NYC Self Guided/Self Directed Shopping Itineraries are the Perfect Solution for the Independent Traveler

August 1st, 2019

Guided Shopping Tours liked those provided by Shop Gotham are a unique way to explore specialty shopping when unfamiliar with a new place.

However, for those who prefer to Shop Independently at their own PACE, we have developed a program just for you: Self Directed/Self Guided Itineraries.

Self Directed/Self Guided Itineraries give you the freedom to shop and explore when YOU want while visiting NYC. Whether you are a “careful” shopper, moving thoroughly through each rack, a speed shopper, seeking to “get the job done”, or simply want to entertain your Teen, these itineraries will provide the direction needed for a fruitful day. In this city of too many options, we will lead you to the “good stuff” targeting boutiques which are worthwhile and which you likely do not have at home, so as to come back with a little NYC in your bag.

Self Guided/Self Directed Itineraries available:
SOHO/NOLITA CHIC BOUTIQUES FOR MEN AND WOMEN
TEEN DRESS SHOPPPING
and soon available
WOMENS FORMAL DRESS BOUTIQUES
DESIGNER CONSIGMENT

And.. check out our Downtown Independent Food Tasting Itinerary

Classic basics, Men’s and women’s clothes with a Gap/Joe fresh feel. The best part? The sale section in the back of the store
H&M sister brand opened their first US location this October in Soho. European style merchandise: apparel between $50-100, accessories ($10-50), bath/home products and features a HUGE shoe bar in the back of the store.

Small gem stone/mixed metals shop that opened up in January. The store originated in Park Slope and still have store there, but this is first NYC location. The sell a variety of men’s and women’s jewelry/gifts: “finer” jewelry (bridal collection) towards the back, less expensive bracelets, charms, keychains, temp tattoos, rings and gifts towards the front.
Very friendly, welcoming and educating staff. They are ecstatic to tell you a story for each stone-regarding it’s origin or it’s historical uses. Turf floor, books with gemstone info are scattered about and the shop girls hand out cards that describe each stone you are interested in. Floor to ceiling hand made gem stone jewelry-most pieces raining between $150-250 but there are some less expensive pieces/small gifts.
