Christmas already?

It must be close to that most wonderful time of that year. Last week’s email from Anthropologie featured tree ornamentation. Several of these caught my eye but I refuse to even think about decorations until after Thanksgiving. Will any of these be hanging around your home this winter?

I have often wondered if there is a regular cycle that Anthropologie uses to mark down items and post new arrivals. Do the stores put out new clothing around the same time each month? The consensus seems to be yes and no. I asked several store reps and managers around the tri-state area as well as one of their phone…

A little baggage

What is the quickest way to tell the difference between a city mouse and a country mouse? Look at the size of their bag. While my weekends in Connecticut were spent with an over-the-shoulder satchel these days my city self travels with a huge hobo that could be probably be licensed as a deadly weapon in several states. But if…
