CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (DimpleTimes) – Jonesy’s Treasure box focuses on offering Circleville with a storefront that allows vendors to sell their products. With six vendors currently set up, they plan on having at least eight or nine more set up for their grand opening on February 29th.
Toni Jones is one of the partners at Jonesy’s Treasure Box, and she shared with us a bit about their plans going forward.
“We’re praying over this matter to maybe make this bigger, to find a bigger spot because we have so many vendors. Nice vendors in town that need to get their products out to the public,” she explains, as she shows us around their storefront.
Currently, they have a variety of vendors that offer candles, tarts, CBD oil, bath bombs, and a variety of vendors soon to come that will offer things like vinyl t-shirts, antiques, painted rocks and more.
Toni’s family has had a pretty big history in Circleville. When asked about the story behind the business’s name, Toni took us back to a time in Circleville that no longer exists. Just down Harrison Street sits an old white building – at the time, it was Jones’s Ohio Gas Station which happened to belong to her Uncle.
“Any kid that came over there, my uncle would give them a bag of chips, or some kind of candy or something to drink. He was just awesome, awesome guy. They called him Jonesy.” she shared excitedly.
In the future, they will begin offering a flea market for the local community. It will start on May 9th from 10am – 5pm and will happen on the second Saturday of every month. Her goal is to have live entertainment, possibly food and to offer something special for her neighborhood.
“I just want something, you know… This neighborhood has been let down for a long time. [Time to] let people know ‘Hey, this neighborhood is great.’” she closed.
Jonesy’s Treasure Box is located at:
133 Harrison St
Circleville, OH 43113
