first USA Flying Tiger store review :: where fun, cute & colorful meet AFFORDABLE products you can’t resist

Flying Tiger opens in NYC :: a store and product review from Lauren McKinsey

one day while scrolling through Facebook i saw a post about a store named Flying Tiger that was set to open in NYC on May 16th! intrigued and not wanting to forget i snapped a quick screen shot and went on my way. a few days before my mom and i left for the National Stationery Show in NYC i pulled up the image and began my research on Flying Tiger!

it took me about two seconds to squeal with excitement that we would be arriving the day of their grand opening and would be able to visit the store during our NYC adventures! how perfect was that timing?

through my research i discovered that Flying Tiger is a Danish based store with the first Tiger store opening in Copenhagen in 1995.  they have over 429 stores across Europe and Japan and on May 16th they opened their very FIRST American store in New York’s Flatiron district.

90% of the products in their store are under $15 with most items priced $5 and below. i read somewhere that Flying Tiger is like Ikea meets the Dollar Store and they are right.

the store is filled with fun, colorful, creative and unique products. i would suggest making several “rounds” around the store so that you can take it all in.

on tuesday morning my mom and i headed out to Flying Tiger and it was love at first site! we walked through the doors and i’m pretty sure angels sang! we were greeted immediately by friendly and helpful staff who made our shopping experience even more amazing!

i asked if they minded if i took pictures in the store and documented my experience on the blog! they happily agreed!

throughout this post you will see photos from the store and photos i took when we arrived home of the products i purchased. if i wasn’t flying home with limited packing space i would have gone shopping crazy in there!
