Tropical Trends' sunny shopkeepers fill the shelves of their cheery environs with adornments for body and home alike. Freshen interior breezes with the fragrant tendrils of hand-dipped Wild Berry incense, which uncurls 40 aromas including vanilla, sandalwood, and root beer (30 sticks for $5.50). Scented WoodWick candles ($10–$12) mimic the crackles and pops of a roaring bonfire when burned, turning innocent anecdotes into instant ghost stories. Customers can also spruce up bodies with Tropical Trends' fashions and accessories—adorning digits with elegant sterling-silver rings in sizes 5–14 ($12–$22) and bodies with breezy exotic-print skirts and dresses ($18–$26) that flutter in colorful anticipation of spring breezes and summer tornado chasing.
