    I got the mushrooms from the 32 Degrees North website http://www.vintage-ornaments.com. Also got some adorable carrots and little fruit.

    I heard them mention getting the mini mushrooms at 22 N Degrees but I couldn't find the website. I did find them at Blumchen: http://www.blumchen.com/vintage_florals_mushrooms.html but they were sold out of most everything. Does anyone know of any other resources?

    thank you very much, they did say where the mushrooms came form and it was 22......... and did not catch the rest... i will try Blumchen though, thanks again!

    I didn't get to see the episode, but In know they use a company called Blumchen in NY to get their trimmings sometimes. I've ordered from them before (mushrooms, heart boxes etc.). and they're great. Can't recall the email address, but if you Google them you can find them fairly easily.

    SAW THE WREATH TODAY AND DID NOT HEAR WHERE THEY FOUND THE MINI MUSHROOMS THAT THEY PUT ON IT. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHERE THEY FOUND THEM? THANK YOU
