It was such a beautiful day yesterday, and I was lucky to spend part of it a a street fair in Greenwich Village. Crafts, handmade jewelry, art, vintage clothing, music and food--an endless array of things to browse and buy. Of course I spent the majority of my time taking pictures, but I did buy a couple of things--one of which is a necklace crocheted out of fine silver. Love.
Everywhere I looked, I saw my reflection staring back at me. The woman in this booth at the fair actually yelled at me as I was composing this shot so it came out blurry. Needless to say I did not buy anything from her :)
This guy had a lot of cool vintage stuff at his booth. Hmmm, I didn't buy anything from him either--just took this picture of my reflection.
My friend Lisa was supposed to join me, but she had to bail out at the last minute. When I am with her, the cash flies out of my bag much more easily. Everything looks better and there are so many thing that I just have to have, if you know what I mean. It doesn't help that she is the queen of impulse buying--I can't even tell you how much stuff she bought at this fair last year. She's a good little shopper. But alas, I went by myself this year the the Hub stayed home and hung out with Willow and then met me later in the day for dinner.
As I walked around, I couldn't help but notice this bright reflection in a window on 7th Avenue. So much going on behind me here...
I stopped a fair bit of pedestrian traffic while I took these photos. And of course they were all looking at me like, "what is that crazy woman taking a picture of?" Eh, whatever, I am used to the looks by now.
At one point it started to rain, so I ducked into this cute restaurant on Bleecker Street for a glass of wine. This photo is part of my "Year of Restaurant Selfies" project on fickr. I've been taking my photo in the restroom mirror of every bar and restaurant I've been in since by last birthday in December. I've missed a couple, but it's a pretty complete set. I feel like there should be more photos...I need to get out more :)
What did you do this weekend? I hope it was a good one. Linking up today with Sundays In My City and Your Sunday Best.
