I love, love, love this little boutique. If you are looking for a unique housewarming, Christmas, birthday gift, or just want to indulge in something new for yourself -- this the place to go.
Janie Christine's has nice mix of traditional items -- like jewelry (Pandora), traditional gifts like crosses, ornaments at Christmas, scarves, tea, candles, etc -- combined with edgier more modern things. The selection is small relative to other stores -- but it is always organized and right on the mark in terms of current styles -- from breezy summer dresses to tops, scarves, flip flops, purses, ballerina flats, jewelry.
And the prices? Quite reasonable.
They also stock Tyler candles and are the ONLY store in Stone Oak that has them. If you buy in multiples, you get a discount.
For those looking for a comparison -- It is like Francesca's, but slightly more mature, and more low key -- with less clothes. Oh, and no perky teenagers milling about. It is also similar to Estillo in the Vineyard -- but Janie Christine's is less stuffy, more reasonably priced, and more modern. And the Janie Christine staff won't follow you around, literally stalking you, like in Estilo.
Now, I admit, I am always skeptical about these types of non-chain little shops in the Stone Oak area because generally speaking, they are usually "fly by night" and filled with overpriced stuff that I could easily buy at Nordstrom or Dillards for 1/2 the price.
But Janie Christine's is different. This store has been around for years, is well managed, and a Stone Oak staple.
The owners have incredibly good taste and buy unique things -- clothes, shoes, purses, gifts, accessories -- all stuff you cannot find at department stores.
All in all -- one of my favorites!
