Hi End, Low End… New York October 17, 2012
Well, We just wrapped up another day, walking the streets of Manhattan. I’ve taken my partner in crime in all directions. Yesterday he opted out of shopping at the Salvation Army Thrift store.
I had heard that this shop had a great selection, thanks to Mr. Goodwill Hunting, on the Nate Burkas show. I thought “what the heck!”. I thought I might find a few interesting “smalls” that I could stuff into my suitcase.
They had these pictures on the wall for entertainment purposes, as you walked up to the third floor of this old warehouse. Once there, I was sad to find that nothing could save this place but a good fire!
Well, today we saw the other side of New York, strolling the upper East side. This is where you find every high-end designer, known to mankind. Did I stop in at Ralph Lauren? Negative! I’m too practical, I suppose. Even if I had money to burn, I just can’t see spending $1200 on a pair of slacks.
You’ll be happy to know, that I did find a purse cart (!) at the corner of East 62nd and Madison Avenue with really nice purses! The gentleman was kind enough to give me a small discount, taking the last $48 in cash that I had to spare. But look at the pretty leather purse I snagged!
We’ll soon be heading To one of my favorite restaurants here, to sit at the counter for dinner.
Besides, it’s my birthday! Thank you, God, for my health and good fortune and the wonderful people in my life! Bless you all!
