Shopping Tours



Dear Pam, The three of us had the most wonderful time last Friday!! It was truly a life-altering event. My niece was so thrilled with her purchases and with the personal attention and general atmosphere. It was especially great to meet the designers-- Linda and also our last stop (trendy European designer) were highlights. We can't wait to do this again-- Wendy is already planning to bring various guests and family for treks, and we are strategizing out next outing! We feel like we have discovered an amazing inside secret-- and can't believe our friends and colleagues are missing out (although we like feeling like we are so special and privileged to have access to these showrooms!). We look forward to next time!
Amy, Wendy, and Emily (Friday, July 10th morning trek)

Rochelle and I had so much fun on our recent shopping excursion with our leader. What a jewel she is! She knew exactly where to take us according to our tastes and the bargains were fantastic. We are already planning to bring our friends with us for a shopping experience like no other. Can�t wait to do another tour.

Betsy and I had a wonderful time with you in March(week of 18th), it was particularly exciting for the Anderson Cooper group to join us on our trek.

Hi Pamela,
My daughter, Maureen, and I shopped with you on 3rd. Maureen had so much fun and success trying on all the clothes. She found some wonderful things and had to leave some other ones behind. She wants to take another tour in the fall when her cousin is in the city. We were trying to remember all the places that we went so that we could look for the clothing in the stores. There were two showrooms that were French. They had wonderful things. Would you be able to give us the names of the designers? The colorful knits at the first French showroom were lovely and the clothes fit Maureen so well. She was unable to purchase any of the items because she forgot her checkbook. She bought a wonderful knit jumpsuit and strapless dress at the second showroom. Do you go to the same showrooms each week or can Maureen request to go to a specific showroom? We both bought purses at the last showroom and are thrilled with them. Thanks again - I have been telling everyone about your tours!
Best regards,
Martha and Maureen

Thanks for the fabulous time on Monday!  I really enjoyed the experience and love the clothes I brought back.  I wore the gray jersey baby-doll dress to work today and have received non-stop compliments.  I can't wait to wear the black shirt dress from Anni - I am sure it will be even more popular.  I have told everyone about you so they can go on a trek when they visit New York, and I hope to plan another trip to see you soon.Thanks again!

Hi Pamela, Thanks again for our tour – I am anxiously awaiting the two jackets coming soon! Thanks – have a great day!

I just wanted to let you know how much Amy and I enjoyed the shopping experience Our personal shopper took us to some great places and we had plenty of filled bags at the end of the tour. The two of us bought coats, jackets, tops, t-shirts and lots more. We will recommend you to any of our friends that come to NY and when we come again we will be contacting you to come on another tour. Many thanks and hope to see you in the near future.

Hi Pam
I just wanted to thank you for taking my friend Loreen Harper and myself on the shopping tour.  It was great fun and I’m still loving everything I purchased.  The coat that I bought arrived within a week!  Thank you so much for this and also for pointing out clothing that I normally would not have taken a look at.  It helped me expand my fashion vision.  And Sham was great.  After you and the other two shoppers left, Lor and I stayed longer and tried on other things.  She also recommended a few fun restaurants, one of which we tried out and it was very hip and the food, reasonable and excellent.
I’ve already recommended your tour to others.  And just today, I’ve had the chance to open your book and begin reading about all the various designers and ways to shop for less in NYC.
Hope you’re liking your new jacket.
Thanks again.

I wanted to compliment you on the excursion that  myself and my two daughters went on.  It was a experience like none we could have in North Dakota. We thoughly enjoyed it and talked about  making  this (at least) an annual trip for the women of our family.   We went on our excursion on Friday October 24.
Thanks again for one of the best tourist excursions I have been on!

Hi Pam, I hope all is going well with you.  I hope you recall that I was part of your Consignment Crawl on Saturday, October 25th and purchased a pair of Dolce and Gabana black shoes and a black Gucci purse.  I wanted to thank you again for such a great time and will be back on one of your other tours next time I'm in town.  Just a funny story, I took those shoes to my shoe repair guy to get some new lifts put on and asked him what kind of leather they were.  He said "not leather".  Well, I was horrified thinking I had bought very nice knock offs!  However, he smiled and said "snakeskin" and I was so thrilled!  They are beautiful! All the best, and I will see you next time I'm in NYC!

