Wherefore art thou fripperie?

It's Shakespeare, from The Tempest, if you're wondering. And i'd used "fripperie" on Etsy before ever hearing it from Trinculo - i'd discovered the term years ago, on a tangent to some research on medieval guilds. Since it relates to trim and decoration and used clothing, it seemed perfect for lots of the things i'm fond of, and i shamelessly appropriated it. Wouldn't you want to be a fripperer?

A short, sweet intro, and i must be off to check on my increasingly theoretical day job...
