It's "Art Fair" week in NYC ......
& others toooo numerous to mention!!!

We "art accessorators" do
sooo much walking & soooo much talking
on soooo much concrete .....
we're exhausted!!!

So, the most important "accessorations" at art fairs
are the chic "rest spots" 
where you can have a coffee, chat about art, 
& rest those tired tootsies!!!

These "spots" are at The Armory Show at Pier 94 .....
