NY NOW via Instagram

Yesterday I woke up at 630 in the morning and didn’t go to be until after 1 am, but I was so inspired and excited about all the amazing things I saw earlier in the day that I had trouble falling asleep.  I spent the day in NYC at the gift fair scoping out new items/brands to bring into the shop this fall and fell in love with so many things.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know what items I’m crazy about, but if you don’t…enjoy (and go find me on Instagram now!).

On our way to the Etsy party at the Ace Hotel, we spotted this amazing vintage shop called Gargoyles packed to the brim with leather and metal trunks, trophy cups, etc.  Crazy thing is, the shop used to be in Philly!  We briefly spoke to the owner and she said she’d love to move back someday.  PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE move back!  This shop was seriously amazing.  If only I wasn’t so rushed and had more time to look around – but getting a cocktail was pretty high on the priority list at the point in the day…

At the Ace, parked ourselves right in front of the champagne…

Afterwards we had dinner at a beautiful restaurant in Chelsea called Salinas.  When we walked in, I immediately noticed the strong smell of flowers.  They were everywhere…

Salinas is a Spanish restaurant serving mostly tapas – with a few options for entrees.  We decided to order a bunch of small plates and my favorites were the anchovies, pork belly, grilled octopus and dessert: blanco y negro…

After a quick visit to Billy’s Bakery after dinner for some treats for home, we jumped on a bus and headed back to Philly.  It was an insanely long day, but so much fun!!
