November 2 Shop the Garment District Tour


Happy Labor Day weekend! Telling you again... Consider coming along!

This post will end a quiet week for the blog, as I am took some time to immerse myself in pending projects and family time.  As this week comes to a close, there remain some spaces available for the November 2nd Shop the Garment District tour.  I have learned so much in my years shopping around the district, and since I've been mining the district for this blog, that I am truly excited to share this info and experience with you!  Come along!

Itinerary below:

10AM - 2PM - Shopping (Will include several very special fabric stores with a wide variety of offerings suitable for many different purposes/types of garments.)

2PM-3PM - Lunch (included in your fee)

3PM - 5PM armed with your "Secret Map", you may visit more garment district stores if you wish, and give unique codes (that you'll get from me) to vendors who will give special assistance/discounts.

The cost of this guided, efficient tour is $75 per person. If you use this trip to shop and participate in what NYC has to offer, you will save at least as much as you are paying, and probably far more.

Wanna come?  Click below, send payment, and the details on meeting time/place will be provided. From outta town? If you need hotel and/or travel help, I will advise some of the BEST NYC secrets I know! Also, you can click on hotels above (this page - to your right) for the most standard and convenient choices. Payment is only accepted via PayPal (you do not need a Paypal account), credit or debit card. No cash, personal checks, or additional payments will be accepted on the day of the tour. The trip will involve a good amount of walking, so come prepared, and healthy.


  1. Thank you to all who have signed up so far! I will consider 10 a "go", and expect to get to that number well in advance of the trip, but for the rest of you there are still spaces open!

  2. I don't suppose you're considering a pre-Christmas tour? Perhaps conveniently (for me, anyway) scheduled in the first week of December for people travelling from far away lands in the search of pretty things?

    1. Hmmm... that could work if there is enoug interest. Only thing that could cause a problem, is if the weather doesn't cooperate. I'd be game, but would need to assess actual interest to see if feasible.

  3. When I click "add to cart" it just takes me to the paypal login page and then nothing? Is the tour sold out then?

  4. (Didn't know where to put this.)

    An entry in the "Restaurants" section needs to be revised. Kofoo is not takeout only. It's a tiny space, but it does have minimal seating. I think they also deliver, but can't recall.

  5. Thanks! I have yet to update and expand the restaurant section, since I have a WHOLE lot to say about that! Thanks for the info!
