The South Tampa Trading Company located at 1916 S. Dale Mabry is your one stop shop for Gasparilla swag, whether it’s for home, the kids or you! We recently selected some of our favorite things, but honestly…there are so many items to choose from , you’ll need to block out an hour or two of your day just to decide! We love this business because it is basically home to 30+ local small businesses and makers. By shopping here, you are supporting a local business which is a WIN-WIN!
South Tampa Trading Co. has the sweetest clothing items for the littlest ones. We loved these two pieces for the babies!
Perhaps the easiest way to get your child into pirate mode is to simply add a hat or hair accessory! There are plenty of head pieces to choose from, even some warm hats if the temperatures take a plunge on parade day!
These handmade shirts are not only beautiful, they are great heirloom pieces to pass down to future generations of kids to wear on parade day!
There are racks and racks of tank tops, shirts and sweaters to choose from, but if you really want to show your pirate spirit, we loved these handmade corsets and tops…and the cigar box purses!
A simple scarf is one of our favorite ways to dress on parade day…and throughout the year! Don’t be afraid to play with colors! The bright scarves will definitely help you stand out from the crowd! You can even tie one around your waist or your child’s waist as a pirate belt!
You’ll want to carve out some time to check out all of the jewelry displays! The good news is, a majority of the pieces are not only beautiful, but affordable! We love the hat and feathered clips for your hair. So cute!
Pour your coffee or tea in one of the stainless steel mugs and head to the parade route early to take advantage of great pre-parade activities like the Bicycle & Pedestrian Safety Rodeo and the Preschooler’s Stroll on the day of the Children’s Gasparilla Extravaganza!
Speaking of great swag, we recently appeared on Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend to share some great DIY ideas for Gasparilla day from our Beauty & Style contributor Michelle Bremer of RunwayTranslator.com. Check it out now:
