As the museum anticipates our reopening, we look forward to one of our favorite outdoor events: The Market at Brooklyn Museum. In the meantime, together with our marketplace partner, Brooklyn Pop-Up, we are highlighting several of our outdoor vendors in a Virtual Marketplace. Along with handcrafted products that are available for direct purchase, there are interviews with each of our highlighted vendors and photos to give more context to their work.

Brooklyn Museum Shop: Tell us about Perry Boyce, and its founder, Tracey Boyce.
Perry Boyce: I was gifted a gorgeous Indie candle from a rising brand that was valued at $60. Once lit in a room with the door closed, and no windows, not a single scent was smelled. At Perry Boyce, we firmly believe that top quality home goods and textiles should not be out of a modern professional's price range. That is why we have developed a lifestyle brand that offers products of high-calibre quality, while still being light on the pocket for you, me and our fellow consumers. Our current offering includes scented candles and room sprays, as well as bath salts and couple of funky kits- perfect for gifting.
Our products offer an on-trend take on everyday home products, offering clients the modern style of home living through collective themes and settings. The main purpose of our brand is to create affordable luxury home goods, while still maintaining that certain standard of quality that has been set by bigger and more expensive brands.
I’ve always had a strong desire to make luxury home items more affordable. I created Perry Boyce to do just that. I was tired of seeing what I deemed “insane” prices attached to beautiful home goods & gifts so I set to work designing a range of products that are unique, functional and of the highest quality. I’ve combined my passion for affordable street style and my understanding of business to bring you a unique line that I know you’ll love.
BKMS: How do you create your products, and why do you make them?
PB: All of my products are handmade by myself- melting, pouring, mixing and designed. For the scents, I try to keep it interesting. It's either I come up with a feeling that leads to a name or a name that leads to a feeling. Then, I think about which scents evoke those attributes for me. If I love the end product, then and only then will I release it to the world.
BKMS: What is important to you about your products?
PB: It's very important to me to have my customers experience the brand. Sure, its a candle and a spray, but more importantly it's about how you feel when you're using them. Self-care is and has always been a big inspiration to me and I want to be sure to make each and every one of my customers feel at peace when they shop with us.
BKMS: What can a customer expect from a Perry Boyce product?
PB: Customers can expect 100% satisfaction and pure experiences. When you shop with us, you become a part of the family, and as family we are always there for you.
BKMS: What is your connection to Brooklyn?
PB: I grew up in Flatbush, Brooklyn and I have firsthand seen the community here. Perry Boyce was born and bred in BK and it has and always will be the heart of the company.
