TROPPO BELLA means extraordinarily beautiful in Italian; so beautiful, that it is almost too beautful. Curated by Elizabeth Thankful Shannon, a fashion stylist, fashion historian, and antiques expert, Troppo Bella offers the finest , often rare, vintage and antiques at affordable prices.

ABOUT THE CURATOR~
Elizabeth procured a degree in Fashion Design and Fashion History in Italy. She is the granddaughter of a fashion-savvy Italian seamstress, whose Connecticut factory sewed the collections for the top New York designers from the 1950's - 1980's. Her other grandmother was a gold heiress, who grew up in a Gatsbyesque San Francisco mansion, dripping in fine jewels, the latest fashions, and monograms. Through both of these diametrically opposed matriarchs, she developed a strong sense of style, and an impeccable eye for detail and design.

VINTAGE~
Mad about fashion and accessories, Elizabeth selects items based on uniqueness of line, pattern, and the quality of materials and construction, inspecting each item for flaws, mending seams, searching online for antique and vintage buttons and beads, replacing any missing findings, and restoring them to their natural splendor. A lover of all eras, she hunts for select designer fashions via fashionista friends or celebs, finagling exclusives on estates, photographing and listing each item in great detail, hoping to find the perfect loving home for each unique piece.

JEWELRY~
Elizabeth offers vintage jewelry, as well as handmade items. She began making jewelry at age 12, starting with Swarovski crystals & safety pin brooches. By age 15, she was cutting, soldering and hammering sterling, brass, and copper, and bezeling gemstones. Her jewelry is almost always one of a kind in color, pattern, stone, or bead, selection, and she welcomes the challenge of creating a unique statement piece in your preferred colors and stones, to match any outfit, or any occasion.

HOME DECOR/FURNITURE~
As a former antiques & art appraiser in New Orleans, Elizabeth selects her home decor offerings for their rarity, retro appeal, craftsmanship, and timelessness. She also loves to upcycle items, bringing them into the 21st century, encrusting items with shells, decoupaging, painting, distressing, beading ordinary things to create objet d'arts, block printing, pouring organic soy candles into vintage containers, and so much more...

PHOTOGRAPHY~
Please note that all photography will now only only be available in my NEW ETSY PHOTOGRAPHY SHOP: ETSphotography (Please bear with me as I upload to this site, but feel free to favorite it. I currently have 25 photos available on there in various sizes.)

UPCYCLED & HANDMADE:
Hand-made jewelry, up-cycled clothing, accessories, and decor, face masks, suede scrunchies, and original art will all be available in my TroppoBellaHandMade Etsy shop. (Coming soon...)

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

Returns and exchange details
Please note that, due to the fact that my items have no tags, and can be used and returned, and due to the high cost of shipping (which is offered free on most items), I cannot accept returns, however if you would like to make an exchange due to a legitimate reason, and are willing to pay the shipping, I am happy to accommodate you.

Everything is as listed, in excellent condition, and my reviews speak for themselves. Thanks!
