Happy Thanksgiving from LaxAllStars.com! Thanksgiving is a day reserved for family, friends, rest, and relaxation; a day full of great conversations, food you’ve missed for a year, and smiles all around.

We weren’t given Thursday to plan for Friday, but those ads get our attention and we start strategizing our plan of attack for holiday shopping. The next thing we know, we’re rewinding ads on television and contemplating setting our alarms for 5am.
To save you from that ache and pain, we’re going to share a few of the best lacrosse-specific online deals we could find during this time of year. So sit back, relax, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and sleep until noon on Friday instead of waiting in line outside of Best Buy.
Note: While we spent lots of time searching for the best deals to share with you, it’s quite possible that we missed one or two. If you know of good deal that we overlooked, please feel free to drop information about it in the comments section below.
1) 25% Off Orders Over $100 at Lacrosse.com
Lacrosse.com, a leading online lacrosse retailer, is offering 25% off any order over $100. That kind of deal makes this the perfect time to double check your gear supply and if needed, order a new lacrosse head or two. A $200 purchase will cost $150 when promo code “3THANKS” is used at checkout. Lacrosse.com is also offering free shipping on orders over $100. We’re not sure if you’re able to use two codes at the same time, but it’s certainly worth giving a try. The code for free shipping is “3FS100”.
2) Free Shipping at Lacrosse Unlimited
Lacrosse Unlimited is offering free shipping on all orders throughout Thanksgiving weekend. Just use coupon code “TURKEY12” at checkout, and you’ll get standard ground shipping for free. LU is the world’s largest lacrosse retailer, so they have a huge selection of gear to choose from, and it’s easy to find stuff in their new online store.
Here’s the way I look at it – If you don’t have to pay shipping for an online purchase, then you’re basically shopping in a retail store. In some cases, it may very well be more affordable to shop online than it is to shop in person. When you shop online, you’re not paying for gas!
3) Maverik Cascade Starter Package from ComLax
The Maverik Cascade Boys Lacrosse Starter Package includes a helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads and a stick for $159.99. Free shipping is also included, and you get a choice between the Maverik Bazooka or Maverik Bad Boy lacrosse sticks. We’ve heard some interesting things about the Bazooka in the past. It was Maverik’s first lacrosse head and also one of the most durable heads on the market when it was originally released.
4) Free Shipping at Lax.com
Lax.com, another leading online lacrosse retailer, is offering free shipping on any purchase within next 48 hours. Lax.com is known for having low prices and a great assortment of gear to choose from, and with no order restrictions, you have the chance to spend as little or as much as you want and still get free shipping. Not bad at all!
5) Holiday Grab Bags
Last but not least, our 2012 Holiday Grab Bags. Yep, shameless self promotion right here. But hey, we’re offering a really good deal. This year’s Holiday Grab Bags feature products from some of the best and most innovative lacrosse brands on the market. The things you’ll receive in your Grab Bag are stylish, reliable, and some are even useful for improving your game.
Our Holiday Grab Bag sale kicked off earlier this week with last year’s customers receiving an early bird special and getting first dibs on the lot.
On Black Friday, the fellas over at The Lacrosse Network will be launching a video to explain more about what’s inside this year’s Holiday Grab Bags. Stay tuned!

Report of Possible Shooter Causes LAX Panic – NBC Los Angeles
A report of a possible armed person inside Los Angeles International Airport led to evacuations from a terminal and grounded flights for about 50 minutes Thursday night.
Ultimately no shots were fired and no weapon was recovered, authorities said. Operations resumed after the scare, which appeared to stem from an altercation between two men who were detained by Los Angeles Airport Police Division officers
Officers were called about 7:30 p.m. to Terminal 1, according to an airport official. One of the two men apparently felt threatened, possibly believing the other had a weapon, said Lt. Karla Rodriguez, an airport police spokeswoman.
Elyse Craig and others hid in a closet after word spread of an active shooter. Authorities said there was no public safety threat.
“We closed the door and they were like what’s going on? I was like, I don’t know,” Craig said. “Everyone just said run. We just ran. And I didn’t even grab my phone or anything.”
They stayed int he closet until they heard a knock on the door and someone gave the all clear.
