It’s the day after Thanksgiving, which marks the start of the holiday season. It’s also the season of giving, and in that spirit I’m skipping a food post in favor of sharing an important campaign with you today.

I discovered this unique combo and shot it to the top of my new found food list and loved it so much,  I now care to share.  Here's how the menu reads; Smoked Turkey Breast, Smoked Bacon, Monterey Jack, Cranberry Lemon (zest) Mayonnaise on...wait for it...Cinnamon Cobblestone Bread...grilled!  As if that weren't enough, they serve it with ice cold crunchy baby carrot stick. It's a 10 for $8.95!

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

Sacramento -- As a woman who loves to shop, I often experience less than enthusiastic sales people -- especially during a holiday sale! That's why the effort by an executive at Macy's in downtown Sacramento deserves my thanks for going the extra mile to help me during the recent Presidents' Day Sale. When an advertised toaster oven resulted in a sell-out, Macy's executive "Rob" promised to contact other Macy store locations to, hopefully, find this toaster oven at a generously-discounted price. I told Rob my old toaster oven (a wedding gift in 1974) is "sparking" while in use. Clearly, I need a new toaster oven before my garlic bread turns into a camp fire. Even though Rob promised to find me the advertised toaster oven, I assumed that once I'm out of sight that I'd also be out of Rob's mind. Two days later, Rob called saying he located the out-of-stock toaster oven! Amazingly, Rob wants me to be a happy Macy's shopper. He succeeded.

Sacramento Shopping Scene: Local Boutiques vs. Mall Madness

Sacramento Shopping Scene: Local Boutiques vs. Mall Madness

Style. Image. Personal Service. Convenience.

These are all things we take into consideration when we go out on a shopping adventure. Many of us know what we want and what we want to spend.

But where to go? Grind into the mall parking lot and head into the vast selection of shops and department stores? Or do we hop off the freeway and glide into Midtown Sacramento where galleries and boutiques share the tree-lined streets from Capitol Park to Business 80.

If you choose the mall, you'll know pretty much what to expect. Gap, Macy's, Nordstrom, etc. all have many styles to choose from (at tremendous markup), but finding a knowledgeable clerk who can spend time with you is difficult. And chances are, when you do decide on that cute dress, somebody at the party will have also decided on the same dress! Because these huge chain stores buy large quantities of the same item, and load their racks with them.
