The Savvy Shopper

So long, goodbye, a fond farewell....
I bid you adieu!

It is with sadness in my heart that I am telling you farewell. I am hanging up my shopping shoes. I have been writing the Savvy Shopper for two and a half years. We have traveled from Naples to Bonita Springs, Estero, Ft. Myers Beach, Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island, Matlache and Cape Coral. It has been quite a ride.
We shopped for clothes for women, children and men, bridal, underwear, shoes, jewelry, hand bags and accessories, gadgets, lighting, hardware, furniture, books, cameras, plants, eye glasses, pottery, art, all kinds of consignments even gourmet grocery stores, party stores, import stores, specialty stores, antique stores, variety stores, department stores. It they had something to sell....I was there! After all I am called The Savvy Shopper for a reason!
We talked about the latest fashion statement and what to wear. Where to shop for the latest trends in furniture. The l hard to find little boutiques that were always fun to write about. Shoes that make a statement! You know how much I love shoes! Unusual finds in jewelry. Great bargains. Special finds in kids clothes...I love to shop for my granddaughters. Unique gifts. Shops that carried the unusual like the one on Ft. Myers Beach that carried all kinds of ship related things. I went into a lot of stores that wouldn't let me write about them, they said I had to have permission from corporate. Snooze you loose!! I just moved on to the next one. I have come across some wonderful boutiques, shops and stores filled with fabulous finds and great people inside! I hope I hit on some that you were interested in and you enjoyed reading my Savvy Shopper each week! I covered the waterfront and enjoyed every minute of it.
I am sure I will have to shop for a new pair of shopping shoes in the future as my kids say, I was born to shop! Oh yes, I will be out there again, I just don't know when. I am having surgery tomorrow and don't know how long it will take to recover. For all you shopaholics out there, keep on shopping, it's so much fun, and helps the economy too. With that said, my fellow shoppers, I bid you adieu!
The Savvy Shopper,
Jeanne Vogt
