I've just received an e-mail that literally had me stunned. It seems, E-bay is planning on opening a physical retail space during the holiday season on West 57th Street in NYC. The store is due to open on November 20th and will be a 5,500 square foot space housing apparel from popular fashion brands. When the article went on to list these brands and I saw Anthropologie on the list...well all kind of day dreaming set in. Most e-bay items tend to sell for under $40. Picture yourself surround by Anthropologie stuff with Target-like price tags. I'm getting dizzy just thinking about it. Then of course somewhere in my fantasy I hear a stampede of heels and crazed women with wild hair grabbing stuff from under my nose. Oh dear. Where was I?
Oh yes, some of the other brands mentioned were, Norman Kamali, Michael Kors handbags, L.A.M.B., Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue and Vera Wang Princess fragrances. That's not mentioning electronics and home items.
Sounds good in theory, but am I ready to brave a mad herd of discount holiday shoppers?
