GLAM LIVING...NEW STORE OPENING NYCTrunkt: Discover Independent Design
Sure we all love the major stores filled with mass produced goodness but let's not forget the little guys that are just as great and would rather die than have their stuff fill a GAP window.
Ok,for those of you that know me,know me as a label loving kind of girl used to expensive high end merchandise but I also love interesting,one of a kind type items,that are trendy and stylish.
Just opening up in the trendy NYC neighborhood of Tribeca is a store promising to bring you things you will not see in every other store in the world!
