last day in NY....for now
the handmade section of the gift fair ended wednesday. It's amazing how quickly we can all dismantle our booths! The rest of the show ran until noon on thursday so we went back and walked through to check out who else was there. I placed a couple of orders from some great ribbon vendors, can't wait to use them in our CityBird necklaces.
We did some more supply shopping and boy are we ready to get into the studio!!
After working up an appetite we got on the subway and hit the lower east side and shared a reuben at Katz deli. Then, to work that off we walked back up to the garment district stopping at lots of neat shops along the way. It started to rain a bit on the way back so we stopped at a park and took a rest on a bench under some trees. I could've taken a nice nap there. The rain felt good as it was so sticky and I hadn't stopped sweating all day! When we got back to the hotel we took a quick snooze then went to dinner at our favorite place Pizza Suprema then walked around times square and stopped at an ice cream truck for a chocolate cone.
