THE SAVVY SHOPPER
A candy store for grown up girls!
Best of Everything!
I am sure by now all of you have been in Best of Everything, well, maybe some of the newcomers haven't found the secret yet. I hadn't been in for some time and decided to see what's new. The inventory is constantly changing. This store is brimming with merchandise and has 250,000 customers who shop here annually! That's a lot of shoppers! It is the best costume jewelry, accessories and gift store you can find with amazing prices, lower than their competitors!
The day I was in, plenty of ladies were busy with their velvet shopping carts (trays) loading them up. There is such a selection you don't know what to put on those carts! Most of our tourists have gone home for the season but the store was very busy.
There is so much to look at from top end costume jewelry to sterling and many look a-likes
You can find any color you are looking for. If you are trying to find something to go with a special outfit this would be the place to go. The tables are laden with affordable designer inspired creations. The Swarovski pins were only $36. also find Swarovski purses. Colored pins only $5. Find many things at that price, bracelets, earrings, key chains etc.
What a great selection of pearls, tons of them in all lengths and colors. Rhinestones to suit any princess! The silver rose pendent, earrings and rings caught my eye. Very different. The popular stretch bracelets come in all colors.
Besides the table after table of jewelry they have girley jeweled cell phone covers, tables of watches from a tailored watch to one with lots of bling. Really cute reading glasses and some funky sunglasses that look like golf balls and other fun sunglasses. You will also find unusual decorated denim jackets, one of a kind sweaters, shawls and wraps. I bought a really pretty black wrap that slips over your head, crocheted with tiny black beads. It dresses up any little black dress and was only $20.
I love the selection of hand bags and evening bags. There is every color combination and they carry my favorite, Mary Francis appliquéd handbags that are so unusual. There are tiny hand bags for evening, all sparkly with sequins or beads that carry little more that a lipstick, really cute!
You can find something for everyone on your gift list. Quilted totes with bamboo handles, jeweled thongs, all kinds of hair accessories, all shapes of trinket boxes in darling little creatures, paper napkins, stuff toys to please any child, cards, even birthday cakes for over the hill.
There is a whole case of beautiful serving dishes in silver in all sizes, what a great gift!
Lots of things for hostess gifts too. So it is a lot more than just jewelry, with the look of the real thing at a price you can afford!
Allow yourself plenty of time to browse as there is so much to see. This is a place the locals take their visitors as a "must see" when visiting S.W. Florida!
