Back home
Hello everyone! I've missed you. What a whirlwind of a week we had in New York at the Stationery Show. Got back late last night (so this is just a quicky post!) It was so exciting to meet so many of my online and industry friends - I was amazed how many people I knew. And all the fabulous cards and paper products - I could go on and on(and I might in the next few days!) New York was, well, New York! I have to say that this was the most frenetic I've ever seen the city - more people than I ever remember seeing before. It's always such a culture shock to wake up in Manhattan on the first day of a New York trip - but I find my groove pretty quickly. We started our first morning with breakfast in Greenwich Village and then found ourselves surrounded by market stalls as far as the eye could see. Most of the narrow streets of the village were closed to traffic and vendors displayed their art, crafts and antiques. One of the best street markets I've ever been to. There was music and food, the sun was shining and the people watching was great. We had fun and Doug took lots of pictures . . . .

Managed to pick up one of these cute street fair posters for the studio!




Just loved this tiny window display(above) in an apartment window - and this cute little vintage enamel dish which I got for just $4.


We seem to have an awful lot of pictures of me Tweeting on street corners ;-)

This quilt is made of a patchwork of vintage bark cloth. The vendor said that it used to be a sales man's sample but I'm not so sure of that - it was very impressive!
I'll have lots more pictures and details for you in the next couple of days(just need to catch up on my sleep!)

Glad to hear you had a great NYC show! My coworkers were also at that show (the Pierre Belvedere booths) as well as the notebooks/agendas I helped design! I only wish I had been there on the showroom floor too, I would have loved to have met you! Can't wait to see more pics of your NYC trip. We will make our NYC trip in August. : )

It's surreal to see you wandering the same Greenwich Village Streets we were wandering through just the week before. Sad to have missed the street fair, though, as we were moseying out to Astoria to visit our son's apartment and explore that area on Saturday. Sounds like you had a wonderful time!
