Special Shopping Assignment in NYC
One of the things on my "to do" list in New York City was the purchase of a costume for Bappo Natale, or Santa Clause. It took a day and a half of going in and out of stores before we found the right place for a costume that would look good and also fit me.
Our search ultimately took us to 36th Street in the Garment District
and the building in the middle of the block in this picture.
On the 8th Floor (west) we opened the door to Creative Costumes. We were greeted by racks of costumes and two wonderful sales people.
