Yesterday was a full, full day of buying at the show, finding inspiration and gems at every turn. I have written this before, but it is so true, and it strikes me each time I walk a show–it is like finding the needle in a haystack.

But there are so many Seattle folk in New York right now it is fun to feel the excitement in the air here.
