I know you're not here for me so I won't run on for too long, but the fact that you are here, reading this, doing your part is amazing. Thank you. This year has been a mess for retail shops opening and closing their doors, there is literally nothing that could have prepared them for this year. They honestly need a round of applause and massages, someone dm the PM and let him know.
When you look at this list remember this is just a small portion of what is actually here available to us. There is so much more that I haven't listed I'm sure.
FYI- There are three main Sections - Clothing, Home and Accessories and Artists.

Home and More
This section is a hodgepodge of just about everything. Accessories, home decor, stationary, candles. Theres only a few of each that are coming to mind, which probably means I need to explore the big wide world of Nassau (HA). But nevertheless I've thrown them all into one section so we can all feel that horrible sensation. Yanno, that feeling when we walk into forever 21 and everything is screaming at you but you can't see what it is. Yeah...that feeling.
