NORFOLK STREET NYC. GREAT COUPLE of HOURS on ONE BLOCK of NYC’s LOWER EAST SIDE

June 14th, 2018

A GREAT LATE DAY INTO EVE on One Block of the the Lower East Side NYC. NORFOLK ST.

Lower East Side speakeasy

Once upon a time, the Lower East Side was the hub for pickles, Jewish deli, cheap clothes and poor immigrants. It’s Long been gentrified and the pace of building is astounding. The most interesting and least known streets are the most Eastern ones ( we are talking almost at the Williamsburg bridge) A couple of hours on Norfolk Street (between Delancey and Rivington)

LA CONTENTA: lacontentanyc.com. Great Mexican in this tiny outpost. like most of the area, a daily Happy Hour for reduced priced food and drinks draws many between 4 and 7pm

THE BACKROOM(SPEAKEASY): backroomnyc.com. Dark and moody – good for snuggling – with a truly precarious entrance leading to 1930’s prohibition themed spot. All cocktails served in tea cups.

NURSE BETTIE: http://nursebettie.com. Go for happy hour, Stay for the free Burlesque shows.

Mother and Daughter NYC Shopping

November 5th, 2017
Designer Showroom Clothing

Sometimes too much is well.. just too much. NYC can feel like that. Including all the retail options.

One of the great shopping mysteries has always been the Garment Center District. What lies behind those many windows of those many buildings where the designers create their wares for the stores.

The Garment Center “insider” shopping tour will unmask those secrets and we have found its a wonderful jaunt for moms and daughters (ages 18 and older) to shop at Wholesale and learn a bit about this mysterious and legendary fashion industry.

All guests are sent home with a complimentary list of Sample Sales for post tour independent shopping. Which will keep anyone busy with shopping fun for many many hours.  PEAK Sample Sale Season is November 15 to December 15

Happy Shopping

Fall 2017 Apparel Garment District

The ABC’s of New York City Sample Sales

As the peak season approaches each year, we try to enlighten our readers with the What, Why and How of Sample Sales.

Once upon a time, designers sold their handful of sample size items at the end of the year. These are the individual pieces shown to store buyers. Some make it to full production, some do not.  Typically, these are size 2, 4 or 6. That was then, this is now

Now, sample sales are BIG business and one can expect big inventory. All seasonal overstock in ALL sizes as well as those coveted one-off samples, are offered at Massive discount. This is an opportunity to buy often unaffordable clothing and accessories at very affordable prices. Or to chase down the designer names you love. or to simply shop for cool stuff. Essential to know: Must get to Sample Sale on its First day open!

In New York City, the apex of the 2017 sample sale season is November 13 to December 15.

Shop Gotham knows what is what and what is where. Come join us for private access to designer showrooms to shop at wholesale followed by a roster of all the best sample sales in town. Forget the Department Stores. This is oh so much chicer.

Here are but a few names we are excited about. Starting in NOV

Tracey Reese
