Total scam. I wandered into her store while on vacation with my fiancee and found a set of cufflinks I liked. I payed a bit more than I thought they were worth but I don't mind ...

Amazing store & owner 12/8/2013

I have been going to her old location since the early 1970s. My father bought me a ring there when I graduated high school & it is my most treasured piece. I introduced my daughter to the wonderful world of Joan Good's & she has several pieces from there too. Joan is not your average shop owner & hers is not your average shop. She has no patience for the typical tourist that has come to NO looking for booze & to be scandalized by what goes on here. But if you are truly looking for something out of the ordinary then this is the place for you. Once you become a customer you will be spoiled for shopping at a "regular" store. She is one of the last of the Quarter's originals. more

Worth the trip 2/23/2013

While walking down Royal street I stumbled upon Ms. Good's store. Walking in I found it disshevled and floor-to-ceiling cluttered. Upon closer inspection what I has though of as clutter was in fact LOTS of thoughtfully collected pieces. Everything from Jewlery to Paintings and much of everything in between. The service I received was prompt and courteous. The only reason I rated this store with 4 stars was the apparent lack of organization. There are simply so many pieces of jewlery in very loose organization that it took two of the staff to help me find what I was looking for. My overall experience was very positive. I walked out with a pair of earrings that I paid a fair price for, a positive shopping (and browsing) experience, and the opportunity to see some of the most unique jewlery anywhere. I would echo the other reviewers opinion that if you are serious about shopping for fine antique jewlery this is a must-stop store. more

i had the shop across from miss good for 26 years before the building at 809 was condemned. Her list of customers was legendary,from Dick Cavett and Paul Newman to David Bowie and Billie joel I myself ran across the street to wait on burt Reynolds when she was giving her undivided attention to another customer. Her inventory was also legendary ,magnificent garnet pieces,cameos peals aquamarines, spectacular silver, turquoise, trays and trays of unique pieces. When her building was condemned by the city she , at 85 , moved a lifetime of collections to her new location in the 300 block of royal. If you were lucky enough to receive a silk pouch with her business card, she deemed you worthy of her goods and service, but if you were a walmart shopper, you were dismissed before you knew what hit you. She is one of the most magnificent merchandisers on the street, and one of it's most interesting characters. She was a close friend of Tennessee Williams,he even mentions her in one of his plays, and that fact for some reason made a certain wanna be crowd jealous... Hence some of the negative reviews...I suggest you check out ms goods store if you truely want to puchase a fine piece of jewelry. And if you are really lucky you will leave with it in a beautiful silk, and have been lucky enough to shop at the most infamous shops on royal st more
