This is me, Jennifer Boyd and my reality! Try to take some product shots and
I get photo bombed by a strangely dressed 9 year old boy, my son.
Frippery Vintage started as a website in 2013 and then a brick & mortar
location opened at the end of 2013 and both are going strong and keeping
me very busy.
I have a bachelors degree in art history from Temple University and a post-
graduate degree from Sotheby’s Institute in London. I worked my way around
the globe with various auction house jobs in London, Rome, Philadelphia
and Houston landing in Austin in 1997 where I opened my first shop specializing
in 19th century furniture. I closed that location when I had my son and enjoyed
being a stay at home mom for 7 years before starting Frippery Vintage in our
The question I get asked everyday is where do I find the jewelry, well that is the
challenge. The answer is anywhere and everywhere; flea markets, estate sales
and auctions. I take two major buying trips a year, last year was Rome and London,
as well as smaller trips every 2-3 months. I don’t buy large lots of jewelry or have
“pickers” each piece of jewelry has been hand picked by me because of it’s quality
and beauty, this ensures the uniqueness of each piece. The entire Frippery Vintage
collection has been thoughtfully curated with an eye towards what is being shown
on the runways today
Take some time and browse through the website there are some amazing,
truly unique pieces that I have found throughout my travels. There are
also some fun vintage photos of my family which you can check out here.
Please feel free to contact me either through the website or in person
at my boutique here in Huntsville, TX
