Street SmartsPosted: November 16, 2010
One of the things I love most about shopping in SOHO is all the street vendors selling such a variety of goods- jewelry, sunglasses, artwork and I’ve even seen a man selling finger puppets. Before I moved to New York, I would never have thought to buy something off the street other than at a Farmer’s Market- in Ohio, its just something you do not do. Even when I first moved to New York I was wary. It wasn’t until I was walking through SOHO with a born and raised New Yorker that I realized, its just what people do here. From then on, I have been on the lookout for great street finds. This weekend, I had a great one. While walking along the street on Sunday, my friend and I spotted a table full of sunglasses. I found a fabulous pair of black and pink glasses and my exact quote was “these sunglasses couldn’t be more me if they tried”. Now they are mine and for only $10! What a steal.
