The Story of Our Family-Owned Jewelry Store

Established in 1970, the story of Sissy’s Log Cabin began when Sissy Jones noticed a log cabin for sale as she was driving down U.S. Highway 79 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Sissy, an avid collector of antiques, began renting the cabin for $50 a month and stocked it with pieces from her attic and home. Soon, word began to spread of the wonderful goods that could be found at Sissy’s Log Cabin.

One hot summer day proved to be a turning point in the store’s history. Sissy and her son, Bill, sold a rolltop desk, which they delivered up two flights of stairs in an un-airconditioned building. 

Upon returning to the store that afternoon, Bill sold a 1-carat diamond without even breaking a sweat. Soon thereafter, the focus of the store shifted to jewelry and remains so today.

Sissy’s Log Cabin Today

More than fifty years later, Sissy’s has evolved into the Mid-South’s largest family-owned jewelry store with locations in Pine Bluff, Little Rock, West Little Rock, Jonesboro, Memphis, and Conway. 

Sissy credits her success to hard work, family, good friends, wonderful customers, and, of course, “the help of a few angels.” Through the years Sissy’s Log Cabin has held tight to their roots as relatives and friends alike took part in this iconic family-owned and -operated business which now employs the third generation of Jones family jewelry professionals.
