Saturday’s Teen Fashion and Fun Tour was great, not only for the teen, but for the adults too! There were 3 ladies—one being a young lady of about thirteen. I can honestly say that all three of them enjoyed the tour immensely. From Fifth Avenue’s Abercrombie and Bendel’s to Noho’s and Soho’s Joyce Leslie and TopShop, they shopped, shopped, shopped! They enjoyed the fashion videos I showed them along the way and seemed to gain a lot of knowledge from them. (They were making comments about info from the videos when they visited some of the stores.)
It was a rainy day but fortunately, with the spot-to-spot transportation provided, it didn’t really make a difference. They barely even needed their umbrellas.
As usual, in the West Village, I picked up their cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery while they browsed the Marc Jacobs Special Items Store. The ladies told me that they had been to the Georgetown Bakery outside of DC and were anxious to compare the cupcakes to Magnolia’s.
When they finished their shopping, we dropped them off at their final destination, which was Chelsea Piers. (Sometimes I can drop people off at a place of their choice as long as it’s in Manhattan and time permits.) On the way to the Piers, they ate their cupcakes and came to the conclusion that Magnolia’s icing was much better but that if they combined it with Georgetown’s cake, you would have the perfect cupcake!
As the tour came to an end, the ladies said they had a wonderful time and that they would have never found the stores I took them to on their own. In fact, they were in Soho the day before the tour and said they had no idea about TopShop (which was one of their favorites) and passed it up. They also absolutely loved having their own transportation around the city. The commented on how nice it was to not have to walk everywhere. They also said they would tell all their friends about ShopNYC Tours and that I should consider starting tours in San Francisco (which is where they were from.) I think I’ll have to stick to NYC for now, but it’s definitely a possibility in the future!
