Editors’ Pick

Catherine’s Closet’s quality selection of vintage jewelry stems from a personal obsession. Owner Catherine Fong has been collecting vintage jewelry, women’s clothing and accessories for most of her life. “I used to go to garage sales with my grandfather and he’d give me $5 to buy something,” she says. Years of world travel would eventually lead to a house full of treasures—cameo brooches, gemstone rings, clip-on beaded earrings, fine gold necklaces. “I was forced to start my store because my obsession was crazy,” she laughs. “Even though I couldn’t wear it, the jewelry and clothes were too beautiful to pass up.” As the jewelry sells, Fong replaces them with more one-of-a-kind pieces from storage and enjoys seeing them off to good homes.
