"Carolina Takes the City"

This weekend me and my friend Bonnie from South Carolina had a chance to visit the Big Apple!  No matter how often you go to NYC, there's always so much to see and do. 

So much great art.....




So much great food....





Even off of the food trucks.


And of course cool shops.  I feel in love with this little bath shop called Rain.  It had the most wonderful smelling bath salts and scents, but it also had great bath accessories which were all handmade by artisans in Africa.







I couldn't resist this paper mache' bowl, especially for $5.00.  SOLD!

Go figure, we walked outside of our hotel on Saturday and there was a huge street fair with vendors for blocks.  



My personal favorite was this vendor who had hand woven rugs in the most beautiful prints and colors.

This one was seriously tempting.....


Several hours and a lengthy, crowded and somewhat smelly subway ride later, we found ourselves in SoHo at some very well-known interior design shops.  





I'm dying for one of these brass pharmacy lights.  Certainly one will turn up on Craigslist, at Goodwill or  a consignment shop. 

Bonnie was salivating over this carved wooden scoop, but at almost $300 she decided against it.  Lol!


We made a quick stop in Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic shop.  You probably know her from her line at Target.  She basically created "shabby chic" style.


 

And last but not least, I fell in love with C.Wonder.  Think Lily Pulitzer with a younger, more modern twist. 





Love the nesting bowls on the bottom shelf.  They had me at Ikat.


Such cute colorful accessories.



They have a great website.  Check it out here:  C.Wonder website

It was a great trip, spent with a great friend. 



Now it's back to the grind....


More to come on my trip this week.
