Shopping under the chandeliers
The Picasso repro is in needle point. How ’70s can you get?

Vintage belts and look at those Coach bags
If you can’t come in person, most of the ever changing selection of vendors sell on line

But wait! There’s more. If you’re in town during the week, check out Christmas Village (also open on weekends) which pops up in Love Park every year after Thanksgiving and stays open until the last Sunday in December. You can go ice skating at Dilworth Park after you’ve finished shopping.
