Brass Razoo Boutique

I am amazed at all the creativity that comes out of thrifting and recycling. Not only in the people who buy, but also the people who sell. Such is the case with Elise Vaughn, owner and designer of Brass Razoo Boutique in Nampa, Idaho. With the concept of redesigning and recreating recycled items, items are fashioned into high quality pieces. The jewelry designed by Elise, is made using bits and pieces of vintage, antique and contemporary pendants, chains, links, stones and beads. Each piece is one of a kind. Elise also redesigns some of the clothing she sells. Home decor pieces are carefully selected and redesigned by Elise and Kirsten Grove.

Their offerings are unique and eclectic, ranging from vintage to retro to modern. Pride is taken in providing high quality pieces at affordable prices. You can see their great sense of style not only in the items they fashion but also in the decor of the store.
