Philadelphila Steals & Deals Holiday Edition by HelpfulHannah

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

This week I spent my time wrapping my presents thankfully I was done shopping. What an exhausting month it was, Not just for shopping but also in Real Estate. Then again, if you watch the news here on the East Coast Covid is in the news again making everyone conscious of mask wearing and becoming vaccinated. There are some restaurants where indoor dining you must show proof that you are vaccinated in order to eat there in fact, that will be law sometime in January in Philadelphia just for indoor dining not outdoor dining. New York City to watch the New Year Ball drop the same thing . Won't it be wonderful when this all passes?   

Well, enough of this gloom and doom, let's talk about last minute Steals and DEALS  Coach outlet is still has great deals and you may not have gift in hand you can offer the reward in a gift card showing the gift. Some of the gifts are 15 % off at check out and if you are not an insider and join you will receive a 10% discount code plus shipping is free . Last year I purchased the most beautiful gloves so nice I am afraid to wear them at a fantastic price FYI softest leather ever.

Saks Fifth Ave is having a big sale you can shop online, first time shoppers receive an additional 10% off their first purchase - great make up here 

Speaking of make-up Perricone MD is having their  huge sale 60% off why pay full price this is also an online event with code 21 .I will post the link many of you may have received Mastercard or American Express gift cards great place to take advantage 

Saks off 5th is even better there sale is amazing limited supply for Burbury kids $99 but that is not all they have up to 50%off of boots for him and her This is one of my very favorite places to shop in store and online for special gifts at great prices. I missed shopping here last year . 

Big Lots my niece told be she got the best deal there a beautiful decanter with 6  matching glasses so gorgeous for $12  this is her new favorite store .

Let's talk a little Real Estate as last week I settled a condo in the Villa's of Delaire Landing . It was a 2 BR 1.5 Bath condo on the first floor . There are not that many units in this section . They are close to the river have their own entrances and are very cozy. They are also sound proof . The kitchens are compact there is a separate dining area and living area . A very spacious laundry room.  Both the bedrooms are nice sizes with the master having a sliding door with access to a rear patio . This unit did need updating was sold for $189,000 but did have a wonderful location and was an end unit 

 There usually are big sales after Christmas we shall see come back and see 

I will be shopping for an all in one printer so if you have any ideas,  I am also in the market for a instapot cooker or a plain old crock pot . Microwaves may also be on the list . Let me know if there is anything you are looking for . 

Have a Jolly Merry Christmas to Everyone and look out for Santa

Hello Hannah - it seems as if this has been a good season for you in the steals and deals department as well as in other parts of your world.   Happy Christmas Eve.  Now the question is - will you be having an After-Holiday Edition of Bargain Bonanza???

Merry Christmas  Eve  Michael Jacobs  Oh yes, I will be writing this post every week .  The way the economy is I feel people are always looking for something. I know I am.  In fact, when I moved my all in one decided not to communicate with my new laptop. No matter what was done would not work.  So after days and hour a new one is on the list

Congratulations on your year-end closing, Hannah. Wishing you many more in the months to come. There's nothing I like better than a good sale, but secretly am very happy that I really need nothing and that our grands are of an age where all they want is a gift card and some chocolate. :)))

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  Yes reality hits and we must be aware but life goes on.  There are always things we need in our life aren't there. I know right now I need an all in one printer.  I am going to be checking prices and reviews . There are also birthdays coming up for a dear friend who had me over for Christmas that has an awful coffee maker so I will be looking for a good inexpensive gift .

Merry Christmas my friend
