... I'll be eating pie for breakfast and going NOWHERE near the shops. If you're like me and want to get a jump on holiday shopping but avoid the black Friday madness, check out this weekend's sale at the Marika Charles Factory Store in Schenectady. Beautiful merino and cashmere scarves and wraps for under $50 (the merino ones are); artfully dyed, supersoft t-shirts and the latest addition to their collection: incredible cashmere tunics. One for you, one for me, one for me.... Friday 11/19 through Sunday 11/21. Click here for hours and directions.
If you prefer to get your online shop on, one of my favorite sites for funky gifts is uncommon goods. Filled with things you will not find anywhere else and super-easy to navigate, they've got tabs for stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, Hanukkah gifts, you name it. Something for everyone on your list, could it be any easier than this?
