Best of Belladonna- on sale_lowres


A line was formed this morning before 9:00 am for what is the best sale of the year for New Orleans women.  In celebration of the birthday of the Belladonna’s Day Spa owner, the entire merchandise line of the store goes on sale for the amount of her age.  This year everything is 49% off, with the exception of the makeup, hair and skin care lines that are 20% off.  This event is a true definition of a sale (unlike that barely worth it 10% discount stores try tempt you with).  


The store is currently packed with women carrying bright orange baskets and loading up on early Christmas Gifts, bridal gifts, baby gifts and special me-gifts for themselves.  A staff member was overheard describing the scene as the New Orleans version of Bulls of Pamploma, as a customer wished that they would take numbers as you entered like a meat market so you wouldn't have to wait in the long line to check out.

So yes, I was there with the crazy rush before 9:00 am, and my living room is now scattered with bright orange bags as I reflect if I went overboard or didn’t take advantage of the sale enough.   The sale ends tomorrow at 6:00 pm….maybe I will go back or wait 364 days for everything to be marked down at 50%....
