I am in Williamsburg a lot and they have a great outlet there (BBrothers, Columbia, Couch, Gap, etc) and when it first opened, it was amazing. But lately, except for Columbia and Couch, I found that the stuff was cheaper. BBrother shirts were thinner and not as nice, Gap didn't have their regular clothes, etc. And it was not particularly cheap.

I think I might go and do some holiday shopping warm ups to get ready for the season - you know, steal someone's parking place that they had been patiently waiting for, throw some elbows as I work my way through the crowds, grab some sale merchandise out from in front of someone before they can pick it up, flip a few people off ... Ho, Ho, Ho

I would go sooner if it is open in summer :-) About an hour of drive from my place.

TV news tonight said the new outlets were expecting extremely heavy traffic this weekend which could cause some problems: Outlet center opening could snarl traffic | abc11.com

I honestly can't remeber the last time I bought a piece of clothing. I still have a favorite pair of shoes I wear fairly often that I got for Christmas 8 years ago and have some shirts with the tags still on them hanging in my closest from a birthday 3 years ago. I'm sure I will get to wearing them someday. They will be brand new to me.

It drives my wife nuts.

Exclamation WARNING: Expect A lot of Traffic / Parking Issues This Weekend!

Just saw news coverage of the grand opening on WRAL. They have a news chopper overhead. Traffic exiting the freeway looks all backed up and the parking lots are beyond full. Folks are parking on the grass and along sidestreets. They interviewed one guy who drove out from Raleigh and he said it took 40 minutes to roll up to the exit off the freeway.

Looks like a nice facility, but I would consider waiting until he buzz dies down before visiting!

Yay! I just got back from a successful trip! Thank goodness for secret back roads

We didn't sit in any traffic and had no problem parking on a side road on the back end of the shopping center where there will be future development.

I had to be in Durham this morning so on my way back I thought I would check out the traffic off the exits before meeting my friend to go shopping. It was backed up for a mile on 85/40 each way. I took the next exit to get back into town and checked out the back roads and they were clear like I had hoped!

I would have been very frustrated if I wasn't familiar with the area and had to sit in that crazy traffic!



Here's a picture of the traffic on I-85/40 about 10:15 this morning. It was the same thing coming from the other direction too.

Instead of "What Not to Wear" it looks like "Where Not to Go".

Apologies to Ms. London.
