“Guide was FABULOUS! Even with 6 other guests along, she Catered to our interests and was very knowledgeable about the area. We were given a great map and it was suggested we use it to mark places we wanted to return to, which turned out to be an excellent tip. A couple of English stores have just arrived to NYC and we especially enjoyed those. The time goes very fast, so plan to stick around after and make time to go back to the street vendor selling one of kind, beautiful things on Prince and Mulberry. Great program.”

World’s Best Shopping Cities For A Girl’s Weekend
FEBRUARY 24, 2015
New York City
I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.
– CARRIE BRADSHAW
“Carrie Bradshaw, New York City and shopping; as harmonious a trio as Barry, Robin and Maurice. For a generation of women who drooled over the fashion on display in Sex In The City, there will never be anywhere as exciting as NYC for shopping. As Carrie so often displayed in one fabulous outfit; there is something here for every one. From high end fashion to vintage thrift and everything in between.However, for those of us who don’t have Carrie’s knowledge of her beloved home town it can be pretty daunting. Why not take away all the stress and take a Shop Gotham tour? Led by Manhattanite shopping experts with fantastic insider knowledge.
Take the Garment Centre “Insider” Shopping Tour and you will be escorted to six, appointment-only, designer showrooms that are not accessible to the public. You will have the opportunity to meet a designer or two in their showroom and learn interesting titbits about the fashion industry from both emerging and household names.
You shop exactly where department & boutique store buyers, as well as fashion editors do. Best of all, you will have access to wholesale prices, just like them. Shopping is for current season items at an incredible 50-70% below retail!
Carrie would have LOVED this!
If that isn’t enough we recommend a double whammy; book the Soho and Nolita tour as well. Here you will visit a special selection of independent boutiques that reveal hidden gems ranging from trendy luxury to chic bargains. Your fashion-savvy guide will update you on current season trends and assist with wardrobe styling. Several shops will extend exclusive store discounts, which are usable all day so no rush to make a purchase during the tour.“
Good news! Winter is almost over which means the Shop Gotham Soho Nolita Shopping Tours will begin again! Starting March 6th, our explorative downtown shopping tours commence each week on Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. Looking for an activity to do with mom and teens in NYC or groups of women in NYC? This tour is the fun and easy solution!
Here is a small sneak peak into a few new stores in the area that have opened up this winter:
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.
Good news to report regarding Spring, sunshine and warm weather- the groundhog spotted his shadow. Predicative of early onset Spring and an end in sight for snow, rain (pure gloom) and cold, which we couldn’t be more grateful for! What we are really looking forward to, however, is new Spring 2015 fashion and trends. Here are a few of our favorite Spring trends to incorporate while shopping and when packing for your visit to NYC in the upcoming months:
- Sporty Minimalism
- Fringe and Bohemian
- High Necklines and Statement Earrings
- Gingham and “Blooming” Prints
- 1970’s Nostalgia
- Exposed Shoulders
