I have been going to Calamity Jane's for over 20 years. Tara, the owner, is an artist...she designs and dyes clothing, makes jewelry, collects jewelry, paints and has an amazing website that is at the top of Google. I feel artistic people are not as well suited for sales as someone who is not artistic. In a perfect world, Tara would have the opportunity to have someone else do sales, and she could concentrate on what she does best...ART ! Regardless, she is a cool and unique person, with a no BS attitude. She has had many personal challenges, and I think that sometimes we go through life reacting to people without even taking a second to think about what the other person might be experiencing. If you love unique items, and ESPECIALLY VINTAGE COSTUME AND ESTATE JEWELRY, go check out Calamity Janes.
Going to Britches in Lawrence is like going to the Buckle (you know what I mean) the girls there will not leave you alone, they will try to get you to try on every item in the store ( they work on commission) I stopped going in there because I feel like I can't shop in peace
My daughter found some very cute legging, skirts, and sweaters! They were a great price too!!
