My new place

110307_foyer.jpg

So if you are a reader of this blog you know I love to shop. I recently made the biggest purchase of my life when I bought my own apartment. It is a lovely 1 bedroom prewar co-op on the third floor in the prettiest neighborhood in Queens, NYC. I love the sunken living room, hardwood floors and the 15 min subway ride into Manhattan. Plus tree lined streets and Irish pubs on every corner.

So please excuse the slow down on the blog front these past few months. Instead of bag shopping I've been taking trips to Home Depot, and surfing around Bed & Bath and The Container Store.

Purchasing real estate in NYC is a painful drawn out tedious process that only works out in the end if you truly love the apartment. I was lucky to have the help of a wonder lawyer, real estate agent and mortgage broke.

Other good resources:
Curbed
Property Shark
Craigs List
Street Easy
NY Times Real Estate

I was able to fit in a few bag purchases that I'll be talking about here soon, so stay tuned.

Yikes...I've been getting so much spam through my comments form that I've given up trying to keep up with it. So if you've sent me a comment recently please resend to thebagblog AT gmail DOT com.

Also, on a happier note, TBB got a great write up recently at the Chicago Sun-Times for Fashion's best blogs. Check out our mention and all the other great must read blogs.

2007 Resolution: Update The Bagblog more!

010707_chloe.jpg

Lack of updates recently, I've been busy with work, hanging out in NYC, the holidays and I'm pretty happy with my current bag. But I've got some ideas, some plans for new bags I'd like to purchase in 2007 so updates should pick up soon.

In the meantime enjoy this picture of the Chloe bags I spotted at the DSW in Union Square, 14th Street, NYC.
