Just over a week ago, I made my annual trip to New York City, home of the National Stationery Show, to seek out new trends, search out new "Favorite Finds" for my customers and, of course, see new Broadway shows and enjoy fabulous new dining experiences! New York certainly has it all and I LOVE it!
Here are just a few quick snapshots of this year's trip, highlights which included spending time with my mom and sister, shopping in Soho, dinner with my good friends Stacey & Joe (also in NY at the same time), seeing "Catch Me if You Can" on Broadway (FAbulous!!), and attending the National Stationery Show! I think this was my 7th consecutive year of attendance.
One highlight for certain was getting our picture up on one of biggest billboards in Times Square, compliments of a brilliant marketing campaign by American Eagle Outfitters. All you have to do is buy one thing (could be a pair of socks only if you like) and show your receipt and then you have the option to have your picture taken and within 5 minutes your mug, along with a personalized message of your choice, is up in Times Square not once by 3 times within a 15 minute time span (talk about 15 minutes of fame)...very fun and if we adults got such a kick out of this I can only imagine how much fun it would be for kids.