The reports caused about 300 people inside the airport to flee onto the tarmac. One of the two men detained remained in custody early Friday for a mental health evaluation, an LAX spokesman said. The other was released.
“All of a sudden, people started whipping around the corner, just running with fear and terror in their eyes, and I was like, ‘what is happening, what’s going on?’ And they were like, ‘there’s an active shooter,'” said passenger Chantel Mohn.
Two people were injured during the evacuation and were treated at the scene by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics. One of those injured was taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.
The reports prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to ground all flights at LAX, though an airport official said about 8:20 p.m. that flights on the south side of the airport were allowed to resume service.
“It’s kind of like yelling ‘fire’ or something at a theater, it’s the same thing here at the airport,” Rodriguez said. “We take security very seriously.”
The airport tweeted a little after 9 p.m. that all runways were open, though delays persisted in Terminal 1 during the night.
Transportation Security Administration personnel were called to the scene to help move people back to their terminal.
One of the men detained by police was released Thursday night and another was transported to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation.
Duty-Free: Is it Worth It?
Because you reserved your off-airport parking spot ahead of time with ParkOn, you’ve made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare before your flight departs. You feel relaxed and stress free, thanks to the simple task of using off-site airport parking. Now what should you do with all this extra time? Well it depends on which airport you’re flying out of, but most of your options will involve dining, relaxing, and shopping. If you already ate before leaving to the airport, chances are grabbing another bite to eat might not interest you. Maybe you’ll settle for a drink at the bar, but once you finish, you’ll still want something else to do. What could there possibly be to do at the airport that can’t be really be done outside of there? Cue in duty-free shopping!
What is Duty Free?
Whether you’re an avid traveler or travel only once a year, you have probably seen a duty-free shop at the airport, on a cruise ship, or even in a border town. But what does “duty-free” actually mean? “Duty” is the tax you pay for bringing a product across international borders, so a “duty-free shop” is a retail outlet whose goods are exempt from the payment of local or national taxes, but the products sold must be traveling internationally. In other words, if you’re flying out of the country, you can shop at a duty-free retailer and not pay taxes on it; all you need is your passport and boarding pass handy. However, keep in mind of some duty-free shopping rules. The United States might impose taxes on you when you return from certain countries, or if the monetary value of the items that you purchased exceeds a certain amount. For example, if you purchased 3 liters of alcohol from the United Kingdom, you will be taxed the other 2 liters once you come back into the United States. To view what countries and items get taxed and what doesn’t, visit the CBP Customs Duty Information guide. Because duty-free shops don’t charge tax, their products are also somewhat less expensive than regular retailers. This is why duty-free shopping is so popular in some parts of the world.
Is Duty Free Shopping at the Airport Worth It?
I bet you’re wondering if duty-free is even worth it. The answer, however, is not black and white. It really just depends on where you’re traveling from and what you’re purchasing. For example, when you’re leaving from the United States, duty-free shop purchases on alcohol and tobacco will have significant savings. Alcohol and tobacco are notorious for having sin tax (you can thank prohibition for that), so purchasing these items might be worth it. When you do purchase these items, the cashier will keep your purchases along with a copy of your boarding pass and ensure it arrives to your gate as a carryon item. A flight attendant will hand you your purchase before you enter the jetway to the airplane. Buying duty free alcohol at the airport is a definitely an item that you will get a good deal on.
When it comes to fashion items, such as clothing, fragrances, cosmetics, and sunglasses, the discounts are all hit or miss. Store owners will purposely raise the prices but still make it seem like they’re discounted to trick travelers they are getting a good deal because they are not being taxed. However, for cosmetics and fragrances, you can sometimes find gift sets or sets that have been discontinued for a great deal. For example, at one of the duty-free shops at MIA, I was able to find a double set of the 1.7oz Estee Lauder Night Repair Serum for $155 flat, when two of these alone comes out to $200 plus tax! If you have a favorite fragrance and know how much you would spend on it at your local retailer, check out a duty-free store before departing to see if you can snag a deal on it.
What about other products, like electronics and foods? For food, you won’t usually get a good deal because airports generally have overpriced food anyways, so duty-free shops won’t lower their prices to be able to compete with airport food prices. If you can find what you’re looking for at the city’s local supermarket, let’s say a chocolate bar or a bag of chips you fell in love with while there, it’s probably best to buy it at the supermarket before heading to the airport.
