I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.

Carrie Bradshaw Shopping NYC

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.Artists and Fleas
