This store has been a neighborhood fixture since it opened in August, 1982.  Originally named “Just Smith”, it turned into “Tantau Smith” in 1986, and in 2002 it finally morphed into “Just Tantau”, its current incarnation.

Owner Carol Tantau  collects jewelry treasures from around the world, and her friendly and helpful staff will guide you through an ever-changing inventory of wonderful things.

She is currently featuring many items made from re-purposed materials, and is best known for her typewriter key jewelry, which is made on site, and can be customized for you at no extra charge. 

There are also a couple of cats that attract a lot of attention from our customers.

We hope to be open for business at the new location sometime in March, but there’s still a lot of construction to do!
