The main supplies I will be bringing are:

... entered into the iPad & we're off. Shopping nirvana is 32 miles/45 minutes away down the NY Thruway which is a 6 lane toll road. Getting there was a breeze, no rain, light traffic. We arrived not long after it opened so parking was simple, the place was really lovely but it started to rain (a very fine mist that didn't let up all day) First stop, Polo Ralph Lauren of course.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the spacious "suite" with kitchenette - where we could nourish ourselves on leftovers from our dinner at Kara and John's. Thank you, John, for all the food!
