Kate's Paperie and Lunch at Fred's

One of my must-see stops in New York is always Kate's Paperie. Luckily, the subway goes down to Soho and one of the stops literally lets out right at the door of this delightful paper store. If you are a lover of all things paper, this store will overwhelm you. What I love so much about it is that they have the highest quality greeting cards (I am always buying good cards to keep on hand), photo albums (many different types in every color imaginable), custom services and much, much more. There is now only one location in Soho and a condensed location in the Time Warner Building...and on their website.

Paper by the pound..I have always been such a sucker for mixing and matching notes...
Ribbons galore....
Tons of wrapping paper and scrapbook accessories..



I have been very purse obsessed these days and I picked up this handmade cute card when I was there..for no reason other than I thought it was super cute. Little did I know that less than 24 hours later at our fabulous lunch at Fred's, all my girlfriends presented me with a Louis Vuitton large Neverfull bag!!! I was so overwhelmed, I started crying at the table. Oh Lord..it was just too much. I was so excited and thrilled to finally get a new purse!!!! Now, that card makes me laugh...I have a few more bags on the list...for the future!





Lunch was so great, the best french fries, yummy salads and endless diet coke refills. Afterwards, everyone disbursed in the drizzling rain to shop. We met up later in the evening before dinner at Buddakan. I am still waiting on some pics from friends..who seem to have lost their camera cords..hopefully tomorrow???
