Shop owners find success in Kendall Whittier district.
Tulsans Danielle Fausset and her husband, Philip Holmes, are always on the hunt. They opened Jo and June, a vintage shop in the Kendall Whittier district in June 2015. But their love for vintage began long before that.
The store is named after Josephine, Holmes’ great-grandmother, and June, Fausset’s great-grandmother, who inspired the owners’ love for vintage.
About five years ago, Fausset and Holmes began selling jewelry and vintage-style hair accessories at Vintage Market Days and other handcrafted shows. They noticed other booths sold vintage items, including many they already owned. At the next market, they started selling their vintage goods and promoted their Facebook page to buyers.
They found their niche. Business expanded, and soon it was time for a storefront. Fausset contacted Kendall Whittier Main Street and found a space at Ziegler’s.
“It was exactly what we were looking for,” Fausset says. “I grew up going to Swinney Hardware with my dad, and so Kendall Whittier has a cool place in my heart.”
Jo and June sells clogs, crystals, sage, incense, bath salts and many handcrafted U.S. goods. The store has a couple of racks stuffed with gently used vintage clothing, which Fausset and Holmes carefully curate.
“They are vintage pieces you can bring into your wardrobe and still look modern,” Fausset says.
Fausset and Holmes also do styling for photo shoots, weddings, parties and homes and offer a vintage rental inventory, including antique rugs and furniture, pottery, vases and crystals.
The pair continues to hunt for goods at estate sales, flea markets and auctions. You might find these treasure seekers at a little shop along the road on one of their road trips.
“Anywhere we can try to find items,” Fausset says.