As for techs and gadgets, for the most part it’s just not worth it. In the United States, there are always huge sales on electronics throughout the year, such as Black Friday and back-to-school deals. These sales could easily save you 20 to 30 percent on electronics like laptops, cameras, and home items. Online retailers like Amazon also have amazing deals on electronics. Aside from that, duty-free shops don’t worry about keeping up with the latest technology, so if you do see a good deal on an item, it could be outdated or discontinued. Another thing to consider while shopping duty free or internationally in general is the exchange rate for the country’s currency compared to your own. Remember the weight of your dollar!
After reading this, you probably think shopping duty-free is a bit of a hassle. Luckily, the website dutyfreeaddict.com can give you the breakdown of all duty-free items that are worth it or not. Here you can compare prices and rank all the bargains at popular travel destinations. So before you stress, put your knowledge to the test and check out what items will get you the most bang for your buck.
Duty-Free Shops at LAX
Los Angeles International Airport is one of the largest international gateways in the world, meaning more international travelers fly through here than almost any other airport in the world, and for duty-free retailers, this is a huge deal. More international travelling means there’s a possibility more people will buy duty-free before flying out of the country. If you’re ever flying from LAX, here are all the duty-free stores you can shop at:
- Store: DFS Duty Free Location: TBIT – South Concourse
- Store: DFS Duty Free Location: TBIT – North Concourse
- Store: DFS Duty Free Location: Bus Gates
- Store: DFS Duty Free – Fashion and Watches Location: TBIT – Great Hall
- Store: DFS Duty Free – Beauty and Spirits Location: TBIT – Great Hall
- Store: Burberry Boutique Location: TBIT – Great Hall
- Store: Gucci Boutique – DFS Duty Free Location: TBIT – Great Hall
- Store: Hermes Boutique Location: TBIT – Great Hall
- Store: DFS Duty Free Location: Terminal 2 – Gate 24A
- Store: DFS Duty Free Location: Terminal 3 – Gate 39
- Store: DFS Duty Free Location: Terminal 6 – Gate 64B
As you may have guessed, most of the DFS Duty Free stores will be located at the Tom Bradley International Terminal, because it is where most international airlines depart from. These duty-free stores have a lot of merchandise, such as designer clothing and accessories, jewelry and watches, cosmetics, fragrances, liquor, and other goods. You can check out DFS Duty Free and what they sell on their LAX site.
So, the next time you are flying out of Los Angeles International Airport, or any other airport for that matter, and arrive early thanks to reserving a parking spot ahead of time with ParkOn, be sure to check out the duty-free stores it has to offer, along with the airport amenities, lounges, and restaurants. You never know what kind of deals you may find!

Krylatskoe.ru | Money | Anyone who knows Forex knows everything. Five Basic Rules for Beginner Players
Paradoxically, the Forex market, despite its controversial reputation due to the numerous “black” Forex brokers, continues to haunt the minds and cause excitement for everyone who is ready to risk part of the capital for the sake of the coveted win.Indeed, the opportunity to make money on the Forex market, and quite a lot, exists, however, as well as the likelihood of losing all. And it’s not a matter of luck, but more of perseverance, experience, curiosity and even reasonable courage. To minimize risks, you need to follow five simple rules that will fit, rather, to novice players, and not to the hardened speculators who have already managed to fill numerous shots.
Before moving on to listing the rules, you need to understand exactly how trading on the Forex market will be carried out in order to close the first, but most important, information gap.The fact, that any individual simply does not have access to the very ability to conduct transactions on the currency exchange. This is not the same as going to a bank and buying, for example, US dollars. To trade Forex, an intermediary is needed, which are forex brokers. It is he, on the instructions or instructions of the client, who will carry out transactions with currency pairs. And here the most interesting and most difficult part begins: the search for a normal and more or less honest intermediary or even a business partner.
Rule # 1.Do not believe, do not be afraid, specify
Where there is money, there will always be those who want to take it, and often in a not entirely honest way. It is not difficult to recognize a fraudster or at least one who simply does not speak – it is enough remember the golden truth that free cheese is only in a mousetrap. Forex brokers will not work at a loss, so the promises of the “golden mountains” are clearly not worth believing. As well as not you should be afraid to say no after hearing some crazy and profitable offer.You should at least take time out to think things over in silence, filling in the blanks, exploring the Internet.
