|I have this secret....

Did I get your attention? I normally don't rave about services in the e-retail world but, this one has helped my shopping experience by leaps and bounds and I wanted to share it. It's called Shop It To Me at shopittome.com. My good friend James sent me the link and I signed up with a little apprehension but, really, it is so insanely simple. You sign up for the clothing brands, lines, etc that you are interested in. You tell it your sizes etc and I signed up for email alerts once a week - on Sunday. You can sign up for more frequent emails or every time a sale starts on something you are interested in. So - I signed up for Gap, Armani Exchange, Calvin Klein, North Face, Banana Republic - maybe one or two more and every Sunday I'm alerted to the sales on these brands from various online retailers whether it's Macy's or Dillards having an online sale on Calvin Klein or a Gap.com or Armani Online sale, etc... and the clothes are a great buy. I'm not one for spending too much time in a mall checking out clothes that I only half like so, I generally wear clothes until they have holes in them. I am happy to report that in the last couple of months, I have purchased 5 new shirts to replace my older ones. A wardrobe addition of 5 items in 2 months is just unheard of for me so, needless to say, I am ecstatic with this service. |
So, yeah - I just came to LJ to rave about clothes. I've been keeping busy with my puppet stuff. I'm going to Jersey City later today to work one on one with another puppeteer on technique and such. Sesame Street Muppets will be on Scrubs this Tuesday night!!! Weeeee! ...and the big one is Friday night - Sesame Street at 40 lecture which I will be attending in Wayne, NJ with a panel of some of the original cast members including Frank Oz and Kevin Clash. Yes - it's puppet month! Saturday, I am testing the puppet workshop flow with my friends at my house so - it's a craft date and we're all making puppets! I don't know if I posted this before but, I also have a puppet blog I've been updating at http://puppetmuse.blogspot.com <check it out if you're interested.
