As the son of a designer, Justin Power has been surrounded by creativity his entire life. It’s no wonder that this exposure translated into a passion for aesthetic in adulthood. Feeling a special connection with the Americana lifestyle, Justin opened shop on Tremont Street (in the South End of Boston) just a few months ago and it is already bustling with excited customers. 

Nestled behind an iron gate and a garden of shrubbery, Pioneer Goods Co. is the quintessential urban rustic boutique: “I wanted it to feel like classic New England, as if you walked into a modernized version of your grandfather’s den,” Justin explained to me while I toured the space. “I think that it’s very relatable and offers people pieces with character and that tell a story.” Let me tell you, it does just that. From the moment I entered the store, I could tell that Justin pours his creative energy into each piece. “When I buy something, it’s typically from an estate sale or an auction. Sometimes clients will ask me to keep them in mind for a specific piece that they’re looking for, but mostly if an item speaks to me, I get it. There’s no second guessing.” His philosophy is definitely working! Everything in Pioneer Goods Co. looks authentic and organic, not forced or tacky. There truly seems to be something that could work for everyone.

I’m not the only one that thinks that either. While browsing the collection, I heard numerous potential customers swooning over the details of the treasure trove that they had stumbled into. The sense of familiarity and comfort is surely what keeps people coming back. But it’s not just the aesthetic that makes the store, it’s also the name: “In my brainstorming and research, I discovered that the pioneer species of trees [specifically the Alder which is the tree in the company logo] was known to be extremely resilient and grows faster after destruction,” Justin told me. How fitting for a store that refurbishes and re-purposes antiques! 

If the gallery of photos I took of the space doesn’t sway you, you should head over to the store and check it out for yourself! I guarentee you will find something fantastic to enhance any room in your space. Not in the market for a vintage piece? No worries, Pioneer Goods Co. is still great for inspiration around the holidays (*hint* gifts for family *hint*). Go now!
