to shop / hay mini market at moma

It’s about time HAY brought their mini market stateside. I rarely go to Soho and since the HAY mini market was launching on Monday at the MOMA store, I dropped by to press my luck on the preceding Friday when I was in the area. I was elated to find that the market was already set up. Some of it is also online, but I recommend stopping by the store if you can. As a recovering stationary addict, I only picked up the medium and large wooden hand (which I looked for at the Le Bon Marche mini market in Paris a few weeks ago to no avail).

to shop / baggu x friends

Baggu has gotten so popular since I went to my first sample sale 2+ years ago. I’m still processing what I got at the last sale after standing 1+ hour in the cold ill-dressed, so let’s talk about custom Baggu bags.

(1) Baggu for Gap. Custom duck bags. I think these are in-store only. When I saw them in the store last spring, I thought Gap was ripping off Baggu. I’m glad they weren’t!
(2) I <3 NY. Iconic logo. Perfect as a tourist gift.
(3) Baggu for J.Crew. Their first vertical stripe in candy pink. I wish this designs came in the baby size.
(4) Baggu for West Elm. The duck bag looks like a dirt magnet to me. The latex dipped bottom looks like an ideal situation for the germophobic.
(5) Baggu for J.Crew. Anchor print. So prepster.
