I am getting to those NYC photos ...

Geez, where does the time fly to? Seems I am stuck in work mode ~ fun work I might add! I have been busy getting Holiday Treasures ready for the shop. I stopped to take photos & my camera beeped at me 'No Memory'. So, I am now taking some time out to Post a few NYC pics. My purpose there was twofold. My daughter, Kami Jo, lives in Manhattan. She is an Editor for ABC Soaps in Depth Magazine. Her job is to hang out with the cast & then write about them! She called me a few weeks back and told me that if I was ever coming to see her in NYC, I had better make it fast. She is being transfered to Los Angeles at the end of October! So, there is reason #1. The second reason, of course what ELSE do you do in Manhattan, was shopping. We went straight to 'Hells Kitchen Flea Market'. Wow! There is just so many vendors. My feeties gave out way before we finished looking! I managed to get a few photos here, but sadly most places have signs posted 'NO PHOTOS'. Oh well, over the course of the next few days, I will just Post some fun pictures from just hanging with the kids. Oh, my daughter also just married! Her new husband Adam, is an Asst. Producer on Broadway. Still sorting through all those pictures as well!

Textiles & Hats ~ I am always on the look out for great vintage fabrics.

I purchased many antique and vintage papers. I use them in my paper crafts.

Ooh, I just LOVE wild cat prints!

These antique shops are just across the street from 'Hells Kitchen Flea Market'. All of these are posted 'NO PHOTOS'. Some of these shops are filled with amazing pieces & they all have gorgeous displays. New York Vintage is very upscale. It's worth stopping by if you get the chance!

The kids are nearby, I hear "Are we done yet?" and "I'm starving!" Brings back old memories from vacations past. "OK" I said. "Lets do lunch!" Family fun & more NYC photos to follow ...


  1. Hi Rochele,
    Looks like you had a blast! I love those vintage papers you found and all the other treasures...

    If you get a chance, stop by my Blog for a visit and say hi! I just put up a new post...
    Have a great weekend,

  2. Rochele, your photos & description of your shopping in NYC just made me drool!!!! I have not been there in at least 15 years!!!! You made me want to go back. I just went to Round Top Antique Fair in south central Texas. Did a few posts of that. It would be fun to compare style & stuff. Have a great day & I look forward to seeing more photo. Lucky you to have your kids there. Shop Momma Shop.