And here specialized sites will come to the rescue, which aggregate information about brokers found on the network, “pull out” customer reviews, analyze official documents of participants trades, make up ratings and rankigni. However, this rule works in all cases, even when a future investor chooses a banal bank for a deposit, a management company to buy shares Mutual funds or wants to see the real top binary options brokers.At the same time, it is highly desirable to use more than one, and several such sites, in order to collect a really complete picture of the participants, to understand who is on the “white” and who is on the “black” list. True, not a single company can do without negative reviews, even the most loyal and honest.
Rule # 2. Learn Smart
If, after fulfilling rule number 1, the desire to trade on the Forex market has not disappeared, then you can proceed to rule number 2 and get involved in education. Why is it better to start learning only after as a novice investor will study the players of the Forex market, and not at the beginning.The fact is that numerous positive and negative reviews, as well as a huge amount of specific terminology, can scare away. And that’s okay. It is better at first to at least roughly understand what kind of game you can get involved in, and if the sensation received does not cause a sharp rejection, then it makes sense to continue.
This approach can be compared to the desire to become a pilot. High salary, romance, the opportunity to see the world, etc. beckons, for example, school graduates. However, before training or flying academies will start training, the applicant goes through a fairly tough selection.It is necessary to have not only a rare health for a modern person, but also excellent physical training and literally brilliant school certificate. Paradoxical as it may seem, but it is this stage that weeds out 90% of schoolchildren who want to fly. And only 10%, who learned the selection rules in advance, start prepare intensively for admission.
So in the case of Forex – you need to learn to trade only after having studied the rules that exist in the market, made sure that it has its own scammers, learned not only success stories, but and read the real stories of the losing speculators.
There is no consensus on how and where to study. Many, and this is not necessarily the right way, start by watching numerous videos and tutorials. Significantly fewer novice players start reading specialized literature, combining it with watching the same videos. The most optimal way is to complete the monthly exchange trading courses, which almost all large investment companies have it. They do not teach how to trade on Forex, but give a general idea of the stock market, trading, investment instruments (stocks, bonds, futures, currency pairs, etc.). Having received the necessary basis, having understood the theory, it will be much easier to move on to watching the same numerous training videos or to reading specialized literature. At least you won’t have to “float” in terminology.
But you need to understand that it will not be possible to learn to trade in one day or even in one week. You need to set aside at least a month for the learning process. During this period, the picture in my head is more or less add up. Everything else depends on desire and discipline.
Rule # 3.Adequate target
The goal of making a million US dollars is fine, but clearly inadequate at the first stage. In general, as the currency speculators who have already passed their way recommend, to think about profit at the beginning of the path highly undesirable. The goal of making money should not overlap all others, which are more appropriate for beginners. It may be a desire to improve your financial literacy, gain new knowledge, broaden your horizons, acquire skills that in the future will allow you to become financially independent and work exclusively for yourself.Even the goal of “satisfying your curiosity” is more reasonable, than becoming a millionaire by the end of the year.
Having decided on a reasonable goal, it is necessary to clearly understand that a good result is impossible without falls. This means that fixing losses should become an acceptable part of the movement towards the main goal. and not cause serious concern.
Rule # 4. Say goodbye to money
To start trading, you need a certain minimum, or initial capital. As a general rule, which has existed for several years, we are talking about an amount equal to $ 500-1000.USA, outside depending on the course at the current time. If a forex broker accepts clients with sums of 10 thousand dollars or more to his club, then it is better for a novice player to find another intermediary, and not save up the required amount. The fact is that the best strategy in this period of time, when the player is only getting involved in the process, is to psychologically “say goodbye” to the invested amount.
The speculators who have gone this way recommend to consider the down payment as a kind of payment for new knowledge.Investments may pay off later, but it is better not to think about it at the beginning of the journey, morally having said goodbye to the original amount. Many beginners in Forex are wondering, and if they “enter” with a slightly larger amount, for example, from 5 thousand dollars, and how justified it is. The answer is obvious – it is justified, provided that you are ready to simply lose these 5 thousand.
It is for this reason, and we can talk not only about Forex, you should never “play” or invest the last money, especially not to start your speculative path with borrowed funds.Then any loss, without which success is impossible, will become something more than a payment for new knowledge and sensations.
