[livejournal.com profile] sandokai mentioned visiting Macy's Flower Show while in NYC. I happened by there today in search of a new umbrella. ($24 for a Totes umbrella listed at $22? K-Mart, here I come!) Just as I entered the main floor, a tour was leaving from the DKNY display. It was free, so I invited myself along. The place not only looked wonderful, it smelled wonderful!
