The idea of a one stop shop featuring costumes, beads, hats, gifts, jewelry and bling began several years ago. Additionally, I was constantly seeing friends with incredible customizable gifts for discriminating shoppers try to find a way to show their talents to consumer. And a grand idea was born.....Here at South Tampa Trading Co., we feature the talents of many different Trading Partners, each with unique and fresh ideas. Many of the items you see here can be customized, simply ask our staff and they will gladly explain the options available for each item.Special orders are the backbone of this store. Custom costumes, crafted by talented seamstresses, featuring buttons, trim and bling unique to Tampa will set you apart from the rest. Sparkly tees, bags and hats are made to your special requests. Want a scoop neck? Trim fit? Different color? We can do that!Pre-order Beads for the Parade Season, and leave the storage to us! You can pick up your beads in January at either our South Tampa location, or at Stepp’s Floatyard located at 5116 Shadowlawn Avenue. Or host a Happy Hour for your Krewe or organization and we will deliver your beads to your January meeting! We hope you enjoy your shopping experience with us. Come on in, rack up a game of pool and stay awhile!
