    Macy's on Union Square: Shopping at Macy's

    by Jeannette1 Written Jul 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Macy's is a large department which you will find in most cities. This one is in San Francisco on Union Square and is really beautiful.

    What to buy: Women's fashions, from moderate to very expensive.
    I would recommend the souvenir department for tourists. It's better than what you can find on Fisherman's Wharf.

    Outlet shopping

    If you want to get a bargain, drive out to Plam Springs and go to the outlet stores out there. Be like a Palm Springer and shop in the air-conditioned stores during the day and only come out at night.

  • Gilroy area: Real Granulated Garlic

    by TerryD Updated Mar 11, 2003

    There are several garlic themed shops on Highway 101 through Gilroy that have anything you may want. The Garlic Shoppe and Garlic World are two. Fresh garlic wreaths, garlic mustards, sauces, oils and seasonings. Also pottery, tiles and cooking gear centred on garlic or artichoke themes.

    What to buy: Buy some granulated garlic to take home that gives real taste to your food when the real thing isn't available. Seasonings are easy to transport treats and gifts too.

    What to pay: Two dollars and up.

    Discount Coupons: California

    by bugalugs Written Nov 2, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is not a proper shopping tip, but a suggestion that when you arrive in California, or anywhere really in the States, always pick up the leaflets/discount books as they have always got plenty of discount coupons in them. Whether this be for a theme park/zoo/museum/restaurant/hotel, you are sure to find something in there that you can use.
