Given that we prefer to do our shopping online, the total retail insanity that strikes each year after Thanksgiving never fails to surprise us. This year, the New York Post reports that people were literally falling down the stairs at Best Buy and throwing elbows to get the last pair of Tory Burch flats at Bergdorf. What has gotten into them?
We hope our readers took the easy route and stayed home sipping mimosas while finding the best buys on their computer rather than in the malls. I mean, really…we tracked down those coveted shoes online at Neiman Marcus, Shopbop, and Saks. Sure, supplies are dwindling quickly, but they're there now, and we'd say buying here is much easier than going at it tooth and nail with hordes of crazed suburbanites. As for the electronics, a gorgeous Samsung television that will have your husband worshipping the ground you walk on for the next five years can be yours on sale without leaving the house–just click over to Amazon.
