Cheap Shopping -- New York
... a Journeywoman insiders' guide


Steuer Hosiery...
31 West 32nd Street (between Fifth & Sixth Avenues)


New outfit? Check! Shoes? Check! Jewelry? Check! Hosiery?... Let's face it, we're always in need of some hosiery and, unfortunately, it doesn't come cheaply. Well, not at most stores anyway. Steuer Hosiery is different. Here, you can pick up three pairs of pantyhose, tights, what-have-you for the price you'd pay for one in a typical department store. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful -- always a plus -- and this is one of the few wholesale places in New York where regular Journey Women like us are welcome! Take them up on their hospitality.

Kids Are Magic...
2293 Broadway (between 82nd & 83rd Streets)


Finally, after all this splurging on "you", feelings of guilt are normal. So why not counter all that self-centered buying with a trip to Kids Are Magic. With two levels of brand name kid's clothing at 40 - 60 percent off (and an enormous toy section), I dare you to go home empty-handed. P.S. Sizes range from infants clothing, up to boys' size 20 and girls' size 14. Definitely worth a stop!

Breakfast at Tiffany's...
727 Fifth Avenue (at 57th Street)

Perhaps it's because of our immediate association with a certain little-black-dress-clad actress, but nothing spells glamour in New York City like a shopping spree at Tiffany's. When money is no object, there's nothing more therapeutic than spending several hundred (or perhaps several thousand) dollars on all the completely unnecessary luxuries that Tiffany & Co. has to offer. Whether you intend to buy, buy, buy or simply to browse, browse, browse, browse -- this particular landmark is a wonderful stop for breakfast or any other time of day.

Thoughts on New York Shopping...

ometimes it seems as if all of New York City is one enormous shopping center, with new stores opening up and older ones closing down daily.
(Christiane Bird -- Moon Travel Handbooks)

New York City stands alone as the shopping capital of the universe.
(Avante Guide, New York City)

Cash prices are usually better on the lower East Side, so don't be afraid to do a little bit of haggling here.
(Gerry Frank, Where To Find It, Buy It, Eat It in New York)

No matter how strange or obscure the item, it seems to me that in New York there is at least one shop that sells what you are looking for.
(Evelyn Hannon, Editor, Journeywoman)
