It’s a wonderful town…


Did I tell you I have an exhibition in New York? Ok, it’s not my exhibition, but there is a piece of my work in it. It’s ‘Night Scented Stock’ at Marianne Boesky on E64th street – check out that artist list! I’m in awe. It runs until the 22nd of this month if you’d like to see it.

I’m an extra bit excited because we’re going to New York just to see the exhibition – is that crazy? Is it normal to travel 3400 miles to see something you already own?

I feel pretty ok about spending all that money though because we haven’t had a holiday since 2006 and if you average it out it’s not so bad. We’re going to be there for a few days, so what I want to ask you lovely, thrifty people is: Where are the best thrift shops in New York? If there happen to be any near some major landmarks that would be handy because we only have four days and my Rough Guide already has more bookmarks than I have time! It’s going to take some careful planning.

So, let me know where to go, and I’ll report back on my findings!



  1. Well, thats very exciting! No tips for thrifty NYC sadly, but enjoy!!

  2. LOVE NYC!!! I have been there multiple times, but I only live 5 hours away. I never vist thrift stores when I am there. I have done street fairs and flea markets which are always great. BUT I also follow a blog who thrifts in NYC all the time, check it out and have a great time!
