Jill’s Paint

Best Paint Shops, November 2009
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Jill’s Paint has been a neighborhood fixture for decades instead of several years—the vintage ephemera adorning the walls and the familial manner of manager-brothers Sam and Bob Villarroel have that effect. A full range of Benjamin Moore products is offered, along with hard-to-find brands like Mythic (one of five options that are free of smelly volatile organic compounds—aka VOCs—available). “Jill of all Trades” Peggy McCloud—the owner and “Jill” of the store’s name—is also an oenophile who opens her private cellar for complimentary tastings each afternoon.
