Happy Black Friday. I hope your Thanksgiving was a success.
Are you going shopping today? I don’t shop that often, and especially not on days that tend to be crowded and busy. I lived in NYC too long and I don’t enjoy hordes of people. My top 5 NYC shopping nightmares are:
- Macy’s on 34th Street
- A beauty sale (samples from the closet…money goes to charity) at any magazine
- Century 21 across the street from Ground Zero (P.S. On my first of two visits, the Towers were still standing—sad.)
- Anything in Times Square
- Bloomingdale’s when there is a big sale
I did some non-stressful browsing earlier this week, though. I was with two friends in Freakmont, and we were looking at apartment stuff. I picked up some strange ideas. For your inspiration…
The following items are from Marshall’s (the final one is from Bed, Bath, and Beyond):
At CostPlus World Market, I saw some really interesting wine bottles. If your hosts aren’t too discerning about taste, why not pick up a conversation-starting label or bottle? Vintners are really getting creative these days!
What did you buy today?
