well, i didn't buy a thing and the shelves are still pretty sparsely stocked, but i have to say that the Threshold line of home goods and the Nate Berkus stuff certainly won me over.

and, finally, Sonia Kashuk in Canada!!!

the store that used to be there had shelves almost up to the ceiling, so it's weird to be in there and have it so open. and i think it's safe to say that the biggest hit with the kids are the cart lanes on the escalators!

i was disappointed with the lack of selection in shoes and handbags and there were no plus sizes in the clothes, and the food selection wasn't all that different than a regular grocery store here, but the prices were pretty darn good!

Speaking of frosting... I bought some funky cup cake liners at Michaels and I want to use them. I need to devise an Easter cup cake plan. One of my nephews and my great nephew in law will be over, and I want to make something they will enjoy.
