If you're looking for trinkets with personality -

I've come across earrings made out of glass bottles (the Coca-Cola ones are fantastic), bags made out of recycled truck tires, wallets made out of gaffer's tape and old newspapers, plates, pillows, shoes, even vintage umbrellas! I always get asked where I get my things, especially because they are unique and Tom's extensive knowledge in craft and design allow me to tell stories about everything I've bought from there. These trinkets, accessories - all have a story. The best kind of gifts, and the best way to stand out in the crowd. Sit and talk to Tom about the clothing, and you'll leave there knowing so much more about fabrics and stitching. Fun store! Once you walk in you can't leave empty handed! You can find things from $3 all the way up to the thousands, but keep looking.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
