Cute stuff. I like the nostalgia of it.

Ginnie said...

Sometimes I feel so out of it, DB. I've never heard of Wendy Addison or her creations. Now I won't forget her, thanks to you. I wonder what YOU chose to take home with you? :)

CC said...

Another street to explore......
just what I needed, I don't have enough to do. ;-)

Why I love your blog.

Now that looks like my type of hangout! Every time I look at these pictures I see something else I want! :) Very cool little details! Hey, virtual shopping is much less expensive than being there, my husband will love this new form of shopping lol

Superb. Looks like a medieval sale.. :)

Marilyn said...

Yes, I did think it needed glitter on my little house. I may add that later. Love all this glittery stuff.
Thanks!

lisa said...

It looks chaotic and yet logical, if you know what I mean. Great photos.

Greetings from London.

Vagabonde said...

Lovely feminine crafts. Is that what they are selling? Thread, ornaments, decorations for crafters? Looks intriguing.

FP said...

Your blog is interesting. I had the great pleasure of visiting him.
Best wishes

Oh, lucky, lucky you. A trip to Tinsel Trading Co is on my bucket list. Seriously. Were you in New York or did they have a show in CA with Wendy?

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Ruth,
I love their font choices. I think that's what gives this booth the nostalgic feeling.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Ginnie,
You are not out of it, far from it. I had never heard of Wendy Addison either. I met her and her daughter at the San Francisco Gift Show at the convention center a few weeks ago. I thought their booth was wonderful.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear CC,
Of course you will make time :) When you do, I would love to hear about your visit.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear tchesney,
Of course you could order online...

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Visioplanet Photographer,
Thank you. Your photo of the damselfly is fantastic!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Marilyn,
Great! The glass glitter that Tinsel Trading Company is extra shiny and gives it that vintage feeling.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear lisa,
These photos are from their booth at a Gift Show. I hope to visit their store in New York one day.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Kala,
It totally was!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Cuban,
Logical chaos - I like that!

Dutchbaby said...

Cher lorilaire,
Oui, très jolie!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear margie,
I bet there are some Somerset contributors who are customers of Tinsel Trading Company. Did you see our mutual friend's Robin Laws' recent article?

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Vagabonde,
The Tinsel Trading Company began as a metallic thread and trims, but now they offer many craft supplies.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear FP,
Thank you for your visit and welcome to Dutchbaby!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Relyn,
My sister and I went to the San Francisco Gift Show at the Moscone Convention Center. The Tinsel Trading Company booth was one of our favorites. Unfortunately, the lighting was very poor so I had to set my ISO at a ridiculously high level.

susanna said...

Wait a sec...Where is this? Not in New York City? So what did you buy?

susanna said...

Oh wait...you answered my question in one of the other comments...Tinsel Trading was showing in San Francisco. Shoulda read all the comments first!

rochambeau said...

Susan said...

Nice! What did you buy, and what will you do with it?

Dutchbaby said...

Dear susanna,
Unfortunately, since this was a wholesale show, they did not have a cash & carry option. I love the vintage alphabet ribbon (first photo) and the oversized glass glitter letters (second photo). I would probably use them for an event.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Constance,
Of course you already know about TTC and the Addisons and you do them proud with your creations!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Susan,
I wasn't able to buy anything that day, but I've bookmarked this store on my computer and in my mind. I would probably use some of their glitter products for a wedding or bat mitzvah.
