Stays on a Speakeasy...
It happened yesterday. The came, they shopped, they saw, they enjoyed. I would LOVE to see pictures of what will get made using the lovely things I saw them buy!
A stream of consciousness summary of the day would sound something like this...
Busy city, frantic meet-up! Flustered, a few minutes late... Nervous energy!
Enthusiastic welcome, deep breaths and lively stroll. Looks like an office building... what floor do I push? Elevator ding... to the left? Deep gasp... what? It keeps going? Printed silks, what is pique? Oooh - Make a bag from this? Bias chiffon flounces, washed silk, knits and novelties and wools, oh my!
Another stroll - oh... we're still in the lobby? Maybe I should push the button, huh? Too busy talkin'! Turn right - past that little table? Oh, this sure is a Speakeasy, huh? Where do I begin? Explain the layout. Wow - spread that fabric out, and it tells a story! Oooh - this print! How should I use this one? What do you think? Oh, the polka dot splashes! Note: I wanted them myself, but knew she'd REALLY love it. Okay, fine... It will go home with her. Not me. Oooh! This double-faced wool would be just right for that pattern you brought along. Just love it.
Where to next?
Another quick stroll... Elevator up - boy, when you said "small"... you really weren't kidding! But oooh... what's that? The price is WHAT (in a good way)? And that matelasse... and that sorta artistic grid pattern...Oh yeah...
But where can I find my notions? Oh, let's go! This place is cool... What is this? And that? How do I use? Are these feathers? Yeah, I can see it in orange for me!
I'm tired. Let's eat. I have to go. The rest of you, enjoy. Wish I could have stayed to spend more time with you! Subways were STILL a delayed mess. But we all had fun!
