fripperer (n.)
One who deals in old things vamped up. Now we know..."fripperies" doesn't mean fancy gewgaws or frivolous finery but instead things that have been refurbished. That means that if you spend a Saturday antiquing or going through racks of dresses at vintage clothing stores, you can tell your friends you're at the fripperers.