It should be noted that many forex brokers provide newbies with a so-called demo account, where not live, but virtual money is used. Losing, like winning, will also be virtual. But, as practice shows, learning to trade with a demo account is more like “having fun” than really experiencing all the delights of the trading itself. In addition, psychologically, you can lose real landmarks, since, risking virtual money, the player is more relaxed and dispersed, in contrast to those moments when it comes to real money.
In addition, some brokers, and you can learn about this in the process of fulfilling rule number 1, play along with such clients, so that they feel “how easy and fast it is earn playfully “. When it comes to real trading with real money, the picture of the world can change dramatically, which will lead to a quick loss of the entire invested amount.
Rule No. 5. Forget about luck and excitement
Surprisingly, but playing on Forex, success is more often achieved by those who do not consider themselves lucky.Moreover, luck and bargaining, and, moreover, excitement, are simply incompatible. with the very idea of bidding. Everything from strategy to profit or loss is an extremely cold and balanced calculation. For example, successful traders always act exclusively according to a previously thought out plan or strategy, without giving vent to emotions and flair that periodically arises from nowhere. Of course, the plan needs to be adjusted, depending on the changed conditions or acquired new knowledge (and, possibly, insider information, which, by the way, is illegal – approx.ed.). But such changes should not be based on feelings, emotions, feelings of one’s own exclusivity.
It is noteworthy, but many novice players create for themselves a whole system of signs by which they judge whether a trading day will be successful or not. You need to understand that if someone is lucky, then there is definitely no other, which means that ideal conditions do not exist. Frequent losses cannot be attributed to omens, bad days, etc. This is a great signal that something needs to be changed in strategies, study in more detail the reasons for unsuccessful transactions, perhaps fill in some knowledge gaps.If the loss is attributed to some signs, constantly looking for patterns from category “which feet to get up from” or “what breakfast to make so that the day is set”, you can safely close your trading account and get carried away with collecting stamps or postcards. Investments with this approach are simply pointless.90,000 What was Walmart’s Black Friday back in 1989?
Disaster struck on November 25, 2011. Or at least something very similar to this in the world of retail.US retail giant Walmart found its site collapsing under pressure from as it opened one of the country’s biggest shopping days of the year. Disgruntled online shoppers found their shopping carts empty, their website corrupted, and their login page down, causing many to lose their power as if they were making deals of a lifetime.
It wasn’t Walmart’s first time a site crash, however. And it’s common knowledge that this isn’t the worst thing that happened at Walmart, let alone Black Friday.
In fact, on the same day in 2011, a mother – with two children in tow, we might add – pepper sprayed at least 20 fellows at Walmart Los Angeles, woman was nearly crushed to death at Mesquite Walmart and 90,423 people were shot dead by 90,424 armed robbers outside their northern California.
The manic, bloodthirsty frenzy that followed Thanksgiving has become notoriously dangerous over the past decade, and Walmart seems to be at its epicenter.Full fistfights break out over home appliances and game consoles, as well as traffic jams and violent clashes with the police.
Employees do their best to control the chaos, but even they get caught in the crossfire. In 2018, a Walmart employee hit the counter after a brawl broke out on TV. Ten years before Walmart’s customers were virtually trampled to death in 2008.
In the early days, Black Friday was much more peaceful and calmer.

How exactly did Walmart deal with all this Black Friday craze in the ’80s, before the Internet, sales tracking apps and its recently launched Check with me service delivery?
Well, for example, Black Friday ‘I’ve always been so crazy. In the early days, shopping traditions were orderly, more tamed, and more relaxed. In fact, 30 years ago, in 1989, even when Walmart became , the first-ever retailer reported after-tax profits of $ 1 billion.$ 90,424, its buyers’ Black Friday’s biggest problem is finding a parking spot.

When exactly the term “Black Friday” is associated with the day after Thanksgiving, we’re not quite sure.

A Brief History
In the early days, we mean the good old ’80s, of course. Although the US economy was in recession in the 1980s, it also experienced a period of economic growth that lasted until the early 1990s. So while Black Friday wasn’t as massive a retail event as it is now, it’s no surprise that it was during the decade of great perm and spandex that the day after Thanksgiving began to become America’s biggest shopping holiday.
