Rebecca Brown started making jewelery in her basement. Now, almost 30 years later, she's here in Clinton owning her own store.
"It was probably just a crazy moment. It just didn't work out for them so when he took it back, I went back to managing it and ended up buying it," said Rebecca.
It was 1997 when Rebecca Brown took over Clinton Jewelers. She says her shop is more of a gallery than a jewelery store.
"We like unique pieces, we like hand made pieces, we like to be different," she said.
For Rebecca, it's not just about the sale.
"It's more about the people. It's something that I don't think you get in other places. You can't get that in a big store, that's special," she said.
As an owner, Rebecca spends a lot of time working behind closed doors, work that no one sees.
"You come in and you think, oh doesn't it look nice, everything's great. But even though the doors are locked, you've got many hours," she said.
Despite the hours, she says she enjoys seeing her customers continue to come in.
"It benefits everybody to shop locally, and what would the little towns look like without all the little stores? That's part of what makes the town," said Rebecca.
Rebecca says she hopes to continue to sell unique jewelery to her customers.
