Black Friday in New York is a real treat for kicking off the holiday shopping season. Today SB was off spending the afternoon with Grandma, so GB and I decided to get into the spirit of the season with some retail therapy. We found the streets around 5th Avenue buzzing with people who all seemed to have the same idea. Crowds gathered around many of the store windows. This city goes all out with its holiday window displays. I have read about these amazing windows for years, but never got to actually see them until now. In New York, the big name department stores line the streets with fantasy windows in hopes of bringing people in to shop for high-end designer gifts. (Yes, we were inspired to spend.) These windows are over the top! And they feel like no expense has been spared. The NY Times is even reporting that this year the Bergdorf Goodman windows are using around 7 million crystals. It is maximum “WOW”, and shoppers crowd around with smartphones in hand to snap a photo of these great creations. Happy holiday spending everyone!
