New York in March

I had the pleasure of visiting New York City for a very quick trip before heading to Washington D.C. and as usual, there was so much to see and do. Here are a few highlights from the day.

Chelsea Market was the perfect location to grab a coffee and get the day started.

Of course I had to visit my favourite kitchen store :  Fishs Eddy and admire all the original kitchenware.  You could spend hours in this store as it is jam packed with a variety of items.

Politics are everywhere!

Dishes and more dishes

We walked for miles.

There was a too short visit to Purl Soho.  The window display was eye catching as usual.

Do you see that orange bag?  I loved it but didn't end up buying it.  It is The Fringe Association Field Bag and this colour was made especially for Purl Soho.
I didn't take pictures inside the store as my time there was very short and I was mesmerized by all the colours, yarn and possibilities.  It's like I lose all coherent thought in that store, there are just so many things to look at.

I didn't end up buying much here as I knew I would be visiting two other yarn stores and wanted to save my money for future purchases.

We finished the day off with a dinner at Fabrick with my favourite lobster rolls:
Yes, that is candied bacon you see!

...and then a walk through Times Square.

It was a short but exhilarating stay in New York.  

Stay tuned for my next stop: Washington D.C. with a review of a wonderful yarn shop I visited.
