First stop was CJS Sales, where Stephney found a lovely Judith Lieber clutch bag and a few Czech beads.

After that fun, we stopped at York Beads to visit (another word for shopping) with Perry Bookstein. Imagine my surprise when Maureen Chin tapped me on the elbow! She was visiting her family and just happened to be shopping in York, as well.

Stepheny had fun shopping for beads that she can't get in England. Having just placed a wholesale order, I didn't get much but we both walked out with some of the lovely aged stripe beads...

...and a new dvd with 3 patterns by Kerrie Slade that use beads from York Beads.

On Wednesday, we went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the Jewels by JAR exhibit. If you are in NYC, run--do not walk-- to see this exhibit. Unfortunately, you can't take photos of the jewelry and the one catalogue that you really want is $1400. Well, it is 2 volumes. The pieces in this exhibit are so stunning that our visit to Tiffany's on Friday was terrible disappointing in comparison.
I did take a few photos of the Met's annual Christmas tree with the baroque angels and nativity figures. Too bad, you couldn't get any closer.
Our bead adventure continued on the weekend when we drove up to the Corning Museum of Glass, but that story is for another day. Now I must get back to packing.
