I happily went to ABC Carpet and Home and the Conran Shop (in ABC Home). I swear, I could spend hours in there...especially after discovering the stash of close-out priced Madeline Weinrib rugs and pillows in the basement. Also, I wish I hadn't eaten lunch right before I went because their restaurant, ABC Kitchen, looked awesome. Despite loving lots of things I saw in the store, I responsibly came out without any purchases.
Then I scooted over to Fish's Eddy and bought a set of aqua dish towels and gray and blue striped straws. Random, I know, but both were irresistibly cute and I was definitely itching to buy something.
I also got to pop into CB2, which was fun because I've never been into one of their stores before. While there, I bought an acrylic tray that I've been lusting over for a while. To me it's a needless necessity, but my husband could not wrap his head around why I purchased yet another tray for our house. I explained that I was really being thrifty by getting this tray instead of the more expensive Dabney Lee beauty that I really want! In any case, I like my new tray. Here it is keeping some magazines and books from getting out of hand...
I wish I'd had more time in the city, because I have looong list of stores to hit up. I need to get up there again soon and dedicate more time to shopping!
