There are some fabulous bargains in New York City. I had a perfect manicure with hand massage for $8.50. Two delicious egg-and-cheese-on-a-bagel sandwiches for under $9. Happy hour wine, two-for-one!
And the thrifting can be amazing as well. Last post I wrote about finding Donald J. Pliner nylon and leather boots for under $20. Here they are:
|The pic is blown out so you can see the details. Squared toes are not exactly on-trend,
but that bothers me not one bit. They’re lined in leather, and so comfortable too.
|A big-city discovery: fingerless gloves work a charm when trying to
negotiate the cell phone/camera on the street!
Real estate is not one of the city’s bargains, however. We looked at four apartments today, for between $550,000 and $670,000. A couple were totally charming, but could fit into a corner of our Florida condo! And laundry? Around the corner. To paraphrase the character in Jaws (see quote #35), “We’re going to need more money.”
For our anniversary “dinner”, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and crusty bread at The Ear Inn. And a celebratory glass of wine too, of course. Twelve years of marriage, twenty-one years of togetherness and it really does keep getting better. ☺

Happy Monday to you all and thanks for coming by,
