I wasn’t going to do this, but I wanted to share with you guys the goodies I picked up in New York.
Stuff I picked up from a cute little shop that I’ve walked past a few times and have never noticed. The store was called, “Ink Pad”, which I found cute. It was a VERY tiny shop, but it was filled with stamps galore. There were so many to pick from and I finally found a panda stamp after searching through all the selections. It was hard to decide on an ink pad, as well, since there were so many good colors. As you can see from the picture, I used mine almost right away after I got home. The washi tape, I am so obsessed with this stuff, but they had a good bit to pick from in this huge glass jar. I will definitely go back to this store when I am in New York.
Then, I went to my Japanese bookstore that I love. I picked up some stickers, stationary, washi tape, and a little stamp set. The little stamps are probably my favorite thing I picked up from there. There is probably like twelve or so different animals all cute and stuff. I mainly went after it because of the panda in the set. It turned out to be a good choice.
I didn’t think I would find anything at Nintendo World, but I was quickly fooled. There were so many cute plush, I couldn’t decide! I don’t know anything about pokemon, but this little icecream guy is adorable. Then of course there is Goomba, couldn’t go wrong with him.
My last stop was Sanrio in Times Square and I had a field day in there. I got this cute tote bag that feels amazing and has a cute comic pattern on it along with some stationary and a car decal that is now on my Beetle. My boyfriend bought me the aqua loungefly wallet that I have been lusting over for awhile, plus a cute poster that may never see the light of day since I am terrible about hanging up things.
Hooray for stuff! I love shopping in NYC. Its probably one of my favorite things to do and I feel so lucky that it is such a short trip away, but then again I’m glad its far enough away that I can’t go all the time and spend all the monies.
