holly-wreath.jpgShopping Trip Ideas — Even a Day Trip Option
There’s still time — and great airfares — for you and your girlfriends to shop NYC! If you can get 6 gals together, you can get a Travels with Tish-only group fare that permits roundtrip travel on the same day. How fun would that be? Or make that shopping trip in January for after-Christmas bargains!
Shopping News.
Here’s the latest news from the Lower East Side of New York.

Fun Links for Fashion Shopping
Manolo’s Blog – No, not Manolo Blahnik (for those of you who are Sex in the City fans), but Manolo the shoe guy who seems to know a lot about the world of shoe fashion. Very fun to browse this blog’s pages.

Info from Travels with Tish. Don’t forget to check out my previous posts about New York City, especially the terrific shopping options in Lower Manhattan.

Have a great trip — even if just for a day!

1) Special Airfare for 6 (or more) Gals. Just $200 roundtrip (including all taxes and fees) for a one-day or overnight trip. Limited dates in December and January, but well worth it!

2) Maps of Lower Manhattan. Print out a street map and a subway map to put in your pocket before you go.

3) Hotels Rooms for 4 or 6. Not too many Manhattan hotels accommodate more than 2 in a room. But I’ve compiled a list that will take 4, 5 or 6 in a room. Fly together, room together — have fun and save bucks for shopping or theatre tickets!

4) Events in Manhattan. Check out the events that will be going on during your NYC visit — like the Holiday Market at Columbus Circle that runs December 1-24. Also the Holiday Market at Union Square runs through December 24. An opportunity to find those unique gifts you can’t find at home. You might want to check out the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Christmas tree and Neopolitan Baroque Creche — a perennial NY favorite.
