Marketplace Fun Finds A Downtown Disney Hidden Gem

I am ALWAYS on the look out for bargains at Walt Disney World, and Marketplace Fun Finds at the Walt Disney World Downtown Disney Marketplace is a great place to find inexpensive souvenirs and special deals in one store!

Marketplace Fun Finds

Marketplace Fun Finds is located between Disney’s Pin Traders & Little MissMatched and isn’t a new store, but it is one that often get overlooked when people talk or visit the Downtown Disney Marketplace!

Whenever I need a little something, this is always the first place that I check since nothing in the store is over $25.00 which mean less temptation!

TrenD Report: All The Little Details

This week’s TrenD Report I was glad to find some new pieces, but I thought it would be a lot of fun to take a look at the little details of TrenD.

I really liked the new Aztec print dress, the watercolor Tink tank, and the long sleeve Minnie Mouse tissue shirt!

The iPhone 5 Bling Cases are a lot of fun! While I wasn’t a fan of the more stylized Princesses, they seem to work on these cases. And the ‘One Shoe Can Change Your Life’ case might be one of my new favorites and the next case that I buy!!!

I also chose a few of my favorite pieces of jewelry to share with you all, too!

Walking around TrenD, I also found the new Alice in Wonderland Tea Pot, cups, plates, and wine glasses. The new pattern is really playful and fun!

And while I am patiently waiting for the Summer LeSportsac Purses to arrive at TrenD, I found the HARVEYS Disney Patchwork purses to hold me over! They are ADORABLE in person! I was really worried that the mish mash of prints would really be too much, but I was really glad I was wrong!

TrenD Report: Time To Get Ready For Spring And Le Sportsac Giveaway

TrenD Report – April 9, 2013

After my last Hit and Miss TrenD Report, I was BEYOND excited to find so many great things at my favorite store just in time for my Birthday (Do you hear that dear Hubby?)!

It is definitely time to get ready for spring at TrenD, because there are a ton of great tanks available! I love that the tanks all have a little something that makes them so perfect for so many styles and occasions. I really love the fun and flirty floral details that are being used on these tanks that are perfect for spring and summer!

I was also super excited to see two new styles of Maxi Dresses, since the last few styles have sold out! They have stayed with their love of black and white in a fun layered Hidden Mickey Maxi Dress. And expanding on the popularity of the Bambi Maxi Dress, they have a new style that is so adorable and perfect for a sunny Sunday!

TrenD Report – March 12, 2013


It is time to start thinking about putting away your sweaters and getting ready for Spring in this week’s TrenD Report which is full of great new pieces!

I was really excited to find that there were two new maxi dresses at TrenD! The Bambi Maxi Dress is jersey materials that is super lightweight but not see through. And the black and white Mickey Maxi Dress has a really great drawstring waist detail and is a two layer dress that would be great for date night. I love the short dresses that I have, and I am looking forward to trying these dresses on soon.

TrenD Report – Purses, Purses, Purses, And More

TrenD Report – February 26, 2013

This week’s TrenD Report is one for all the purse lovers out there!!!

The LeSportsac Spring 2013 Holland Collection has arrived at TrenD! I was on the fence about this collection, because of the light and muted colors shown in pictures. However, when you see the bag in person the colors are vibrant and warm. I am really becoming a fan of this collection.

Also, they have updated their canvas bags and the new look is fun! Last year’s design had a Tory Burch cut out feel to them, but this year’s update has a more playful and bold feel. If you’re looking for a durable bag, you may want to consider these!

Villains Haveys bags have invaded the shelves of TrenD, and I was super excited about them before I saw them. I absolutely adore the concept of the bag, with a Princess on one side and her Nemesis on the other, yet in person the execution seems low end. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge Harveys fan, but these feel a little airbrushed to me. It was hard to get a great picture through the case, so I have included an image from their site.

TrenD Report – T-Shirts And More Galore

This week’s TrenD Report is full of some fun new T-shirts, jewelry, and fun Disney items to spruce up your home for 2013!


Don’t forget to take a look at last week’s TrenD Report, because I am still pretty much obsessed with the new purses they have out!

And while I am especially in love with the Harveys Mickey loves Minnie collection, I am chomping at the bit to see the Good vs Evil collection that will be released February 9th!!!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed window shopping with me!!!


TrenD Report – Dooney, Harveys, And New Shirts Oh My!

