The week in shopping: changes!

A few years ago, I took a poll asking if you'd still read Cheryl Shops if I didn't list the weekly sales. A resounding 62% of you said no, and so I soldiered on with my listings. This has been both good and bad: As word has spread about Cheryl Shops, I've had more stores, showrooms, publicists, and so on contacting me about sales, and thus I've had even more listings to share with you. The bad news is that the more sales I know about, the more time I spend compiling them. And a significant portion of the time, I include sales that I don't know anything about, that may be of dubious quality, and/or that I seriously doubt any of you even care about. So I am making a change to the Week in Shopping: Instead of listing as many damn sales as I possibly can, I'm going to pick my Top 20 for the week--10 in NYC, 10 on the Internet. (And in the interest of full disclosure, I will note that sometimes links to online sales are affiliate links, meaning if you make a purchase, I get a kickback from the retailer. This helps to support Cheryl Shops financially, and please be assured that not only do I appreciate every little bit I receive, but that sales I choose to include, I would do so regardless of whether the site offers affiliate links.) So, let's try this for a few weeks, and if you guys miss the maniacal lists, I will consider bringing them back. Of course, feel free to leave comments below, or email me if you're a private kind of gal.

I like the super long lists for NYC because I found a couple small labels that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

I like your plan for new more edited lists, especially if in the "top" you continue to feature labels and sales that aren't listed everywhere else.
