My 25 Ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS

It was a fun day of shopping………….5th Avenue……….a flea market………a silver emporium………and a crafts show.  [I am exhauested].  But I did make 5 purchases…………gifts for family…….friends………and my stockbroker!

The TAXIDERMY DEER HEAD………..was NOT among my purchases.

However…………..this Courtly Check Moose Head at MacKenzie Childs did tempt me…………..at $15,000 [cough]………….but it was the $695 delivery charge that killed the purchase.

Another ART BUYING BINGE this week

 

I don’t have another inch of space on my walls………but I went ART SHOPPING anyway. No,  I did not  bid on the Leonardo Da Vince “Portrait of Christ”….I was a bit short  of cash……….$450 million to be exact!

I did score a Bonnard….a Charon……….some English Chromolithographs……an antique map and a few other prints.

FACES at the FLEA………renamed the GRAND BAZAAR!

The local FLEA has gotten a lot “grander”……and is now called….the Columbus Avenue GRAND BAZAAR.  How bizarre is that!
