shopping in ny

i'm not a huge shopper
but this trip, with the help from my friend ludgera
we managed to help the ny economy
one of my favorite stores is macy's (above)
they always have the nicest clothes and
there is usually a sale
a few books stores
kinokuniya, where i saw a display of
hand crafted tarot cards by tyran grillo
and barnes and noble has the
best arts and craft section
of course we spent a few hours in the ink pad
which is the smallest store i've seen and
has the biggest selection of rubber stamps
and related supplies
(stuff was hanging from the ceiling)
and the best staff
thanks to anna, dante and v
for hosting lynne perrella
eventually we wondered downtown to soho to purl
above, which was a unique little knitting boutique
and purl patchwork selling funky fabrics
from japan to england
just a few doors apart on sullivan st.

since our hotel was right in the garment district
we managed to go through half the stores!!
my favorite, m&j trimmings
lots of sewing accessories, ribbons,
buttons, trims, beads, etc....
above , tinsel trading company
which supplied a variety of
vintage and new,
rare and reproduction
trim, ribbon, paper, gift ware
home decor and more....
eventually we ran out of money

NY is so much fun..when you go back check out the Young Designers Market in Soho on Mulberry St.
I've been shopping there for years.. only open on Sat but way cool stuff at really reasonable $$!
