Shop 'til You Drop!

The Shops! The Stores!

I had such fun today, while running errands, I spontaneously went on a mini shopping "spree" -since I had to get something for Billy's birthday (he calls it the un-birthday). Wilma Boyd of Preferred Travel, here in lovely Naples had suggested I try ViVi for lunch, and I did check it out, it's fab! (Thanks Wilma). Wilma heads up the hottest travel agency in town, so of course she knows what's hot and what's not. In the same large shopping centre, I discovered POTIRON, a french housewares place, the only one in the U.S - seven in Paris, two in Montreal - a cross between Pier One and Pottery Barn, only more modern...where I picked up a divine rose scented candle, and a set of four Murano like glasses... LOVE! (Potiron is french for pumpkin) I also made pit stops at Godiva (Valentines Day chocs still on sale 50% off) for dessert truffles and The Body Shop, for some coconut body wash, scrub and cream for dear Billy. Yesterday, Jerry and I finally connected for brunch, and I received for MY birthday a darling glass decoupaged dish from Bruno Dhaine with a quote from Oscar Wilde! Plus, a pair of lovely Christofle demi tasse spoons - which match my pattern (Chinon) Thanks Jer! What fun I have been having due to all of this RETAIL THERAPY!!!!!!!! (Check out Potiron on Apartment Therapy) I say, shopping is quite a jolly sport! Do tell ! Enjoy! DF ******
