My friend Miss LG introduced me to this great little Lower East Side market filled with vintage clothing, antique and handmade jewelry, homemade macarons, upcycled housewares and a misting booth to cool down after all that shopping (and maybe an impromptu ping-pong match at the center court?)
radiant salad or Cookie Crisp bowls upcycled from old records
my new friend, George Yzquierdo's jewelry collection is unrivaled. So many goodies, but I fell hardest for these Kenneth Jay Lane pieces. I want that dangly frog brooch!
and I spotted this horse pin for Mr Taurus
I wussed out and dodged the Thai Chili, opting instead for the yummers Red Velvet and Honey Butter Cream, a new flavor they were experimenting with that I couldn't stop raving over. Delish!
