We started the day by missing the bus. Got tired of waiting and climbed the stairs to the elevated "subway". Only one stop from Bloomingdales. We walked in and all the designers had small outlets. Jimmy Choo wanted $198.00 to $243 for a keychain. We spoke to the clerk about off shore goods as the keychains were from Viet Nam. Beautiful wallets but they start at $128.00. A Coach coin purse was $56.00 - I'm not sure they are worth that much. We were given a spritz of eau de toilette by the store clerk. It was on special for $98.00. Colleen bought a Lady Gaga lipstick for an outrageous price but we are on holidays so we are supposed to spend money. Floor walkers everywhere - I didn't know they still had floor walkers. The Ladies Lounge (bathroom to the rest of the world) could be used for a reception anywhere else. We got pictures.
We walked on to Central Park and saw the Plaza Hotel and the horse drawn carriages that take you round the park. Next it was off down 5th Avenue and check out all the famous name brands. We had lunch at the Trump Tower and then went to Tiffany's - enough bling to blind you.
Peggy had mapped out a quilt store so we went and while we were there we bought material and Colleen and I convinced her to make us pillows with taxicabs, subway maps and the Statue of Liberty on them.
