tinsel trading co.

Glitter and flowers!!! That can only mean one thing.................


Tinsel Trading Company!!! I was reminded of it this morning when I saw something very glittery on another blog.. if you have never had the pleasure of visiting this amazing shop in New York City, you are so missing out! Add it to your things to do list immediately... this shop is so freaking amazing, to say the least!!! A trip to New York is not complete unless you have stopped in to take a peek.....

Hundreds and hundreds of beautiful flower embellishments, some vintage and delicate, some are new but seriously amazing. The flowers here are so unique and beautiful. And there are so many to choose from, any color of the rainbow, as you can see above! :)

Aside from flowers, there are millions of other little trinkets to envelop yourself in... I could get lost in this shop for hours, taking everything in...

A snapshop of Tinsel Trading during the holidays.... can it get any prettier??? Everything is dusted with glitter, little beautiful things littering the shelves. I am just feeling so nostalgic today, wishing so much I was spending the day bumming around New York on a blustery and cloudy day. A girl can wish, can't she??? Hmmm... maybe I am feeling an urge to visit a chilly NYC since it is supposed to be 104 degrees in San Diego today!!!!!!! Ugh. The pool is beckoning me.....

* Leave me a comment to join in on the "vacation" fun!!!!

The one place I would love to go!! These picures make me crazy. If you like Tinsel Trading you should try and get to VV Rouleaux in London sometime. I lose my mind in that place, too!

That store looks awesome, I can see why you love it. All those colorful flowers and knick knacks it's like a crafters dream world.

Oh, I will have to add this place to my list the next time I hit the big apple! It looks a fantastic place to spend hours in! "smiles" You have a beautiful blog and little Andrew is just precious! Loved the pictures of him at the zoo!

Holly, When I visited New York, I did not know about Tinsel Trading. What a pity, I will probably never go again. My four sisters and I, went their for a week. We had the time of our lives. We were at the Today show and they took footage of us. What a great time we had, but I don't think we will go again. Anyway I love the photos you posted about such a fun place to shop.

Thank you for visiting my mantel post. That was a fun idea. I love this blogging.

Take care, Jeanne

I've been there! I just happened upon it (like your blog) and it was the highlight of my trip. I know I'm going to like your blog and will go back and read it more closely.

NYC is a long ways away, but I'd go just to visit Tinsel Trading. I've heard so much about it and your photos make it look so enticing!
