vintage jewelry Maejean Vintage!  Can't wait to plan a get-together sometime in the future. And stay tuned to see a piece I brought home with me from their inventory!
