We got up early and had breakfast then DH went off to flight school. Sigh, I was on my own. I knew I needed to look up when things were open so I didn't waste my time going somewhere that wasn't open. Good thing too as some of the things I wanted to do are not open on Mondays. So first up was to go to get on the bus and go into the city. Armed with my trusty map off I went.
First place to go? The Garment district. Lots of fun fabric and trim shops. I found a shop called So Good and bought some twill tape to use for my labels. The guy told me a dollar a yard but I told her I found it online for 0.29 per yard so he undercut that and I got 30 yards!!
Please forgive the quality of the pics I am still trying to figure out DH's camera (and mourning the loss of my own). I found my way to Sew Elegant and bought some Dupioni silk pink, cross woven with green. What I hear you asking, why? Well a LONG time ago when I went to Paris I bought some beautiful velvet green cross woven with pink! I envisioned a dress with the velvet for the bodice and the silk for the skirt.
I had been to MJ Trimming before but it was a nice eye candy stop again. So much color.
I am now starving so I stopped at Ben's Deli. I had corned beef and I must say the coleslaw was amazing! Now off to Macy's and some shopping.
I rode a wooden escalator at Macy's. I had never seen one before, have you? Then I found Fiestaware as far as the eye could see!
Look at those square plates and mugs, Tervis tumblers and those new rectangular bakers. LOVE IT!!
I didn't buy anything there though. I left and ended up in the Foot Locker and got myself a pair of Zumba shoes. I turned around and saw some Converse high tops in Texas orange! I texted DS to see if he was interested and asked if they have a size 13. They did so now he has a pair of orange Texas shoes too. Check out those cute ribbon laces on the white shoes.
I spied an Old Navy and thought I would stop in there. So glad I did. I got a few cute things.
The green, gray and white are cami's, the Halloween one is a t shirt, the black one has ruffles and is like a tee shirt material and the aqua if a cotton sweater.
I am back in the hotel and am I ever tired! I think we will just eat in DH will stop on his was back to the hotel. I'm not that hungry even though I only ate half of my sandwich and no bread! So I hope you have enjoyed the trip so far. Tomorrow the American Folk Museum and City Quilter.
