New York City
Okay let me just start out saying the five years I’ve waited and wanted so badly to visit Tinsel Trading Company was so WORTH it!!! This store did not disappoint me one bit, every single square inch of this place is filled with amazing vintage and gorgeous gift items. The story of how the store came to be is a wonderful story and if you are as interested in knowing as I was chatting away with Marcia Ceppos… you can read all about it HERE. It’s a great story of how her grandfather got started.
Once we left Tinsel Trading Company we headed out for a great sight seeing walking tour mapped out for us by Marcia. She basically had us walk one huge square that once finished had us right back to Penn Station so we could head back to Tinton Falls, NJ.
We saw the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square and the gorgeous New York Public Library. One thing that really amazed me is how much greenery is in city. There are trees, shrubs and flowers all around. It really is quite beautiful. And while in Times Square Carolyn and I at this amazing lobster roll while sitting in Times Square people watching.
And my “Traveling Apron” is having a wonderful journey… Tinsel Trading Company, Red Bank NJ Transit and Time Square… can you see me and Carolyn standing together in the middle photo on the giant screen outside Aeropostale? Tomorrow… it’s all about Ranger University! Cannot wait to be there. Will tell you all about it tomorrow.
