SHOPPING………. literally on the Street

You name it………you want it………you can buy it……….on the streets of New York.

There are over 20,000 vendors………some legal, some not.

A virtual moveable feast……….lots of bagels, donuts, muffins.



CLICK ON ONE…………..

When FASHIONISTAS need a fix…….only a MOOD injection will do!

When the fabric urge strikes……….it is off to MOOD………for a “fix”.  Charge card in hand.  There are NO fabrics for $10 a yard…………but quite a few at $1000 and UP.  It doesn’t matter!  Gotta have em’.


CHANTILLY LACE…………just click on my face………….

MIA………a pattern maker……..designer and teacher……..SETS THE TRENDS that others follow.

JUDITH LEIBER and her HANDBAGS at the MAD Museum

Judith Lieber has been in the handbag industry for sixth five years…..starting out in Budapest before moving to New York.


Many of her handbags…….fascinating and luxurious…………are encrusted with Swarovski crystals.  She began her company in 1964 and designed her last handbag in 2004.

Her handbags cost about $5000………the older ones sell for a lot more.

My friend Sue………visiting from Detroit enjoying the exhibition.

OCULUS Shopping Mall at the World Trade Center

The OCULUS………a new shopping mall in the Wall Street Area………..over 100 stores and restaurants……..global brands…….350,000 square feet in the World Trade Center……all designed by Santiago Calatrava.

The white marble floor looks like a gigantic ice skatimg rink.

What I enjoyed the most………JOE and the JUICE up on the mezzanine.

 

 

Hoppin’ down the BUNNY TRAIL

Some of my EASTER DESIGNS at the Papyrus Greeting Card Stores……….bunnies……chicks………eggs and cards.

DOORS to Stores and Houses in the WEST VILLAGE

Shops, bookstores, Bigelow Pharmacy, Caffe Reggio and the Stonewall Inn are a few of my favorite haunts………they have been here for decades…..and so have I.

The STONEWALL INN was where the GAY LIBERATION began in NYC.  The police raided ………….started to arrest young trannys……throwing them into a paddy wagon……..and for the first time in NYC the gays fought back.  I was there with friends and we rioted all night in the street and  set the trannys free.  The cops were outnumbered………..and the GAY LIBERATION MOVEMENT began in America.

J.K.Rowling’s Yacht is FOR SALE

The asking price is $19.2 million………but if you’re short on pocket change you can rent it for $136,000 a week.

It has four bedroom and sleeps 10 people.

She bought it from Johnny Depp [maybe he will buy it back].

It does not have a heliport so you can not arrive in your helicopter.

 It also does NOT have a pool.
