I saw these fun Pink Pens with an attached Flamingo Tassel at the check out counter when I was buying a selection of random cheap stuff (knit gloves, steak knives, scented candles) at a 99 Cents Store on Delancey Street. If you were feeling ‘crafty,’ you could totally take that chain off and attach the tassel to a purse, or make a super cool necklace out of it as well.
It had been raining in Manhattan for three days straight when we got a slight reprieve on Saturday evening. As I exited the subway at the corner of Spring and Lafayette Streets in Soho, I could not miss this rather oversized Bright Pink Shopping Bag, which had been discarded on the sidewalk, irresponsibly short of the garbage bin. No one likes a Litterbug.
Mostly, looking at this impossibly compelling bag made me want to locate the Great Buy! 99 Cent store, and do some bargain shopping. Instead, I carried on to my evening’s destination of various NYCxDesign Parties, where I had a ton of fun and got drunk for free!
Note: It has come to my attention that this bag came from an Arizona Iced Tea Promotional Pop Up Shop, which was happening on Nearby Crosby Street from May 16th to May 21st.
