This post is a guest blog my my best buddy, Ashe. You can follow her at her own blog, Dramatis Personae.
My classmate, Beth, has the rare luck and fortune to be living and working not too far from the warehouse of the Junk Gypsy Company. Junk Gypsy is the efforts of a family of Texan women (two daughters and their mother) with independent, where-the-road-takes-me spirits who love scouring flea markets and envisioning gypsy lives.
Gypsyville’s products are a mixture of gypsy, country, and rock n’ roll essences combined together to create one of a kind, eccentric fashion, art, and housewares for the junk gypsy shopper in us all. Favorite pieces of mine include the Rockstar Cowgirl Duvet cover made with gold taffeta and black flocked velvet. Paired with the right boudoir, it’s equal parts decadent and kitsch.
My favorite part of Gypsyville is the jewelry section, where you’ll find gorgeous pieces such as this gorgeous hodge podge necklace (shown with the Guadalupe double strand necklace and the Sugarbaby Cross necklace). This necklace is perfect with a beat up pair of jeans, cowboy boots, and the road to freedom.
