Pippin Vintage Jewelry

LIKE GRANDMA’S JEWELRY BOX, ONLY BIGGER. That is, of course, unless your grandma’s jewelry collection could be showcased in a fairly sizable store, spans more than a century and is organized by decade, style, color, material and theme. From crazy costume jewelry, to fabulous bakelite pieces, to high end collectors pieces, this little Chelsea treasure box has it all, and at really great prices—and this time I don’t even mean by New York standards. I mean they’ve got great prices by normal standards. Also check out Pippin Home next door for the same great deals on furniture and home decor!

The Family Jewels

UMM… ADORABLE. That about sums it up. The Family Jewels is for that girl who loves to dress like the classic beauties of the olden days. From 1920s flapper dresses to 1950s full flowery skirts to 1980s flamboyant sequins, the dresses are superb. While dresses reign supreme, skirts, blouses, purses, hats and jewelry nicely round out the womens’ collection. And don’t forget the heels—they’re to die for. They’ve got the most extensive collection of vintage heels I’ve ever seen. Plus, vintage swimwear that actually looks functional and wearable! That’s a first-time-find for me. This little Chelsea boutique has such great womens’ clothing that I chose not to focus on the mens’ selection, but they do have suits and accessories for men as well. The pricing can get a little steep, but you certainly get what you pay for. Unlike other vintage stores in New York that charge an arm and a leg for any old piece of cloth, here the garments are well cared for, unique and authentic.
