Last year when we went it was pouring rain but thankfully this year it was a beautiful cool morning. I got there a little early and walked across the street to grab a juice and to sit and wait until it opened. Thankfully the wait was that long and it only took me roughly 45 minutes to get there. I did get a little side tracked along the way but it was all good.
Of course I coudn’t leave the Strand without buying something so I picked up this cute Kate Spade tote bag. I was a little sad that they didn’t have the blue owl tote bag that I really wanted but I will chekc online and perhaps order one. I also picked up the white owl pencil case which isn’t included in this picture and only realize that now. It will make an appearance in a future post. The only book I bought there was City Doodles New York for Michael along with two owl pencils.
I bought three books there. They were Over You by Amy Reed, Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Echols and Two Lies and a Spy.
It was a great day 1 in NYC.
