I saw this in a thrift store recently, it was wooden and obviously homemade, I thought it was sweet. Tonight I helped set up an event in the basement of a hotel, it was for a company that I work for sometimes. I got there early in the afternoon, I didn't know how long we would be there so I didn't bring anything to eat, I assumed we would take a break if we were there for long. At one point the hotel staff came down to bring us a menu in case we wanted to order room service, my eyes got really wide because by then it was so late, I was beginning to get delirious. My boss picked up the menu, glanced at it and then tossed it down, I realized then that there was not going to be any food at all. I spoke up and said that I was interested in eating dinner, my words just floated away unanswered. We just went on working in silence, I mean besides the music on the radio. My friend spoke up a little while later. She suggested that we get food delivered from a place she knew nearby, our boss said that it would insult the hotel to order from somewhere else. I just kept working and could not stop thinking about food, I stared blankly into space just crazed over the fact that we weren't taking a break. So here I am at 11 pm finally eating dinner. I just don't understand people who are not interested in eating. Walking to the train after I finally got to leave I passed a woman on the sidewalk who was jogging backwards. It was really weird, I felt like a starving character in a David Lynch movie.

new in the shop, a 1960's black tapestry coat with flared sleeves, it's really pretty amazing. also in other news I got some new shoes!

They are made by Jeffrey Campbell and I love them but they are really uncomfortable. I wore them to taco bell yesterday with my friend Matt and it was just around the corner but I was glad to take them off when I got home. Matt's friends band recently got sponsored by taco bell and they received like $1000 in gift certificates so he gave some to Matt. I went out of curiosity so I didn't eat any of the food, I haven't been in one of those in maybe 15 years, not even on road trips. The food is so cheap but it looks pretty gnarly when you look around at what everyone is eating, the purple tile floors don't help either. I also stepped in someones cinnamon chewing gum while we were there, I was trying to scrape it off with a plastic straw while he stood at the register ordering some chalupas, it was surreal. When we left Matt remarked that it felt like we just left a health clinic, I concurred. So yeah about my shoes, I am going to take them somewhere to get stretched, hopefully they will fit better then.

new in the shop, a 70's diamond print sweater and some amazing fabric. The fabric is cotton but is has a print that mimics the look of knit.
This was from this mornings attempt at taking etsy photos. Jason usually perches by the window to watch whats going on outside, if he sees a dog walk by he has to come and tell me about it like it is the most dramatic thing that ever happened. My camera is on a self timer to take 5 photos in a row, by the last one you can see his disappointment in the fact that I don't take the matter more seriously.

80's modern new in the shop today!

new in the shop today!

My aunt gave me these vintage books yesterday, I really like the illustrations. It's strange, there are no front or back pages in any of them that say who illustrated them or when they were published. It's a mystery.
