Joan Druxman-Jones, the leather-clad, rock-star chic owner of Joan’s Accessories and More, says she’s “starting over at 73,” but that’s not quite accurate. Although her trend-setting boutique has been in its current home above Eyelet Dove for just two years, Druxman-Jones (mother-in-law of Winnipeg jewellery designer Hilary Druxman) has been in the fashion business for more than five decades. “I’ve seen bell-bottoms three times,” she laughs. Indeed, she’s seen it all, which is precisely what makes her Academy Road shop so special. Druxman-Jones has a discerning eye for hunting down beautiful bags and bold cocktail rings you won’t see anywhere else. Inspired by fashion’s constant evolution, her drive to find the next big thing is reflected in her thoughtfully chosen wares. “When I started in the business, you matched your shoes to your handbag. Now, there are so many possibilities.” 485 Academy Rd, 204-415-4564.
