Bringing in the New Year - 2017

The Past - Aftermath of Shopping

The Future - Click Away in Peace 






The holidays of 2016 are coming to a close after joyously imbibing with family and friends.  After the yearly hoping for a"Norman Rockwell" affair, which by the way rarely occurs, signals the beginning of the annual gift return madness.   The lunacy among the eager crowds seeking out parking and bumping into one another on a mission to return gifts and snap up something new and shiny can end in frustration or a mild breakdown. Yet with a click or a touch the chaos is simply and wonderfully gone. Just what is on sale, what is trendy and classic for the New Year's holiday or what is a great steal or deal after the swirl of boxes, paper and ribbons have been thrown away? Ahhh the games have commenced.  Yes, thank you for the lovely gifts but now is the time of shopping for the New Year of 2017.  Partake online and pray tell avoid the crowds.
