Colorful Ships, on Sixth Avenue

Pop up cards, nyc
Photo by myself, around 25th Street and Sixth Avenue, in Chelsea.

A fleet of tiny three-dimensional schooners in various bright colors were on display in Chelsea, Sunday afternoon.

There were ferris wheels and fancy buildings, too, all in intricate detail. I cannot imagine what holds each of these precious creations together. Each one is glued to a card and pops up when the card is opened.

Wayne, a street vendor, told me he has a table on 40th Street and Madison Avenue in Midtown every weekday. He was working this weekend because the weather was so nice. We've had so many snow days recently, and such delicate items can't be subjected to bad weather.

Wayne referred me to the pop up card website, where you can see all their products. Check out their other items, from Big Ben to merry-go-rounds to butterflies, at www.popupcardny.com.

Wayne, a street vendor, was kind enough to pose for me. He apologized, saying that he was not photogenic, but I disagree. Thank you Wayne!

We have a store nearby that sells these, Kitty. They are so magical! I've been giving them for birthdays.
