Mary Jones Vintage & Glamour was originated by friends, Julia Jones and Mary Allen, initially to help Mary to deal with the remainder of a large estate of clothes left to her by her good friend, Miss Jackson.

Miss Jackson's estate was extensive and extremely high class. After being in the antiques and vintage trade for many years, as well as having enjoyed a very successful career in newspapers, Mary felt that she needed some new impetus and asked Julia to join forces with her.

A lawyer by trade as well as being a self confessed shopaholic (reformed! ... she says) and professional EBAY trader, Julia was happy to accept the challenge.

Together, Julia and Mary worked hard to make a name for their high class couture brand of vintage.

Miss Jackson's estate finally re-homed, Julia and Mary successfully obtained two further extensive estates which ensured that the quality of stock remained as high as ever.

In 2014 Mary stepped out of the business due to ill health and Julia has carried on their passion alone, dealing with the latest estates, travelling the country in search of high class vintage and opening a fabulous showroom in Ainsdale Village.

Although no longer active in the business Mary can often be seen at local vintage fairs and the pair continue to work together in sourcing the fabulous vintage which has become their trademark.

In November 2016 Julia expanded the premises to a beautiful showroom in Ainsdale Village which has just celebrated its first year of trading. Julia is ably assisted in this enterprise by Karen and Faye who staff the shop and cope with the demands of working with a vintage diva!

The showroom is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am - 4pm with Sundays and evening appointments still being available by prior arrangement.

The shop offers the ultimate vintage buying experience without any pressure, in a warm relaxed atmosphere. There is a huge range of the finest vintage mixed in with chosen designer pieces to cater for all tastes.

For the gentlemen the shop offers a dedicated gent's room fully stocked with with a carefully sourced selection of gent's suits, tweeds, hats and accessories both high class vintage and designer.

The shop has its own parking, wifi and offers complimentary drinks for those clients who prefer to wait for their other halves in the comfortable reception which has proved very popular.

Rather than slowing down with the opening of the shop Julia's passion for vintage has intensified and she has continued to regularly attend vintage fairs around the country as well as hosting charity events in the shop and organising, what are fast becoming legendary, vintage fashion shows ensuring that the Mary Jones Vintage name is spread far and wide. As she says - once you are bitten by the vintage vampire you are doomed - but what a fabulous way to go!! x
