If You are Coming to NYC..

October 18th, 2009


Shop Gotham loves to pass along special offers from our friends in NYC to friends who are coming to NYC.. We know you are likely here to do more than just shop (or maybe not!)

If you love theater AND dance, you should check out BURN THE FLOOR  a breathtaking blend of Latin and Ballroom dance first conceived as a special performance at Sir Elton John’s 50th birthday celebration in 1997. It takes audiences on a journey through the passionate drama of dance. The elegance of the Viennese Waltz, the exuberance of Jive, the intensity of the Paso Doble—audiences experience them all, as well as the Tango, Samba, Mambo, Quickstep and Swing. It’s Ballroom dance with a sexy 21st century edge.

Every Tuesday evening there are exclusive talkbacks with the cast and crew of BURN THE FLOOR.

NYC Sample Sales Start Early in NYC

October 18th, 2009

We who have our finger on the proverbial pulse of nyc sample sales see that the “season” is starting a good 3 weeks ahead of schedule. Waiting to come to NYC to score your fall/winter items. Don’t delay. The goods are here and they are already discounted.  Note for the unaffiliated: Designers each do but one sale per season ranging from  1- 5 days.

 Remember.. Shop Gotham vets out the good sales from the mediocre. Check out our Garment Center “Insider” Shopping Tours and our holiday time Cheap and Chic shopping tours.


What's the deal with Uggs?

October 18th, 2009

We recently took some swank Parisian girls shopping in Soho. All they wanted was Uggs. Why? turns out they are about a 1/3 of the price as in Europe.  We understand the power of the Euro, but not why an Australian brand would be so much cheaper here. Nevertheless, upon reaching the store, we found it to be the busiest one in all of Soho and nearly out of stock.  Tip for the day. Buy them online!

Vintage Favorite for Teens

October 18th, 2009

vintage dressVintage apparel is genuinely hot in NYC. Lots of it and sought-after. But… depending on the neighborhood, it can be mighty pricey for “used goods”. If your teen is bent on checking out NYC vintage wearables, head directly to Zachary’s Smile. Part vintage “inspired”, part real deal, its not “designer laden”, but it does have cool and price appropriate duds with a big nod to the 70’s.  Recently, they have added a basement area; most items under $29 bucks. We like the Soho/Noho locale:  Zachary’s Smile 317 Lafayette (btw Houston & Bleeker)
