All Change
Since our last blog post, a lot has happened so we jast wanted to fill you in with the latest news. Firstly we have closed our shop and moved to online only.

This coupled with car park closures and other mismanagement issues in our shopping centre left us with no choice but to make the move online only.

And 61 per cent are cheaper before Black Friday. In 2017, 49 per...

We thought we would let you know what we are trying to do at Jane's Boutique to offset as much as possible and to do our bit to help. The fashion industry is notoriously bad at creating needless waste we try wherever possible to recycle and reuse. When items come from the wholesaler there immediately 2 noticeable issues.