Just a quick note to let you know Kristin and I had a fabulous time We loved everywhere we went and all the great purchases we made, Believe me, I will continue to tell others about your service and that they should definitely make it a part of their NY experience. Thank you again! Marlys We had a wonderful time. . As my older daughter, Shay, is completing her degree in Fashion Marketing, this was a good opportunity for her to see some of the inside places. My younger daughter, Chelsea, who is totally about business, really enjoyed spending money while saving money. I plan to request a custom service the next time I am in NYC. Thanks again for the exciting experience.

Hi, there,First of all, my daughter and I took your Garment district tour last Xmas and loved it so much that we booked it again this year!!!
Thanks very much,

Hi Pamela, Before too much time passes I would just like to thank you so much for our lovely day with Phyllis.. we went on the tour Wed. Dec. 10th in the garment district.  We had sooo much fun, Phyllis was such a lovely helpful guide, both my sister and I just loved her.  We found many lovely things to take home with us, and we have already recommended you and her to our friends.  We will be returning to NY next Dec. around the same time, and am looking forward to booking another tour with you.  Thanks again for fitting us in that day.. I know you were doing a jungling act to fit us in, and we really appreciate it.  Happy Holidays to you and please thank our wonderful guide again for the lovely day.

I just wanted to thank you so much for the great shopping experience we had on our shopping tour in New York this weekend over the Columbus Holiday! It was such a wonderful time and I loved everyone's hospitality and friendliness. I have already been spreading the word back home!! I hope to do it again soon! Thanks so much for a great oppurtunity! And for being so patient with our country ways!! :)

Good Morning,
I just wanted to comment on my experience with the tour that I took on October13, 2008. Our guide was AMAZING. She was very warm and friendly and so accommodating by staying late to make sure we got into all the places we wanted to. We had such a great day thanks to her, and she went leaps and bounds out of her way to make our New York shopping experience a wonderful one. We have called our travel agent and recommended your tour and your company to her for future clients booking trips to New York City. Thank you again for a wonderful experience, and a great addition to our trip.

Hi Pam,
Just wanted to let you know  my daughter Rianna and I had a fabulous time on Friday. Our tour guided took us to just the right places so we did not go home broke but satisfied. We have already spread the word to other shoppers like ourselves. Being back in the garment district after many years of being out of the Fur business brought back many fond memories. Again,we had so much fun we are already planning future trips.
Thank you,
Jaclyn and Rianna Polin

Dear Pamela,
I just wanted to let you know how much my aunt and I enjoyed our recent shopping excursion! As tourists, we were unfamiliar with the garment district and how the sample sales work. We were showed the ropes and it gave us the confidence to navigate on our own the remaining days of our trip. We would recommend your tours to anyone who is coming to New York to shop!
Thanks again!

Pam, I just wanted to let you know that Katie and I had a fantastic time last week for our accessories shopping trip. I will definitely schedule again.
Kathy Turner

I just wanted to let you know what a great time my husband and I had on the shopping trek.  Who knew that all these fabulous finds were right in our own backyard?!  We will probably sign up for the Uptown Trek in October.

Just a quick note to say thank you for a very fun and "fruitful" (and a bit expensive) shopping excursion. Megan and I had a wonderful time. I think our last stop with BFC was Megan's favorite if for no other reason than she got to meet another "Lebanese" woman (other than her mom and grandmother) that is smart, honest and fun. Of course, it helped that we found some very unique pieces for her wardrobe. AK was also the perfect fit, not for just Megan, but for a boutique that I shop regularly here in Arlington, TX. I asked permission to pass their information on to the owner.
Take care and thanks,
Jeannine Lee

Hi Pam
I would be remiss if I didn't let you know just how wonderful the trip on 05 29 was!! The information, schedule, and overall camaraderie was just great!! If I hadn't done your tour, I would not have believed that a tour trip to Manhattan would impress me - I've lived in the suburbs forever."
