Oh, The Places I've Been - Tai Pan - New Location

You know one of the places I go to all the
time -
Tai Pan Trading.

They have several here in Utah and a couple
in California.

The biggest and best is in Salt Lake City which is
about a 40 minute drive, but the store is
so great compared to the one at our mall
that I make the drive.

Imagine my surprise when I walked in the 
University Mall and found a huge new store,
recently opened, down by Macy's.  

I just wandered the store and drooled
and realized I had to share some images
of it with you.  I had actually planned a
post on it a few years ago, but never 
got around to it.

Ok, now this store is big enough
 to carry their furniture
and every other goody they have in Salt Lake.
I adore this piece - the color and detail.

Maybe it still isn't quite the
warehouse size 
of the Salt Lake store
but I could find plenty to interest me 
in this huge new store.

Lots of my dishes and tablescape items
come from Tai Pan.  I wish they would
sponsor my tablescapes!

They even have jewelry, scarves, purses and
clothing.  There is something for everyone 
from home to kitchen to yard to your closet
in this
wonderful store.

Now these silk script cabbages really caught
my eye.  I haven't seen anything
like these before.
I think I may have to get 
some of those beauties.

I wanted to draw a little stick figure
of me walking in the door!!

Ooh, look at the image of
Mount Timpanogos I captured
in the glass.  Cool!

I will be posting on 
Tablescaper's new party


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Such beautiful treasure in this store. I'm loving your new blog design!

  2. I would love to shop there! Looks like you could easily spend a day just looking...

  3. I would love this place too. So many goodies. And loving your new header, J.

  4. We don't have these stores here...I wish we did! Wow, they have such a variety of great things! I would go crazy over the dishes, too! :)


  5. Looks like a store I could spend some money in - I keep scrolling back to that robin's egg blue purse - nice!

  6. I could sure see myself loving this store. My kind of place for sure.
    Thanks for sharing a tad bit of this lovely place with us...

  7. It's probably a very good thing we don't have that store here ;)

  8. Sounds like a vacation destination spot to me. I'd never heard of Tai Pan, but I'll be on the lookout from now on. Great shopping! Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  9. I've never shopped at a Tai Pan, but have long been interested in doing just that. Looks like an amazing store! And your photo that captures the image of
    Mt. Timpanogos is awesome!

  10. Wow! Such a great store and one that I have never heard of! Thanks for sharing those great photos of all the goodies inside. Is that a purple Kitchen Aid mixer in your "About Me" box? I have a friend who adores purple and cooking and got one several years ago...I don't know if they are still available. The little stardust that follows the cursor on your site is so cute.

  11. I'll take 12 of each item, please. Just wrap it up and send it to....I'll inbox you my address! :-)

    What a great store! We don't have that here in the Midwest anywhere, so I guess online is our only access to it. I love the vast array of items! Those script cabbages are super, and it looks like they have a very nice selection of realistic silk florals! Just gorgeous stuff everywhere you look!!!

    That was cool that you caught the reflection of the mountains in the store windows!!!!!!!!!

  12. I'm trying very hard not to turn green :) This must be a wonderful store. I love those cabbages too!

  13. Now that is one store I would love to spend the day in! What lovely things indeed. I would get some of the cabbages before you need them and they don't have them anymore. they are wonderful. Thank you for taking us along. Sadly, I don't have one anywhere close! xo marlis

  14. what a wonderful place to explore! I see all kinds of possibilities.

  15. I SO wish we had Tai Pan here in the northeast. OR that we could order online! The things you find are always so beautiful. Loved the reflection of the gorgeous mountain! XO, Pinky

  16. Jacqueline,
    You went without me!!!!!!
    Girl, I could not believe I only spent 20 minutes in the Clearfield, Utah store when we were traveling back to Washington, maybe because Hubby was in the store with me!....hehehe! There is also one in Boise, Idaho, and I heard all about the new store when I was there, but didn't have time to go since it was such a quick trip. What amazes me is that they have different things in al the stores. I sa things in Clearfield that I did NOT see in Sandy, and the photos you posted, I didn't see some of those Items in EITHER of the two other stores...At least
    Boise is oinly 350 miles from me and I can drive there instead of to Utah just to go to Tai Pan Trading! LOL And I have close family that lives there....will be through Boise and back your way in June....I think you will need a helper....Can't wait to check this new store out when I am there!
    Hearts to you!

  17. I don't know this store, but I'd like to! The cabbage things are great and all those flowers! This reminds me of a store we have around here Hobby Lobby. I don't know if they are everywhere or not. How fun!

  18. This looks like an amazing place to shop! How fun. Blessings, Debie

  19. I love those cabbages too! I would love this place. Love the shot of the mountain reflection on glass!

  20. Hi, Jacqueline! I'm so glad you invited us along on your shopping trip! My favorite? the script cabbages! I agree... I have never seen anything like this before and I know they would help create a lovely vignette on my dining room table! I do hope we get to stop for lunch before heading back home.. I'm famished!! LOL

  21. I've heard of Tai Pan, but there are none near me and I've never been. Now I want to go more than ever.

    Great to have you be a part of "Oh, the PLACES I have been!"

  22. I've been intrigued by Tai Pan Trading when I've seen your decor and accessories in your tables! LOVE those cabbages! Thanks for taking me along :)
