New York, New York

My daughter treated me to a bus ride up to New York city for a weekend visit. We stayed with a really cute and gracious couple who live there, which was nice because they knew the area and could help us find great ways to spend our time. We spent much of Saturday shopping flea markets.
We had so much fun! It was part of a perfect day in the big city.

We went to one market that's housed in an old parking garage. Oh there were so many things that I would have loved to take home, but I resisted.We also shopped at the Hell's Kitchen flea market. I did find a little something there that I couldn't resist. This cute little suitcase.Isn't it the perfect topper for my stack?

Aren't daughters wonderful!!! To just spend time with them is great but to spend time doing something you love is the BEST!

Glad you had a great time. I love your suitcases. I found one this summer at a yard sale for under a dollar, I think, and hope to add more. Such great storage potential for crafting odds and ends.

What a fun trip! I bet those NYC flea markets were the best!

I think you're gonna have to start up another stack of cute suitcases in another room. You've hit the ceiling!