The term “Black Friday” hasn’However, it has always been synonymous with holidays and massive deals. For some time now, the term we all now associate with peak consumption has been used to refer to the gold market crash in 1869 – triggered by two hot shots on Wall Street buying a lot of gold to artificially raise its price.
The Morning Herald reported that large city taxi and bus drivers used the term to describe the start of Christmas shopping.

When exactly the term “Black Friday” is associated with the day after Thanksgiving, we’re not quite sure. However, History.com tells that the police originally used it to mean “hordes of suburban shoppers and tourists flooded the city ahead of the big army and navy football game held this Saturday every year.” Uniontown, PA’s Morning Newsletter repeated this a couple of decades later, reporting that major city taxi and bus drivers used the term to describe the day that marked the start of Christmas shopping.

However, even in the ’80s, WASN’t’s Black Friday term was widely used by retailers and consumers outside of Pennsylvania.For most of the US, it was still “the day after Thanksgiving.” One thing we do know, however, is that Walmart was already part of this tradition, tempting early shoppers with incentives.

Everything was very civilized
Back to our starting point, Black Friday we know and accept. It has always been. While horror stories of department store crush and brawls turned many people into online shopping and Cyber Monday, 30 years ago, Black Friday was less reckless….
Of course, some things were the same. Back in 1989, lines were also formed at the doors long before they were opened. The shops were filled from wall to wall with people. And, Walmart’s fastest-selling items were also consumer electronics, video games, and televisions, with Nintendo leading the way.
However, people also weren’t elbowed and pushed because of Nintendo games or that year’s hottest kids toy. in the ’80s, Black Friday was more civilized, even with Walmart treating its early risers with poinsettias, free coffee and donuts, and electronics giveaways and Friday morning specials.
There were also key differences in how retail stores operated back then. For example, Walmart won’t open on Thanksgiving until 2011. Thirty or so years ago, it hosted Black Friday shoppers by offering longer hours only per day, usually from 7:00 to 22:00 instead of the usual 9-9. Yes, but people weren’t camp days or even a week ago, so they weren’t sleep deprived while shopping. And well-rested shoppers tend to contribute to a more relaxed atmosphere, which made Black Fridays then more manageable for large retailers like Walmart….
Also, sales weren’t that widespread. These days, large tickets in very limited numbers are now part of the tradition, but they also produce people’s competitive nature and also put them under a lot of pressure. Plus, today’s Black Friday shoppers tend to be just ‘within reach for fear of missing out on great deals, and just decide before buying if they want individual items in their cart or not. Back in the ’80s, none of them was a big thing, so buyers were less competitive overall and more relaxed.
Walmart has taken care of launching a lot of products.

In other words, Black Fridays back then, even at Walmart locations, were much more manageable and easier. All Walmart had to do to get it covered in a year’s biggest day of retailing was to do good deals, offer a couple of special services, bring in about 20 vacation workers, and offer lots of out-of-the-box products.There were no website crashes to deal with or overly enthusiastic customers to separate.

As one Associated Press reporter wrote after a four-hour stint in a department store on Black Friday, most of the shoppers she helped were good, although there were definitely a few.“Who made me finally understand why it’s hard to be always a polite, smiling salesperson.” By these words, she meant a mother who ignored her 8-year-old as she wandered behind the counter, a shopper who asked to see every PopSwatch style available to them so as not to buy anything, and “dozens of people buy gifts that aren’t really know what the recipient would like. ”
They’re annoying, of course, but they’re certainly far from all-out fights, don’t you think?

Notes from Chernovik – LiveJournal
Chapter from the book “Sell Me Anything!” Tatiana Rudina.
If you’re in a bad autumn mood, read this book. I assure you, the blues will be removed as if by hand. And no shopping is needed!;)
My husband and I went to London.
Lesik – this is my husband – took the initiative into his own hands and made a cultural program. Every evening we returned completely exhausted and exhausted by art. And this was repeated every day!
Meanwhile, realizing that there should be at least some material compensation for the non-material damage caused to me, I concentratedly chose this compensation.No, what are you! Not in stores, which, of course, we didn’t even go to. The target was chosen virtually.
