How it all started...

When Vickie Roan founded The Menagerie in 1978 it truly was a happy accident. One Christmas while she was furniture shopping at the wholesale trade center in Dallas, she ended up meeting and spending the day with two wholesale jewelers, hanging beads in their showroom. At the end of the day, they gave her two yellow gold baby bead necklaces for her daughters, Amy and Jenny (then 7 and 1 year old). When she returned home her friends simply had to have those baby bead necklaces. She quickly realized that she could go to market, buy jewelry, bring back items and sell them in order to earn Christmas money. The Menagerie was born. That Christmas she earned $55,000 in less than two months. The rest is history. With her eye for personal shopping and understanding of her customers’ personal taste, Mrs. Roan quickly grew from selling jewelry on her dining room table (literally!) to owning West Austin’s destination carriage shop for fine jewelry.

Then, in 1998 when her oldest daughter was celebrating her engagement and marriage, Mrs. Roan decided to expand the store’s small gift offering to include a tabletop bridal registry. In that year she moved from her 900 square foot store into The Menagerie’s current space in Jefferson Square in Central Austin. Today, with over 1,600 square feet of space, the store includes fine jewelry, home accessories, and luxury gifts from the world’s most luxurious vendors. Our founding vision remains clear: we provide timeless goods in a beautiful environment that is a delight to visit, and we pride ourselves on celebrating life!
