inspired // New York's TINSEL TRADING CO

As well as providing lots of shopping opportunities my recent trip to NY was a visual feast.  Inspiration for our christmas creative was fuelled by the colourful ribbons, glitter, trims and sparkly ornaments at the Tinsel Trading Company in west 37th Street NY. This treasure chest of adornments & decorations has been in the one family for 4 generations.  The quantity and pristine quality of the stock, much of it unopened since its original production decades ago was a sight to behold.  It's a Martha Stewart favourite and a regular drop in for some of New Yorks top fashion designers.

put your jingle bells on

I know that we are not yet in November and some of you will feel that late October is just way too early to think about Christmas shopping .... soooo, we are doing the thinking for you. Pop into our first Christmas show at the St Kilda Town Hall in a few weeks times and start ticking of the present list ... then call past the Malvern Town Hall in early December and finish the lot. There are lots of newies joining the show and we will preview them here in the coming weeks.

Look out for our ad in the current issue of Frankie magazine.  (If you'd like a pile of these cute postcards to share with friends please email your name and address to and we'll post them out).
