Buying in Bulk

Bag Seller, 14th Street
Photo by myself, on 14th Street, just west of Union Square.

Part of this street has somehow resisted gentrification. It's still spotty with discount stores and older buildings.

Today I took a walk around the city, while Mark worked.

Actually, I went on a little shopping spree, around the West Village walking up through Union Square to 23rd Street. There are tons of summer sales going on (woohoo!).

Happy Monday, everyone!

This photo is like the epitome of 14th street.
By the way, that's a pretty good Yoga deal they have advertised there too!

That picture reminds me I still have to get Aurora a new book bag for school.

Agreed, Daryl.

It's nuts over there with all the boutiques and such. I want to know who can afford such things?!

Hi Lily
yeah, that stretch is still iffy, isn't it? And I don't see it coming around anytime soon. For whatever reason (maybe because of the Salvation Army location) it is a terminally spotty area.

lol Tammy!
get on it, girl!
