Pacing myself...

In a city of this size...
 Manhattan from the Staten Island Ferry

 you can be sure there are plenty of opportunities to shop...
and so while I was in NYC for 2 weeks, I shopped!!!!

But in order to keep to my budget,
I had to
pace myself!!!

There was the clothing....

Forever 21 (huge!) 

 and the food... 

NYC

 a vegan's paradise...

I visited the MOMA today!

 But that's not really the kind of shopping I am talking about!!!!


ART SUPPLIES!!!

That's my game!

There was the mesmerizing Dick Blick!!!

Heaven...art supplies at Dick Blick!

 So many choices!!!
