The Cricket Avenue store in Oracle was open in January 2014. The eclectic store is owned by Kristy Claire and Jayme Reida. Jayme and Kristy have been friends for over 20 years and are from Kansas originally. There husband’s jobs brought them to Arizona. They got started operating a business in an antique mall in Tucson. They were out “junking in Oracle” Jayme said, when they came across the antique store that was for sale that is now Cricket Avenue. They had been working antique fairs and selling items on consignment. They wanted to be their own boss and buy and sell their own items. They bought the store and named it Cricket Avenue after “Cricket Alley” a boutique in Wichita, Kansas where Jayme’s grandmother used to work in the 1970s.

Cricket Avenue is a vintage, resale boutique store that has a large selection of items to choose from. They carry furniture, antiques, jewelry, vintage & upscale clothing, 50s, 60s and 70s retro, western wear including cowboy/cowgirl boots, western art & items, gift items. “junque” and more. “Something for everyone” said Kristy. They just got in a new line of UNWINED scented candles that are made of recycled wine bottles and natural soy wax. The “relaxing” scents come in a variety of fragrances. The girls said “People like to come in and just look”. “We are getting good feedback from everyone that comes in.” If there is something you are looking for and can’t find it in the store let Jayme or Kristy know and if they come across it they can contact you. If you are having an estate sale or know of one, let Jayme or Kristy know. Cricket Avenue gets in new items weekly and will post photos of some of the new stuff on their Facebook page.

People from Oracle come in to buy gift items for holidays and special occasions. The boutique can help you find that unusual or exceptional gift for your loved ones and will also wrap it for you. Jayme says they are “looking forward to introducing Chalk Paint to the Oracle area and classes to follow”. Chalk Paint is used for painting furniture. It has an advantage as no prep work needs to be done. The store will carry a Chalk Paint line and will teach classes on painting furniture.

Cricket Avenue is located at 1285 American Avenue in Oracle. You can contact them at (520)391-0151 or visit them atwww.facebook.com/CricketAvenue. Come and take a walk down Cricket Avenue. It will be worth your time!
