Alchemy Hour : new or vintage, always awesome

by julespetra

In a town where it takes a car, a train, and a couple hours of leisure time to do any decent shopping, Alchemy Hour is a breath of fresh air. Maplewood (NJ) townies have all the luck. Alchemy Hour is the perfect place to go for something new, trendy, or vintage without having to drive to any massive shopping center or hike to New York City.

Owner, Janean Harvey, has been in the fashion world for a long time but when managing someone else’s shop lost its’ appeal, she decided to open her own. Surfer, stylish, and fearless, Janean is the perfect free spirit to awaken jaded fashionista’s all over. Her looks are awesome and she’s super friendly to boot!

She invited me and my crew over for a photo shoot this week to check out her latest goods- we loved it all and can’t wait for more!
