As soon as I turned the corner onto 42nd Street and walked into the park, I started to hum... It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Ev'rywhere you go.... Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again. I can be super corny, but I love this season, the party invitations are coming in, I'm thinking about shopping for someone other than myself... so wonderful! No? Mmmm but the topic is Vintage Studio Manhattan. I walk up and down, row after row and peer into each little shop (A perfect, cloudy gray day, make the shops with their twinkling little goodies and warm glowing light, all the more like a Christmas Village). And Ohhhhh look at this, that's pretty... Oh, this is, yes this is Studio Manhattan! It's beautiful! Oh Mercy they have a working fireplace! I want to move in!
I introduce myself, "Hi, I'm Rhonda, PR-Social Media Manager for John Wind / Maximal Art". LOL I should get a badge, and flash it every time I say that. LOL .... or maybe not. It's funny to me, but... may be a tiny bit silly. *shrug*
"Oh you made it! I'm so glad you could stop by", co-owner Arzu shouts out.
I get a quick tour of the shop, and I have to talk myself out of buying absolutely everything (I did buy one little treasure for myself... mmm hmmm I guess I'm not quite in the Xmas spirit. Studio Manhattan clicked on the me me me switch. LOL).

Absolutely everything in the shop is being cooed over by..... everyone! Seriously, while I was standing there, it seemed like every person that walked by, stopped in and bought something. Thank God my train back to Philadelphia was departing in an hour or I would be there shopping, 'til this very minute. I flexed all my self control muscles and said good-bye (I found a certain solace in knowing that the Holiday shops are open until Jan. 2nd and I'll be back here in a few weeks).
|If you look closely you can see my reflection. LOL see how much joy accessories bring to me. SMH|
Give yourself a treat and visit the Holiday Shops at Bryant Part (and Vintage by Studio Manhattan).
