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.
