Gloria Bryant and her youngest son, Billy Ray Bryant Jr., decided to team up to open a resale furniture store in the city of Katy, Gloria said.

Jazzy Junk Resale Shop opened on Franz Street in September 2015, but four months later, Billy Ray unexpectedly died, she said.

“It was me and my baby boy, Billy Ray,” she said. “I asked him if he wanted to open up a resale shop, do furniture and paint stuff. ... [It] was just something fun I was starting with my son, and then that happened.”

Gloria’s oldest son, Daniel Bryant, stepped up to help his mother run the store, they said. She goes to antique stores, flea markets and estate sales for their inventory, while he oversees the day-to-day operations of Jazzy Junk.

Together, the mother-son duo has cultivated a store—which has expanded three times—filled with antique and vintage accessories and furniture as well as purses and jewelry, Gloria and Daniel said.


Some furniture pieces they repaint, distress and resell, and often customers purchase items for their own craft projects, they said.

For example, many customers purchase metal bed springs, string lights through the wires and hang the finished project on a patio, Gloria said.

Old windows and frames are popular items to repurpose for pictures and wreaths, she added. One item for sale inside Jazzy Junk includes a table Daniel made from window frames and an old sewing machine base.

“I love when customers come in and say, ‘I bought this from you, and this is what I did to it,’ and they’ll show me photos of repurposing stuff,” Gloria said. “It’s just so fabulous. You just can’t imagine what some people do with some of this stuff.”

Daniel cited their friendly customer service and reasonable prices for their success over the past five years.

“We thank God every day, and we appreciate our customers,” Gloria added.
