Always A New Adventure

It's nice to live in an area where you've grown up and spent your entire life. My family has been in Tampa for five generations.  Everywhere I go I seem to run into a friend, former classmate or relative. I think that's why I've always enjoyed participating in the local art shows and outdoor markets.

For years I've done the Tampa outdoor Hyde Park Market on the first Sunday of each month. I enjoyed spending the days at the markets with my daughter selling original art and unique hand made gifts. While you'd never make a fortune there, it was more about the experience connecting face to face with my customers and developing a local following.

Recently I decided to sell my original art and gifts in a uniquely wonderful shop here in Tampa, "The South Tampa Trading Company". It's a store like no other in this area that carries a wide variety of specialty items, gifts, art, home decor with a huge selection of Gasparilla themed accessories and beads.

Here's a short video of  a few of my collections in the shop. I'm always adding new items with a
many new fall and holiday items coming soon!

So if you live in the Tampa area stop by South Tampa Trading Company  and check out marvelous selection of incredible customizable gifts for discriminating shoppers. At STTC they feature the talents of many different trading partners, each with unique and fresh ideas.
