New boutique owner says all women are ‘worthy’ of designer items

Jen Bailey wants all women to know they are worthy to look and feel their best, and all while saving some money at the same time.

Her new Worthy shop in Oneida is a premium and designer resale boutique offering women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories from the likes of Gucci, Prada, Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney. Her opening day was Feb. 5, and Bailey said the response from customers has been very encouraging.

“I had an excellent first week, and everyone was just so very welcoming,” she reported. “People were very positive, letting me know they really want this in Oneida.”

Worthy owner Jen Bailey poses Feb. 15 at the counter of her new shop in Oneida. She offers both new and pre-loved designer women's clothing, jewelry and accessories.

Nicole Bandlow of Oneida made her first trip to the shop Feb. 15. She admitted she was “intrigued” by the thought of having such a classy place to shop nearby.

“I really love high-end things, so I am excited to have a place like this in Oneida,” Bandlow said. “And then I met Jen, and she is great, too. I am definitely coming back. I am so glad she is here.”
