New York 2013

A very belated post on highlights from my NYC trip
last May accompanied by my eldest daughter. We stayed in an apartment on the upper east side 
coincidentally rented from a woman I went to grade school 
with many, many years ago!
It added an extra meaning to this 4 day jaunt- when we open up and shift our routines 
there are many things to reveal & discover...
 Marimekko Store

 "Hungary Torn" concert at Carnegie Hall

 breakfast at "The Kitchenette"

 amazing store: "The Meadow" where we bought beautiful artisnal salts

 store I'd always wanted to visit: "The End of History"

 the Highline

 mid-day coffee break

 waited in line for cheap seats!

walking home 

amazing last day breakfast!

West Palm Beach Vintage Market

During the first week of my month long stay in Palm Beach, Florida, I attended the monthly West Palm Beach Vintage/Antiques Fair. There were well over 1,000 vendors present, in both indoor and outdoor locations. Quite massive indeed. I spent 4 hours there, checking out each and every seller's wares. I must say, most of the items were either not my thing (too 'granny'), too expensive (what's the fun in that), or too large to even consider lugging home to Canada.
Here are some photos of what caught my eye but were not practical to purchase, obviously. In my next post I will reveal the 2 minor but lovely treasures I DID end up purchasing.

 3 stools from the NY School of Art & Design circa 1950- $95. each

 the OLIVER Standard Visible Writer- $250.

 Cathrineholm at non-bargain prices

 Stunning Vintage Buttons at non-bargain prices

 Vintage Posters

 Rare 7 piece Salterini Set

 Interesting Swivel Patio Chairs

 Lots of Vintage Signage Letters

 Pair of Interesting Photo Lampshades

 Really loved the delicate lines of this single chair

Pair of Milo Baughman 'Z' Chairs @ $300./each
