I tweeted my fave NYC bloggers for recommendations on design stores to visit and ended up visiting almost all of them! I braved the snow and headed out to Soho where I checked out the prettiness of Purl Soho and the sleek masculinity of Aero. Of course, I popped into theMoMA Store which is across the street from my favourite NYC eatery, Balthazar. I stopped in too at CB2 and Muji and Pearl River Mart, always fun places to browse. And before my feet froze off, I managed to hike out to TriBeCa and get a peek at Moomah (I was missing my Chloe and wanted to see little kiddies about!) and colourful Just Scandinavian.
What did I pick up along my travels? Not too much except...
...this "Paris In A Bag" from Muji (to match the New York in a bag I already have)
...this cute little plate from Fishs Eddy (perfect for pocket change)
...a supercute origami alphabet book from Muji. Each page can be folded into a paper animal. I think I'd like to make them all and display them in Chloe's room in shadowboxes or on shelves. Good thing they had illustrated instructions otherwise I would never have known how to put together this ostrich! He can't quite stand on his own yet so I've rested him on this tiny paper accordian I bought at Pearl River Mart for Chloe.
...and this vintagey tin circus ride from Pearl River. Its for Chloe... but its really for me :)
