Trip to New York Part 2

Day 2 in New York City—-gorgeous day!

Today I planned to meet an old friend in New York, and we were meeting in the Garment District . . . West 37th, West 39th, etc.  Right in the “Fashion District”!

The best store, in my opinion, is M & J Trims—-big store, ALL TRIMS!  Sorry to shout, but gosh!

Did some window shopping before going in, while waiting for my friend, and I saw ribbons:

and trims:

glitzy stuff:

and buttons:

Whatta store!!  This time I knew the routine and went straight to the button section and started pulling out some boxes.  These are what I bought—-they’re all new, and again, tending toward fashion or glitz . . . and fun.

After my friend and I checked out our purchases, we headed toward Pret a Manger on 36th & 5th for a quick lunch.  Yum.

Then we really needed a good sitdown to catch up on news so we went to Bryant Park adjacent to the New York Public Library.

There’s a pretty little grill to eat inside

but the weather was absolutely perfect and we sat outside.  Wouldn’t you know? there was an ice cream kiosk, too . . .

Can you find my friend and me in this photo?

well, that’s a little joke—it’s a poster.

Beautiful day, beautiful tulips–

Join me tomorrow for Part 3 of my trip to New York City . . .


You already know me---I'm in your book club. I've been in your book club in Wisconsin, in New York, in Missouri, in Connecticut. Now I'm in your book club in Pennsylvania. I love books! (I also collect buttons!) I'm looking forward to having conversations about books with people just like you----who also love books and want to talk about them. Send me an email: booksandbooks (at) me about a book you are reading. (or buttons of interest)
