Rackage is a look inside recently-opened stores around town. Today, let's peek inside jewelry store Pippin's new Chelsea locale.

The beauty of petite jewelry store Pippin is that it's accessible and non-intimidating, as there are pieces here for every price range. The store, opened by Chelsea Flea Market vets in 2004, offers a wealth of vintage and antique baubles starting at $5. Husband-and-wife owners Steve and Rachel Cooper had originally set up shop below Delancey on the Lower East Side, but recently relocated to a larger space on 17th Street. Thankfully, the laid-back, browser-friendly feel of the store has remained intact despite the move. Stop in to find all types of jewelry, from simple silver and gold pieces to flashy Bakelite, as well as men's items like cuff links and tie pins, all at insanely good prices. More information on the store can be found on the TONY Blog and on Yelp.
