Whimsical Wear in Ben Wheeler


Frilly Pepper, located across from Moore’s Store, is the newest business to join downtown Ben Wheeler.

Owner Kelli Cayenne Holmes is a professional artist relocated from Fort Worth. According to Holmes, 95 percent of the store’s merchandise is hand-made, up-cycled, renewed “and is all unique with a few cool finds thrown in.”

“Anything I don’t make, another small Texas artisan or small business does. Ben Wheeler has been trying to get us here for about three years,” she said.

Holmes describes Frilly Pepper as “a fusion of Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin and Tinker Bell: The soul of a gypsy, the heart of a hippie and the spirit of a fairy.”

“There are items for guys, gals and kiddos,” she added. “It’s fun, funky and whimsical.”

The store has a Facebook page and more information can be found at its website, FrillyPepper.com.
