As described in a film magazine, vivacious Jackie Cameron (May) plays her Juliet to a half dozen Romeos. When the general store operated by her father (Gamble) is threatened with bankruptcy, she borrows $2,000 from Mr. Skinner (Hoffman), the town millionaire, and builds up a fine business by turning it into an up-to-date haberdashery. Across the street is a rival concern, a ladies' millin ery shop conducted by J. Smythe (Myers) from Paris. Kidnappers (Brady and Farley) plan to capture old Skinner's daughter Evelina (Short), and overhear her say that she is planning on buying a dress on display by Smythe. When Jackie buys the dress, they take her by mistake and she is locked in a deserted house and held for ransom. Smythe, who has fallen in love with Jackie, comes to her rescue, and she saves him from a severe beating by dropping jugs on the heads of the criminals.
