Find Something Unique For Your Home At Joni’s Consign & Design

JAMES CITY-Joni Spangler, owner of the consignment shop Joni’s Consign and Design in the Colony Square Shopping Center on Jamestown Road, is one business owner who decided to turn a long-time hobby into a job.

“I’m one of those people who loves shopping consignment stores, thrift stores, and hitting yard sales on Saturday mornings,” she said. “I call myself a borderline hoarder. So, I decided to turn my hobby into a business.”

Looking for something new to do, she opened her store six years ago. Since then, she has expanded the business into an adjacent space. Joni’s Consign & Design specializes in a variety of items for the home.

“Williamsburg has such a diverse population, but I think everyone will discover a ‘find’ in Joni’s,” Spangler said. “We carry high-end furniture and décor, a variety of antiques, including primitive, some contemporary, a bit of retro, lots of odds and ends, some shabby chic, and a wee bit of funky.”

Her favorite aspect of the job is the people and the pieces she encounters on a daily basis.

“I meet a lot of cool people, and I have learned a lot about furniture and art over the years,” she said. “We bring new things in daily, so I hope we will continue to have a lot of regulars and familiar faces. I want people to enjoy visiting and spending time in the store.”

Another part of her business is helping customers organize and downsize their homes. So, if you need assistance with organizing, downsizing, buying, or selling home furnishings, don’t forget about Joni’s Consign & Design.

Consignors are welcome to bring in up to five items between 3pm and 5pm Monday through Thursday. Consignors with a larger quantity will need to schedule an appointment. For additional information, visit

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
