The Big Apple - Day Two

Thursday morning I headed to the Fashion District to visit some fabric stores.  The first one I stopped at was Paron's.  There was another lady from Pattern Review there and we visited a bit.  We both had Metro Fabrics on our list so walked over there together.    Kashi was as nice as everyone says!  He shipped the fabrics I bought from him and Paron's home for me.  Next up was B&J fabrics for coat lining.   It was fun just walking around browsing in the different shops.

Shop at Bryant Park
At lunch time, I headed over to Bryant Park and shopped and ate.  There are lots of little kiosks set up for the Christmas season with fun things to see and buy.  I bought a few stocking stuffers.

Hot chocolate at Jacques

When Leigh Anne came home from work, we headed out for a great evening.  She showed me around their neighborhood and we stopped for hot chocolate at one of their favorite little shops.   I am on the prowl for a new winter coat so we looked in some stores but didn't find the perfect one.  But we did find more boots!!!!

 After dinner we headed to Rockefeller center to see the tree and decorations.  The tree is huge and so beautiful and there are decorations everywhere.

 There was also a light show on the Saks Fifth Avenue building - Bubbles and Snowflakes.  I loved walking by all the store windows decorated for the holidays.  It was a great evening.

Leigh Anne did her magic and found us a cab for the trip home.  Doug is working on a big project and didn't get home until long after I was in bed:)

A great day - and only one blister:)

Oh, this sounds like SO MUCH FUN. :o) Sounds like something out of a movie to those of us here in PO DUNK, USA! I hope you're taking some pictures INSIDE the fabric stores, too -- ha!