I am generally very pragmatic. And so I decided that since there is no sale now, I will not buy things that will later be discounted, but I will buy something that will never be sold. And I decided it was. Burberry’s cloak. Classic. For all time.
And when Lesik finally realized that the time for compensation had come and asked me what I wanted to buy for myself, the answer was given immediately.
And it was really impossible to hesitate, because it was already Friday.And on Monday we flew away. In the morning, deciding to spend all day shopping, I took out all our money and put it in my bag. And Lesik said:
– Listen, let me put them in my jeans pocket. Save yourself a hundred pounds to pee.
Never did that. And then for some reason he took it.
I already knew that there are three stores of this brand in London. In different areas. We went to the first one. I only wanted Cromwell. This is one of the oldest styles. I saw Marlene Dietrich, Meryl Streep, Sophia Loren and even Audrey Hepburn in this coat in many films! And I will have the same! I so wanted to be like them! All together.
I knew what color I needed – only classic beige! But, to my horror, the store among the million raincoats did not have my size in this color. Only light ones.
We went to the second store. And there – no! I began to worry and demand to rummage in the back room. There are utility rooms everywhere! The saleswomen looked at me in surprise and looked at the computer.
– Not anywhere. Not in a single store, ”was their ruthless response.
I decided not to believe them, since they refused to look in the back room.“So, they decided to hide their own for someone,” I decided, and we went to the third store.
There were nicer girls, and they honestly looked in the back room, but they didn’t find my raincoat.
Not to find Burberry’s cloak in London? But that’s exactly what happened. I had a state that was not even close to hysterics. No. The condition was much worse. And Lesik knew him very well. And I guessed what it might result in.
Many years ago, when he and I arrived in a foreign city, I saw the raincoat of my dreams in the very first store.He dissuaded me from buying it right away, because it cost like a cast-iron bridge, and there were still many shops ahead. Suddenly we will find better and cheaper. But we couldn’t find it better, and when we returned a few hours later for the raincoat, it was no longer there. I am still scared to remember. I screamed as if a herd of mice had come flying over me. But Lesik, I think, is even more terrible to remember than to me. Therefore, he was now behaving extremely cautiously, but nevertheless tried to offer alternative options.
Lesik persuaded me to buy a different color or style.All stores were covered a second time. We have already changed from bus to bus with our eyes closed. Seventy cloaks were re-measured. But that’s not it! We went to the third round. The bus drivers have already greeted us as old acquaintances. It was late afternoon.
And suddenly in the second store a salesman came out to meet us – a charming young man, we had not seen him there before. He turned out to be our former compatriot, although he looks like a real Englishman. The sensitive young man understood everything at once.I understood the depth and seriousness of the problem and said:
– Now we will think of something.
And went where do you think? Of course, in the back room! Where those nasty saleswomen didn’t go! And he brought me my cloak!
Like this! How I knew they were hiding!
We happily photographed for memory with this wonderful soulful young man, we said that in our life we will never forget him. My husband thanked him especially heartily. For him it was definitely even greater happiness than for me.
The weight was taken. Taken with great difficulty, but the stronger was my joy of owning a cult item. And that was great wisdom, I decided. The raincoat that Marlene Dietrich and Audrey Hepburn wore cannot come into their own hands! It must be earned, this cloak is like the stars.
Relaxed and happy, we walked along Oxford Street.
– We need to please the family with something, – we decided and went into a huge multi-storey department store.
On the first floor we bought gifts for our son. The number of packages has increased.On the second – the husband’s daughter. On the third, they began to choose a gift for my aunt, who stayed with our dog. All the time I took off my jacket, hung it anywhere and tried on gifts. The husband was watching the package with the raincoat. I kept an eye on my jacket, which I was losing sight of all the time. And no one followed my bag, which contained our passports and air tickets, because there were no electronic ones yet. And the bag, by the way, was not at all simple, but Bottega Veneta, I bought it just before the trip, on the occasion. The real one.But the husband did not know this company and did not guess about its value. I decided that it would be calmer if all the most valuable things were put together. And put the bag in the bag with the raincoat.
We climbed the escalator even higher. The store was very difficult in terms of geography. There were floors and some semi-floors, and everything was in mirrors. And a lot of good things turned out to be there, so we were hung with packages like real shuttles. Then I decided to hit a little on the underwear and began to dig into my underpants. And at one unpleasant moment, picking up my jacket from the floor, I froze in horror:
– Where is my bag?
