This is City Bakery on 18th Street and yes, those are marshmallows hanging from the ceiling. I got some nice comments on my heart marshmallows so I know people love ’em and City Bakery is hosting their 18th Annual Hot Chocolate Festival TODAY, Thursday, 2/18 with unlimited hot chocolate and hot chocolate themed knitting workshops for the price of a ticket, wow! You can read about the event on Grub Street, where Chef-Owner Maury Rubin says that “knitting feels like hot chocolate”. I agree! and thanks to my friend Jenny for reminding me about this.
They also have Purl Patchwork, a fabric store!
I have a work thing and can’t make it to the event tomorrow, so I bought a few ginormous chocolate chunk cookies on my way home, but if anyone goes let me know how it is!
From the bakery I also had some other errands to run:
I stopped by Anthropologie (love the sweet clothes, charming fabrics and dishware and the Mistral soaps, even though I just made some of my own). Hey, is anyone watching Man Shops Globe on the Sundance Channel about buyer Keith Johnson’s adventures procuring product for the stores? Also got some wool for a present at Lion Brand Yarn (which I heart! as I explained here).
The bunch of ribbon is from Paper Presentation: an incredible store that I could get lost in for hours. I heard about it from awesome prop stylist Leslie Siegel. Seriously, check out her portfolio: it’s amAzing! Those are also some little pink pinking shears up in the pic.
