If Ashley Garrard can find jewelry lovers and impulse buyers like her, her new business will do just fine.

A cosmetologist, Garrard was shopping for equipment to start a new cosmetology business when she came across a jewelry store for sale. She bought it.

“I ran across this business for sale, and my husband said, ‘Hey, do you want to run a jewelry store?’”

Now, Garrard owns $1 Jewelry, 310 Jefferson St., which is open from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday.

The store specializes in $1 cosmetic jewelry, but also features $2 rings, $3 flip-flops, $8 sunglasses and purses, hair accessories and other items.

After buying the business, she made it a priority to stock items that are in fashion. And she focuses on friendly customer service.

“I just got a really huge shipment in, so there’s lots of new stuff,” she said in a Thursday interview.

She said the previous owner didn’t do much advertising, so she’s trying to spread the word to area women that the store offers good buys.

She said most customers find several items to purchase. One woman, she said, buys about $20 in jewelry each week.

“I scope out prices where I go. Honestly, there’s the same stuff you can get (other places) for $10 that you can get here for $1. We don’t mark things up” that much, she said.
