The Santa Claws Are Coming Out
Following news of the impending shop-pocalypse that is Target and Neiman Marcus’ unprecedented holiday collaboration collection, we learn via Racked this week of a similar initiative upcoming from Ebay. Set to launch November 12th, the “Ebay Holiday Collective” will bring gifts designed by Jonathan Adler, Chris Benz, and Billy Reid, among other big names, to the auction and shopping site. Goodies for men and women, as well as home décor and travel items are promised, with prices starting at $50. …At least the clawing and clamoring will be contained to the web for this one.
Read This Real Funny Fake J. Crew Employee Handbook
