Tinsel Trading Company

While in New York City, my friend Jen suggested we head to Tinsel Trading Company in the heart of the Fashion District.


And so we did.


This place is absolutely mind-boggling!


There were vintage bits of all sorts of things tucked into cabinets...


...antique linens and candlesticks too.


But mostly ribbon...


...and more ribbon...


...and spools of gold cording...


...and more spools of more wonderful threads.


And vintage tassels...


...and yards of cording...


...and more tassels, oh my!


I loved these vintage ribbons with place names.


And a wall of embroidered patches.




My niece Sylvie was shopping for silk flowers for her hair when she met a lovely hat designer, Ashley Burson, who was looking for inspiration for her hats. Ashley runs a place called "The Hatterie...for crazy people who like hats." Check it out. Really fun!


I just loved this place and wanted to move in.
