NEW YORK—Claudia and Chantal of Lower East Side gallery/boutique End of Century don't even watch the reality show that supercharged their business, Bravo's Gallery Girls.
CHICAGO—The Chicago marathon is coming so our sister site has tapped expert advice for before, during, and after the race from seasoned marathoner and regional director of FFC Spas, Scott Lewandowski. Bonus: It's fun to read as if the tips are meant for a marathon shopping event. Ready? Set. Shop!
