Weekend Recap: The Highlights
I know this recap is a bit late, but I wanted to share with you some of the fun that was had this weekend!
So I headed out Friday morning to White Plains to check it out. To be perfectly honest I was expecting to leave empty handed. Being so close to Manhattan I’m constantly going in for sample sales, etc and they are always a bust.
Boy was I in for a shock when I entered the showroom and it was packed to the brim with rolls and rolls and fabric. There was actually a specific pattern I was looking for and I happened to find in just in the wrong color way.
I did find some lovely things to come home with me.
I’ve been on a huge bird kick lately and these fabrics did not disappoint. I found the pattern in two color-ways so I snapped them up quickly. Each piece which had about 3 yards each came up to…… $5 each!
The next fabric that caught my eye was:
I’m loving the blue, whites and cream and again only $5 and this time it was 4 yards!
I also had my eyes on fabric for a client’s master bedroom. The client loves Victornia style and wanted something romantic and warm.
This pattern fit the bill and again only $5 for 4 yards! Plus the lovely staff made me aware that it was wrinkle free fabric. No need for ironing!
Making one wrong turn in the showroom turned into a dream come true when I saw a room filled with wallpaper!
I have no idea where I’m going to use these. I think I’ll save them for clients, but I walked home with:
3 triple rolls that came in a $15 a piece!!!!!
Plus 3 doubles of this lovely emerald green pattern at $10 a roll:
One other highlight of this weekend was getting to met up with Liz a fellow blogger who I also know pretty well, because she is one of my sister’s besties.
Said sissy (Danay) had her birthday party at Water Taxi Beach on Saturday. If you live in NY you will now that raining most of the evening! Lucky for us they had tents!
Here is shot of me and Liz:
Doesn’t she look stylish in her cute shorts, tee, Anthro necklace and Marc Jacobs clutch! I told you guys you would want 5 mins in her closet to get your hands on everything.
Plus a token sissy shot. Don’t you worry Mom and Dad also made the party. The enjoyed the dance floor quite a bit, but I don’t have those shots yet.
So there you go another weekend recap! Hope you had a great one as well. I’m counting down the seconds till the next one.
