I JUST completed the powerpoint portion of the presentation I'll be giving tomorrow morning at ACC Baltimore, and thought it might be nice (before I hit the pool and sauna in our hotel) to share some pictures from Philadelphia.
Jae and I were in Philly on Sunday and Monday to catch the Buyer's Market of American Craft. We found some wonderful new artisans there who I can hardly wait to share with you... You'll see what we found later this week ('cause I don't have pics just now!)
Our Brooklyn friends Anders and Ken had decided to have a guys weekend in Philly, so we met up with them for dinner Sunday night. We found an AMAZING Mexican restaurant, Las Bugambilias, totally regional home-cookin' lovingly prepared and served in a homey space filled with vintage photographs of Mexican movie stars. The perfect food was served on handmade stoneware dishes (pictured above. They were all signed on the bottoms, I checked...). After dinner I retreated to the hotel so the guys could go do whatever it is that guys do on a Sunday night in Philly...
As I said, we're in Baltimore now and will be until Friday. It's unlikely that I'll blog again before then, but when I do I'll share all the tips and links I mention in tomorrow's talk! Til then, enjoy these pics!
A detail of the phenomenal bricolage/mosaic house Magic Gardens.
We window shopped the antique shops along lovely Pine Street. I liked this old cash register and lamp with a glass shade that looks like fabric draped over the bulb.