The husband said:
– She’s in a bag.
– Where is the package?
– I don’t have it.
For the first time I understood the expression “the soul went into my heels”. She really went there. I imagined how for the remaining two days I would shout: “I will not talk to anyone except the Russian consul!” And those remaining two days were weekend – Saturday and Sunday! We left early on Monday morning. Where to look for him, this consul, at the weekend? Passports! Tickets! Cloak like Marlene! A bag! Horror, horror!
I began to rush around senselessly.Everything was there in a circle in this store. A guard immediately jumped out to help me.
– Help! Help! I shouted. – Little brown bag in and big packs Burberry!
I think he only understood the last word.
She didn’t shout anything else. All the few English words that remained in my memory evaporated. We were already running together with the guard. The husband slowly went to run on other floors. The guard quickly got out of the way – was exhausted. I continued the race.
I don’t know how many of these circles I cut.I didn’t even try to search. I just didn’t know where to do it. Everything rippled in his eyes and seemed exactly the same. In the mirrors that were everywhere, some other people were running. Then I realized that these people are me. Nobody competed with me. I stopped paying attention to distractions and started looking only ahead. I ran and ran in a circle, like in a stadium.
My husband, walking slowly, stopped my race. My dear Lesik had my, even more expensive package in his hands!
“Hanging on a hanger,” he said calmly.
I opened the package – everything was in place! And a raincoat, and a bag, and passports, and tickets, and a wallet! Everything! Happy, I went to the checkout to pay. The husband reached into his pocket to get the money.
– Don’t bother, I’ll pay, – I said, taking out my wallet.
I opened my wallet – it was empty. There were cards, but there was no money – those hundred pounds a dozen each for “peeing”! I have never met a more beautiful and noble theft in my life! Thank you English sir (or lady)! You deserve this money.I could have taken everything. But no:
1— opened the bag
2— took out the bag
3— opened the zipper on the bag
4— took out the wallet
5— opened the zipper on it
6— took only what was needed!
BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT thing that just shocked us:
1— closed the wallet
2— put it back
3— closed the bag
4— put it in the bag
5— hung the bag back on the hanger!
Pure English theft! Beautiful!
And the most handsome man is my husband! How did he know to put money in his pocket in the morning?
“The most popular gifts for Christmas will be books and inexpensive cosmetics”
On these holidays, Europeans will find very modest gifts under the Christmas trees, and in many families Santa Claus will look only at the children.The economic crisis that lasted for three years is forcing Europe to save on the holiday. But the Americans have set a record for purchases in this. Details – from Svetlana Belova.
The most humble Christmas awaits the inhabitants of Spain and Portugal. Trade associations predict sales this year will be 20% lower than last year. The Spaniards now have absolutely no time for gifts, they get used to saving even on food. They come to the supermarket for three carrots, a small bottle of olive oil and a package of washing powder – at a time.Restaurants are also bored in the kitchen – people prefer to cook meals at home, which is not at all typical for relaxed Spaniards, says Roman resident of Marbella.
“The Spaniards loved to go to restaurants, but now they do not, because it is very difficult, because they do not have enough money for such entertainment,” says Roman.
In France, shopkeepers also noted that sales fell by about a quarter over the summer. But they decided not to save on Christmas. Each family plans to spend an average of € 640.But nine out of ten Frenchmen intend to look for gifts at sales and discounts. And in addition, many had to refuse to travel to relatives from other cities, said a resident of Paris, Dimitri de Koshko.
“People are saving more. There is advertising for cheap products or services. Then gasoline is very expensive, so, of course, people drive much less,” says de Coscot.
Italians will cut Christmas spending by 4% and Greeks by 16%. The most popular gifts this year will be books, inexpensive cosmetics and gift certificates.But in the US this year Christmas has broken all consumption records. In just one day, the Americans bought up $ 1.5 billion worth of goods. This is the data for the so-called Cyber Monday, when electronic Christmas sales start in the States. This year, online stores will earn 20% more than last year, says Olga Belenkaya, deputy head of the analytical department at Sovlink.
“Online stores increase competition, offer a large assortment of goods at a discount, and start the sales season earlier,” Belenkaya explained.
