What we do
Frances Jaye offers conscious shopping for all people and their homes while striving to do good in our community. We believe in the power of clothing and beautiful objects as an avenue for self-exploration, expression and creativity. We love helping our customers find pieces that make them feel like their best selves.
To us, a retail space can be a place of community. We make it a conscious goal to serve all of our customers with the same interest, kindness, and respect. We look forward to interacting and sharing little pieces of our customer’s life with them one visit at a time. In 2021, we began donating 2% off our monthly sales to various charities we are inspired by. By supporting local initiatives financially and by word of mouth, we hope to foster a sense of allyship to organizations doing important work for our local community.
Our social and environmental impact matters to us. That’s why we prioritize finding brands that put ethical practices at the forefront of their mission. We believe that the future of our planet is dependent on the conscious retailer and consumer. We take care in curating products for our store and have active goals of improving this process continually as we grow. We are committed to bringing you timeless pieces that you will love and treasure for years to come.
