They say that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year – and it certainly is magical. But, when you’re a dedicated bargain shopper like me, I say the days after Christmas are the most wonderful time of the year! As people recover from their holiday food comas and stores try to clear their inventory, many retailers offer great year-end sales. Be sure to add the Holiday Shops at Winter Village in Bryant Park to your shopping list, as they’re still in the park through January 4th and offering some great deals for bargain hunters and the well-prepared looking to get a jump on next year’s holidays!
Here’s a round-up of some of my favorites. But, this list is by no means comprehensive. Pro tip: Be sure to ask shop vendors directly about their sales, as many aren’t advertised and more are being added all the time.
There are a variety of ornament shops in the park, and now that their shining moment has passed for 2014, you can get a jump on next year with some big savings. Here are 4 shops offering 50% off their entire stock:
• Once Upon a Christmas (kiosk D1)
• Santa’s Workshop (kiosk E7)
• The North Pole (kiosk K11)
• It’s Always Christmas in NY (kiosk L12)
|Santa's Workshop is one of the Christmas-themed shops offering mega discounts on seasonal gear.|
Christmas has passed, but cold winter weather will (unfortunately) continue to dry out our skin for several more months. Check out these moisture-minded shops for solutions to your winter weather woes:
