Tinsel Trading Co....

oh how I love you!! All your magical metal trims and sweet laces...makes a girl swoon at the thought of crossing your threshold!














Some of the treasures I was able to bring home with me. These are a beautiful heavy, metal trim.

Can't wait to get busy and use these antiques.

Oh, you are a lucky one. When I was there in October I was so overwhelmed I didn't bring one flower, nor trim home with me.... so sad, sigh.... I was just so completely overwhelmed by all the beauty and splendor.