It’s time to get 2013’s TrenD Reports started off with a bang!

While there was a lot of great merchandise over the holidays, I am super excited to start seeing the spring merchandise arriving at TrenD!

If you have an iPhone 4/4s and are a fan of the Disney Dooney & Bourke purses you are in luck, because TrenD (and other shops throughout Walt Disney World) are now carrying the iPhone case. The case is available in the sketch pattern with a background of black and white. I really love the white, but the pattern shows up pretty well on the black background as well.

New Harveys bags have also made their way to the TrenD Report! The new Mickey and Minnie in Love bags feature rough sketches of Mickey and Minnie with red hearts, which is absolutely perfect for Valentine’s Day (HINT HINT DAVID CARAN)! This new design is soooooo much fun!!! I really love the playful design, and the red/white/blue/black color combination is perfect for the spring and summer. I honestly feel like you can’t go wrong with this bag! Great style, perfect colors, and once again the durable construction & warranty totally make buying one of the Harveys Bags a fun idea!

TrenD Report – November 20, 2012

While I have been a huge fan of TrenD for awhile, I really believe that they get it now. They are absolutely understanding their market, and what we as consumers are looking for.

It has been easy to see how the quality of merchandise has increased over the past year, but what I am more excited about is watching their buyers (like @Designerland71) really understand and give us what we want as consumers. We want quirky, fun, and stylish clothes and accessories that represent our love of Disney without being too cheesy!

I am also really excited about the new Le Sportsac It’s a Small World line that is featuring the United Kingdom! It is seriously my new obsession.

The shirts, skirts, bags, and accessories that make up this TrenD Report are some of my most favorite pieces, and I really hope that my husband saw those Le Sportsac bags!!!! LOL!!!

I hope that you enjoy window shopping with me today in my latest TrenD Report, and make sure you take a second to look back at some of my past visits to my favorite store at the Downtown Disney Marketplace!

TrenD Report – November 5, 2012

TrenD Report – November 5, 2012

Why yes, it is that time again! Time to go window shopping at my favorite store in Walt Disney World…TrenD!

While in past reports I have been really excited about the purses, you could easily say that I have a Disney Purse Problem, this time I am really excited about the clothing!

In the past TrenD clothes have been really about the trends and fads, but they seem to be coming to more of a middle ground in that the designs that they are featuring are more stylish than trendy which is a nice change for some of the pieces.

And you can find a large majority of these pieces scattered around Walt Disney World, I always find in my TrenD Reports its always fun to see how they mix the pieces from the park into more normal brands of clothing.

Also, I found that they are starting to make more Disney-fied skirts and dresses which is a great addition to the shirts that they offer!

TrenD Report – September 26, 2012

TrenD Report – September 26, 2012

So let’s call a spade a spade…I have been totally slacking on my TrenD Reports, but it’s time to fix that and get back to window shopping! It has been awhile, so let’s get this TrenD Report started!!!

It is a beautiful day. and I decided to head down to the Downtown Disney Marketplace in Evie the Equinox that @ChevyFlorida has provided me with for the week!

When I arrived at the Downtown Disney Marketplace, I was excited to see that it had some special decorations for the Fall up all over the place! I love how they decorate this area for the fall. Sure it’s over 80 outside, but I will take any “Fall” I can get down here in Orlando!

TrenD Report – Let Them Have Purses!

Let me start of this TrenD Report by saying…Hello, My name is Shelley and I am a purse addict.

Now that I have that out of the way, I can tell you that in this TrenD Report we are going to take a look at the purses of TrenD other than the Dooney and Bourke & Harvey’s purses.

I LOVE the variety of purses that are available now! If you are a Princess, Mickey, or Alice gal there is a purse for you!

I hope that you enjoy this look at all the purses that are out there for my fellow addicts!!!

TrenD Report – March 1, 2012

Starting this Month, every Friday I will feature a new TrenD Report or new merchandise line in or around the parks! I am really excited to start doing these on a more regular basis!!!

With that being said…Let’s get window shopping!!!

This week’s report shows all of the love that Minnie has been getting (which I am sooo excited about, since she is my favorite character)!!! Also, we’ll see some really neat retro ear hats and Evil Queen merch!

TrenD Report – February 6, 2012

The folks down at Downtown Disney Marketplace’s TrenD have been really busy stocking up the store with all sorts of new merchandise that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!

There are definitely a few pieces that I am going to have to go back for…
