A Few of Our Favorite Things: The Victorian Trading Company

It's always exciting when one of these catalogs arrives in the mail ...

... a sentiment shared by Victorian and vintage arts fans everywhere. Not only are the pages loaded with eye candy for antique lovers and romantics at heart, but the Victorian Trading Company seems to have something for everyone.

Candy molds, books, dresses and scarves, ornaments and decorations, even home furnishings, all inspired by the elegant styles of long ago.

The products offered are from a variety of vendors, from clothing and jewelry designers to unique mainstream products (such as the Little Big Book series). Mercury glass reproduction ornaments, tantalizing peppermint bark, knit flower scarves -- that's just a handful from the Christmas catalog (shamefully, I keep the back issues of these catalogs to re-read sometimes).

Getting swept away in visions of Victoriana is a good way to spend the afternoon. Enjoy the catalog with a cup of tea (and maybe a bite of peppermint bark for good measure). The company's offerings will have you drooling with envy in no time.
