The weather was beautiful ... until it wasn't! (It rained cats and dogs yesterday in New York City.) But we made full use of our time together. I led a wonderful, excited artist through some of the best stores in the district, and we had a blast.
Serendipitously, I also happened to run into a Speakeasy map purchaser, who was in one of the stores I recommended at the same time we were, and happened to mention something to a staff member that made me think she might be there very person I had interacted with via email... and she was!!! Such a crazy moment! It was so lovely to meet her, too!
As always, I was blown away by the beauty of the things we saw and happened upon along the way, and, as always, my heart aches for what I did not buy.
So, if you're wondering when to go, the answer is "NOW"!
