ThingsTT Event + Haul | Local T&T Vendors & Businesses

2015-10-18 09.08.32

 ThingsTT held it’s event on Saturday October 17th at the JFK Auditorium UWI. These events are great for finding local businesses that are totally awesome, from custom, handmade jewelry, to exotic soaps and body care to creative clothes, shoes and accessories. These businesses are all about custom exotic Trini styles with flares of sophistication.

I loved attending this year and was absolutely in love with the businesses that took part. Needless to say, it was hard choosing what to buy, since I literally wanted to buy everything #thestrugglewasreal #lifeproblems

Here are some of the things that I picked up from the local vendors & I can’t wait to see them again at the next market event.
