Shop: online or offline, where did you spend most of your mad money this year?
Mad money came in very handy when my sister took me on an outing to stores along Harwin Drive in Houston during a visit in October 09. Shopping in this part of town is great fun. The bargains are amazing, the variety of products (jewelry, watches, shoes, scarves, sunglasses, purses, and on and on) is phenomenal. The prices were so reasonable, I walked out many treasures.
I had never shopped Harwin Drive despite having lived in Houston back in the late 70's and through the 80's. The burst of retail activity and its reputation for great deals is relatively recent. Now I understand what my sister has been talking about all this time and why she makes regular treks to check out the new merchandise. Things are always changing.
Check out this wall of pashmina scarves. Every color, every style. Gorgeous. A buyer's paradise. We had a marvelous time and for way less than a hundred bucks, I loaded up some great finds.
