Sunday, last morning in NYC, afternoon flight to Boise, Idaho via Salt Lake City. Time to meet my granddaughter, but first, a trip to the Chelsea market to look for another pair of vintage eyeglass frames. Last year, I bought a pair of round, plastic frames, tortoise colored on the front with tubular, black temples and I get more compliments on them than any other eyewear I’ve ever owned. One of a kinds. Unfortunately, the vintage eyeglass vendor is not there, replaced by someone selling vinyl records–a noble pursuit for sure, but not helpful to me– but I did find someone selling resin eyeglass frames, lightweight and two-toned, that I liked better than anything I saw at Warby Parker. I’ll get lenses installed when I return to Shanghai.
The Chelsea Market is a favorite spot to eat and shop, but this spot, ‘artists & Fleas” in the far back corner of the market (10th Avenue & 15th Street) is the best collection of unique clothes, jewelry and accessories in the whole place. — with Melinda Hoyt at Chelsea Market.
