The Next Best Thing to a NYC Street Vendor

pashmina silk scarves shawls

The other day I was wishing for an inexpensive pashmina shawl. I wanted something shimmery and silky to wrap around my daughter’s shoulders when she wore her holiday dress but I didn’t want to splurge for cashmere. It made me miss the corner vendors in New York who sell pashminas in every color imaginable.

A couple days later I got curious and started searching online…

Turns out eBay is like the street vendor of my dreams. There were literally dozens of eBay sellers offering pashminas at $10 or less. And I didn’t have to wait for a subway to place my order. : )

Tip: for fast shipping, look for vendors based in your own country.
