What to Expect on a NYC Sweet 16 or Teen Shopping Program with Shop Gotham

Teens love to shop.  Indeed they do. On a recent Shop Gotham program in SoHo/Nolita12 teens from Cleveland returned home with bags ablaze with goodies and certainly no one broke the bank or worse, angered their parents!

They commenced their day at an indoor market for young indie designers.  30 designers under one roof offer everything from leather jackets to candles.

Then on to 8 more NYC cool stores which offered selections the girls could not find at home.

Along the way, their fashionable guide regaled them with stories about the area  of Soho and Nolita – once a thriving art community, shared fashion tips, helped select pieces which were just right for the season and pointed out where celebrities live.

The 3 hours concluded with special cupcakes for the honoree from a famous tv bakery

Shop Gotham Sweet 16’s are available all year round for the lucky shopper. For details, see www.shopgotham.com

I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.
CARRIE BRADSHAW

Carrie Bradshaw Shopping NYC

Carrie Bradshaw, New York City and shopping; as harmonious a trio as Barry, Robin and Maurice. For a generation of women who drooled over the fashion on display in Sex In The City, there will never be anywhere as exciting as NYC for shopping. As Carrie so often displayed in one fabulous outfit; there is something here for every one. From high end fashion to vintage thrift and everything in between.However, for those of us who don’t have Carrie’s knowledge of her beloved home town it can be pretty daunting. Why not take away all the stress and take a Shop Gotham tour? Led by Manhattanite shopping experts with fantastic insider knowledge.

Take the Garment Centre “Insider” Shopping Tour and you will be escorted to six, appointment-only, designer showrooms that are not accessible to the public. You will have the opportunity to meet a designer or two in their showroom and learn interesting titbits about the fashion industry from both emerging and household names.

You shop exactly where department & boutique store buyers, as well as fashion editors do. Best of all, you will have access to wholesale prices, just like them. Shopping is for current season items at an incredible 50-70% below retail!

Carrie would have LOVED this!

If that isn’t enough we recommend a double whammy; book the Soho and Nolita tour as well. Here you will visit a special selection of independent boutiques that reveal hidden gems ranging from trendy luxury to chic bargains. Your fashion-savvy guide will update you on current season trends and assist with wardrobe styling. Several shops will extend exclusive store discounts, which are usable all day so no rush to make a purchase during the tour.Artists and Fleas

Recent Soho & Nolita Shopping Tour Review

Why you should take a Soho & Nolita NYC Shopping Tour with Shop Gotham

Reviewed March 15, 2014 NEW
Good Adventure!
There were only 5 on our tour, which was a really good number for venturing around the Nolita area. We were taken into a variety of boutique shops where no two places were alike. The size of our group also allowed for an “education” in life in Nolita. From shopping to architecture to a special stop at a cupcake shop, this was a great tour!

What to wear in NYC june 2011

June 5th, 2011

Visiting NYC this month and wondering what to wear? If you havent heard, NYC did not get spring this year. We went right from winter to summer. So expect temps in 80’s during the day: 60’s- 70’s at night. 

If you are touring, going to museums, doing the landmark visits, the key is always comfortable stylish shoes. This is a walking city and wherever you are going, anticipate some walking to get there and afterwards, while you hunt for a cute cafe to relax. Women: casual dresses and “current” capris are always in style here. Pair with low espadrilles or cute flat sandles. UNLESS you are 20 something, size 0-2, short shorts is not a good look!!.   On the same note, baggy old longer shorts is not the NYC way here either. Think city, not barbecue. Casual, but stylish!

Want some help picking summer pieces, call on Shop Gotham NYC shopping tours.
