Shop Small Day 281: Cracker Jax

Sometimes treasures aren’t found in neatly organized racks and display cases. Finding a hidden gem is more rewarding when you stubble upon it wondering how someone else could’ve missed it. Much like discovering the prize at the bottom of the box, you can find rewards digging through Cracker Jax.

If neatly organized, color cordinated clothing racks are your idea of shopping bliss, then Cracker Jax may not be for you. If you feel at home in comfortable choas, then this may be more you’re style.

imageSeriously, there’s stuff EVERYWHERE!

Old, new, vintage, antique, everything is mixed together, yet in a strange way it makes sense. It’s almost like walking into a new friend’s kitchen and instinctively knowing where the coffee cups are kept.

Even though the place is packed, it feels surprisingly roomier since they recently expanded.

Maybe you’re looking for vintage apparel? Need an antique accessory? How about gorgeous cards, decorative pieces, or incense? Yep, they have it all…and then some.

You’re bound to find something for yourself, a gift, or most-likely both.

Cracker Jax doesn’t have a website, but you can check them out on Facebook or visit their etsy site for a few of their vintage & antique treasures.
