The Absolute Must Places to Shop NYC

August 28th, 2010

We are often asked, ” if I only havea  few precious hours in NYC to shop, where should I go”. Its a quandry to answer this, as shopping is not  “one-size fits all” endeavor. However, we offer this, regardless of what you intend to shop for when visiting NYC (and if you dont intend to shop, you’re crazy) there are 4 places you must not skip, if just for the experience: ABC Carpet and Home; the Apple store on 59th & Fifth ; FAO Schwartz and Bloomingdales on Lexington & 59th.  In our humble opinion.

Or how that charity managed to score 10 beautiful/stylish men and women to run the check-in table?  Mustard Lane has a stockpile of trained, talented (and it doesn’t hurt that they are all gorgeous) people to help companies promote their events. As they say, they can help you “promote, serve, smile, pour, hang and dish”. One stop shopping. Too bad you can’t take them home.
