November New York Sample Sales are HOT!

October 31st, 2011
For those who seek out or want to try the Sample Sale world, the news is.. that they are starting much earlier this year. You can thank the economy, as the stores have purchased less, leaving us lots of yummy stock to pick from.  Whereas, right after Thanksgiving was always the commencement of the bounty, looks like the week of November 7th is this year’s start time. And the race begins. Shoshanna, Furla and even Stetson are opening their doors next week. Shop Gotham’s Garment Center tour will take you to only a couple select ones – the best of the best, along with the private showrooms NOONE else gets into. Clear your cards ladies. Tours are Wednesday and Friday morning and max at 12 persons.

A different side of Christmas shopping in NYC

October 13th, 2011
In NYC, there are well traveled shopping paths for visitors. But for those who want to strike out differently, may we suggest a Private Tour of a less traveled path? Some of the best shopping in Manhattan lies on the Upper East and Upper West Sides. Designer vintage shops that carry Prada, Gucci, and the like, at a fraction of the cost of comparable stores in Soho. Mix that up with luscious boutiques and this shopping as it should be. Shop Gotham’s private tours are $345 for a custom 3 hour tour for us to 5 persons. Let the experts hold your hand so you can hold the bags 

Why take a NYC Shopping Tour? and with Shop Gotham

October 10th, 2011
NYC is vast and if you love to shop, it is hard to know where to begin. If you dont get here often, we do recommend certain key stops on your own, such as the flagship Bloomingdales on Lexington and 59th or perhaps pop into Century 21 on 64th and Broadway, for bargains. Of course, with loads of time, if you are an “explorer” you can spend an entire day in each neighborhood.
But for those of you who like  a little more handholding, need/wish to get alot out of a shorter amount of time, or want to do things others cannot do, we suggest a Shop Gotham NYC shopping tour. We offer 5 regularly scheduled fascinating programs each a week plus bountiful options for privates (you and a pal or 2) and larger groups.
