BETH’S FARM KITCHEN

Beth’s Farm Kitchen…………Mon Wed Fri and Sat at the Union Square Farmers Market for sensationally delicious……. Jellys, Jams, Marmalade and Lemon Curd.

The Strawberry Rhubarb Jam has been their best seller since 1981………and it is still my favorite………….

Thought I must admit to having a craving for everything they make with raspberries!

You can sample all of them………more than 20 different recipes.

The star salesman it this cute guy.  You cannot walk away without at lease three jars……of………..your old favorites or some new ones.

MICHAEL KORS buys JIMMY CHOO Shoes

Michael needed some new shoes to go with his bags.

For 1.5 BILLION….he how has glitz and Jimmy just got richer.

Two very cool dudes!

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!


SASCHA a star at the NYC BALLET [at the Met Opera House] is a regular……..and LARRY who is known as the KING of FLEA…….sets up his stall every Sunday……..rain or shine!

The only thing I bought last Sunday was one MICKEY MOUSE…and one MINNIE MOUSE.

PETAL PLANTS and FLOWERS

Every Sunday morning you can find me behind the Museum of Natural History

where local farmers set up their stands.

My friends always ask me “where do you get all those plants and flowers in your garden”.

I get them from my friend Al [at my local farmers market]………. every Sunday morning].

CLICK ON THE Cosmos………..

KENNETH JAY LANE died last night at age 85

Kenneth moved the New York from Detroit while still a teenager …….determined to carve out a career in the fashion world….and he did!

The public first became aware of him through QVC where he sold his FABULOUS FAKES.……….and made millions doing so.



Ivanka Trump, Joan Rivers and tens of thousands of other women adored Kenneth and his jewelry…………which was so fabulous it was impossible to tell if his pieces was real or fake.

All of societys stars and super stars loved his jewelry………”FABULOUS FAKES” is what he called his jelewry and himself……….with a wink of the eye.!


His opulent apartment reflected his opulent lifestyle.

Kenneth was invited to every party in Europe…..Morocco……..lending his presence and flair to the gathering.  Always on a jet ………off  to British and European royalty and to Indian maharanis.

 I only met him once when he hung out with Andy Warhol at Max’s Kansas City…….comparing “notes” as we were both exiles from Detroit.

BERGDORF GOODMAN mannequin is knocked out cold!

I was passing by the store on Fifth Avenue……peeked in thru the door………and there she was……….sprawled out in the middle of the floor.

Hmmmmmmmm…..!!!!!
