Strawberry season – punnets in stock for every fruit!

After months of blogs about masks and restrictions and closed doors, my goodness it’s nice to just be thinking about strawberries! I realise that it’s hardly summery outside at the moment, but I have everything crossed for a couple of warm months that include sitting outside (out of choice) and enjoying some of the delights […]

Changing the way we work – how life at J&C has changed this year

In the 80s and 90s, Jones & Cane was clearly ahead of the game. We were working from home before it became a hashtag. I say we, but I mean Bryn and Eileen. I was a small child well-trained in answering the phone with “Good morning, Jones & Cane” whilst customers wondered exactly how young […]
