Happy Fall Everyone! Some of you are wondering what happened to Philadelphia Steals & Deals. Some of you could not care less. Well for those of you who missed me the truth be told I was enjoying the three S's - socializing sunshine and swimming. At the time I was not, I was out there working selling and listing Real Estate but I did do some shopping but mostly in small local boutiques and online. I found most of the big brand stores had inventory from years past nothing new.
Just recently I shopped at a small boutique that has shoes and specialty clothes. Called "Hot Foot" and they carry clothes called "Talk of the Walk" The owner told me there would be a shortage again this year of newer fashion items. What they did have would be very expensive. So her advice was to buy now as inventory would be low.
When I went into stores many shelves were empty or they had old items stocked. Usually, Fall items are plentiful this time of year, but if you look and know your fashion many of the items are from previous years;
Gas prices have come down but food prices are still high.
There was some eating out with friends and now I have to watch my weight because I overindulged but honestly it was great fun.
Fall plants are on my shopping list, especially mums. So far places that had great prices last season were disappointing this season
Real Estate is still a seller's market. The market has just slowed down.
