Today begins the American season of winter holiday shopping. Some of you may venture into stores.
I’ll wave to you from my long-suffering sofa. I probably won’t even start Christmas purchasing for another week, if we’re honest. But some of you, nay many of you, are probably way more organized.
For you, then, to whom I bow, some online sales for these next few days. Which I refuse to speak of as Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday because, what are we, bandits and robots? Come on commercial America, where’s the holly jolly genius in our copywriting now?
I’ve organized these into categories: Charity, Retailers We Know And Love, Interesting Brands I Have Worn And Talked About, and The High WASP Home.
This belongs to Zappos. Today through Monday Zappos will donate 10 meals per order placed on Zappos.com to Feeding America. If you need a new pair of Stuart Weitzman black satin pumps, or shoes for your ever-growing children, now is the time.
