My 25 Ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS

It was a fun day of shopping………….5th Avenue……….a flea market………a silver emporium………and a crafts show.  [I am exhauested].  But I did make 5 purchases…………gifts for family…….friends………and my stockbroker!

The TAXIDERMY DEER HEAD………..was NOT among my purchases.

However…………..this Courtly Check Moose Head at MacKenzie Childs did tempt me…………..at $15,000 [cough]………….but it was the $695 delivery charge that killed the purchase.
