Kids Play

If you have kids in your life, the next few months seem to revolve around them, starting this weekend with Halloween!  Of course, I realize that there are a lot of adults who celebrate Halloween as well, but the sake of today’s blog post, let’s focus on what’s for kids.  Today on Show Me St. Louis, I featured “gotta have it” items from stores at South County Center.

And while I was browsing South County Center earlier this week, I found a great promotion at Perfumania.  Many of the perfumes and colognes throughout the store are part of a sales going on now: buy one item at regular price and get a second item for $19.99.  This includes some of their most popular fragrances including Vince Camuto Femme and Sofia Vergara Tempting for her, and Vince Camuto Homme and Kenneth Cole Mankind for him.
