Hello from NYC!!

Today is my last day in NYC....booo!!! its such a fantastic, crazy, happening place that I'm sure I want to emigrate and live here for a while....only another few years of college life left and then myself and himself can pack our bags!!

My suitcase....is packed to the brim with new crafty supplies!! After much searching I found an amazing store and I had to stop myself from buying so much! I spent over $165 BUT for that I got an amazing amount of stuff! Especially ribbon and tools that I had been drooling over on the web, but could not bring myself to pay the shipping or tax prices for!!

I also hit the flea markets.....and well, they're an experience!! Most irish fly to NYC and hit the outlets for 5 days straight! Honestly, I had zero interest in clothes shopping, all I wanted was to drink hot coffees in cool galleries and people watch! I did plenty of that and caught some great exhibitions! My big find, was a vintage 1950's hermes typewritter....my eyes lit up when I saw it and the lady selling it said I could have it for $100 as she knew it would go to a good home.....now wish me luck, I hope the nice people in JFK let me take it on the plane as hand luggage!! See pic below of similar model!

 ADORABLE!! I'm looking foward to typing my first letter!! I also did a bit of research on these and they are selling on the world wide web for $395!! Looks like I got myself a little bargain!!

The LuckyRainbow Etsy shop willl open again in a weeks time....after I get my hands on my new crafty stash!!!
