Shopping

Coming to NY in early Oct. with my daughter to celebrate my cancer recovery. We are staying in Times Square. Looking for shopping for plus size clothing, not chain stores. Also want to shop for jewelry handmade by artists. Would SOHO be a good place for this? Spending one whole day in Chelsea near Highline and market. Any good kitchen shopping near there?

The Bowery Kitchen inside Chelsea market would be a good place to start. Plus size clothing that are not part of a chain is hard to pinpoint, but do take a look at Lord & Taylor. If you are there during a weekend there are always street markets and jewelry artist have tables showing their wares. You can also look at shops in SoHo and the Village. Henri Bendel should get a visit as they are now totally a jeans and accessory store and may have a surprise or two.

On your way down to Chelsea you could stop off in Union Square and visit FishsEddy. Very cool store.

And there's Sur La Table in Soho, and a visit to Pearl River for some "Chinese cookware" (and other gift items and chachkas.)

What's your budget for jewelry? Linhardt Studio is terrific and definitely "handmade by artists".

Yes, congratulations!

For unique jewelry consider hitting one of the flea markets. (If you search this forum there are some recent threads about getting to the Brooklyn flea which features a lot of "indie" designers.)

For kitchen stuff

Bowery Kitchen & Pearl River, as suggested above.

Congrats on your recovery.

I want to say, don't underestimate the chain stores for plus sizes. Lord & Taylor, Macy's and so on all have much more selections than the same stores where I live. AND you are eligible for the visitors discount at L&T ... Not sure about the others

What kind of jewelry are you looking for? I got some very cheap, fun stuff at the Brooklyn Flea. Initial rings made from old typewriter keys and cuff bracelets made from old vinyl records.
