Big news for those of us who are fans of the Trollbeads. Soon we will be able to purchase them in the Hudson Valley. The Poughkeepsie Galleria announce today through a press release that Trollbeads will be opening a store in the mall this spring.

If you aren't familiar with Trollbeads they are a Danish family-owned jewelry brand that started in 1976 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The family behind is very creative and imaginative as is evident in there designs. Trollbeads can be found in at least 50 countries world wide and until this announcement Hudson Valley Trollbead collectors had to travel to New York City, Connecticut or New Jersey to enjoy trolling through a store that carried the beads.

I was first introduced to Trollbeads in Skippack PA in 2008 in a little store known for it's artisan crafts. It was clear to me right away that out of all the bead jewelry you could wear and collect, Trollbeads were the most original in design. Each bead has a level of artisan-ship a cut above similar beads. Trollbeads come in gold and silver, there are beads, charms, braclets, rings and more. They use freshwater pearls, precious and semi precious stones plus Italian glass and leather.

“We are so excited to expand our presence in New York. Trollbeads is a artistically driven company who puts design and self-expression, above any commercialism. We look forward to becoming part of the Poughkeepsie Galleria community. I thank the community for welcoming Trollbeads and would like to cordially invite the community to join the Trollbeads Family," said James Santiago, Trollbeads North America Vice President.

When details form for the Grand Opening planned for April we will update you so you don't miss out on Trollbeads arrive to the Hudson Valley via the Poughkeepsie Galleria.
