One of the best spots in town for reasonably-priced jewelry is also a great stop for home furnishings. The owners of Pippin Vintage Jewelry, Chelsea Flea Market vets Steve and Rachel Cooper, acquired a freestanding ranch house hidden behind a storefront at 112 West 17th Street more than a year ago and turned it into a housewares shop called Our House. When the duo moved their jewelry boutique from the Lower East Side to that Chelsea storefront directly in front of Our House last May, they renamed Our House Pippin Home. The shop, stocked with antique furniture, tabletop items, and other brick-a-brac, has the same charming, slightly-cluttered feel as the jewelry store. Pippin Home has been around for more than a year, but the store's flown pretty far under the radar. We're not the type to keep these things secret, though.
