As I have written a few blog entries ago, the media and events this week in New York City say its fashion week. And there are enough fashion shows and events taking place this week to say so. And I guess the weak of fashion does have its benefits for those who are walking the runways of the sidewalks and concrete jungle. I went to Housing Works Thrift Shops and The Salvation Army Thrift Stores today and lo and behold, they were both having 50% off everything in the store specials, I mean every single thing in the store. Wow! That's great if one is a shopaholic and doing the thrift store rounds, as I saw several other people going from one store to the other as I were. And the items were flying off the shelves with testimonies like "I got this fabulous table for one dollar!" and "They were just giving away everything for five dollars because they wanted to clear the floor for their fashion show!" The Housing Works Auction Special September 4-18th that is. Happy fashion weak.
