Shopping in the Calm After the Storm

O.K.– The VIRGINIA SHOPPER knows there has been some weirdly strange weather in Virginia lately with earthquakes, hurricanes, torrential rains, wind and flooding.  PHEW!  . About the time I was asking myself if I should move to California, the sun came out, the air cleared and now we are back to the beautiful Virginia I know and love.  It’s kind of like having a baby – I am forgetting the pain!  But it’s true – very little “prowling” went on to search for the best of the best in gifts, accessories, or home décor across Virginia

So, The VIRGINIA SHOPPER is back to shopping, but staying near to home for awhile.   Hopefully, everyone in our state and beyond are recuperating from nature’s capricious tricks and back to shopping, either “downtown” or online.  The idea is to cover what we  missed.  Did we miss any great sales?   Take a look at what The SHOPPER found marked waaaay down that can be ordered online or purchased in-store:
