Cheap Shopping --
... a Journeywoman insiders' guide
93 Mercer Street
(between Broome & Spring Streets)
merchandise in this Asian folk art inspired store
is almost as beautiful as the shop itself. Their
vast array of unique items makes just as great a
gift for someone special as it does a memento of
your trip. The inventory here includes just about
any sort of jewelry or accessory you could imagine.
I was taken aback by the gorgeous porcelain bracelets,
and even more surprised by their $8.00 price tags!
is certainly one place where you can look like you
shop in SoHo, without paying SoHo prices.

sales are one of the best ways to save money on
top designer clothing. The real trouble comes when
you're trying to locate one of these sales. When
dealing with this shop there is absolutely no need
to wonder. At SSS Sample
Sale, there's always a sale going on.

1256 Lexington Avenue
(between 84th & 85th Streets)
browsing through an enormous inventory of new age
books, jewelry, and other unique items sounds like
a great way to while away an afternoon, Star
Magic awaits you. There's Tarot cards,
candles and check out their fantastic selection
of unusual jewelry -- made with amethyst, amber,
malachite, and moonstone -- at prices that can't
be beat. There's always something new and interesting
to see here.
Tenth Avenue (at 24th Street)
you've ever fantasized about owning a Portico furnishing,
now's your chance to make it happen. Sure, even
their pillowcases retail for $50.00 or more, but
at the Portico Outlet,
it's all about savings. The same high-end furnishings
that can be found in the SoHo store just a short
distance away can be had here at a lovely discount.
So maybe that $2,500.00 armchair won't be seen for
$50.00, but you can rest assured that you're not
paying full price for anything!
Fifth Avenue (between 19th & 20th Streets)
it be true? Could one of New York's trendiest stores
offer designer clothing at affordable prices? You
bet your Tocca dress it can! If you can manage to
get to the back of the store without snatching up
any of the brand-new merchandise in front, you can
find lots of bargains on the back sale racks. How
about a Kate Spade bag for $100.00? It's worth the
splurge for such great savings!
