Pippin Vintage Jewelry

Walking down 17th St after after a quick dental appointment (I’m pretty proud of my zero cavity assesment!), I stumbled into Pippin Vintage Jewelry, merchants of whimsical vintage costume jewelry and some antique and estate pieces. I spent a good hour looking at everything and playing a quiet game of “Guess the Decade.”
Pippin has little in the way of an online presence, so you will have to visit the shop to see all the lovely brooches, gloves, hats, and matching earring and necklace sets, priced from $10-$60.00. But let me tell you, the baubles are absolutely worth the trip. If you’re a fan of the vintage brooch bouquets that are all the rage right now, Pippin has plenty of large floral pins from the 50s and 60s to help you on your way to hand-crafted-dom.
(And for any gentlemen who may be reading, if you’re considering popping the question, Pippin has a nice little selection of antique engagement rings that sparkle like you wouldn’t believe! Not priced in the $10-$60.00 range, though.)
