Well, it has been a while since I last posted. I’ve been taking a break from blogging to catch up on life and spend time with the people I love. We’re getting off to a strange-weather summer in Chicago, but with only a few hot and humid days, I can’t complain.
We are now in the 3 Weeks, which is a time period that is the 3 weeks leading up to Tisha B’Av (eve of July 25-26), the day when we remember many tragedies that happened to the Jewish people over time. Many of the tragedies happened on Tisha B’Av itself, and I plan to post more about the day as we get closer.
It is a custom, among many others, that we don’t shop for new things during this period. But if we are going to lose out financially, it is permissible. Please note: I am not a rabbi (BH) or a halachic authority of the like. See this article on Aish.com for more information about the 3 weeks and the 9 days.
So here you have it — the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Early Access. If you’re a Nordstrom Cardholder, you can shop the sale 8 days early. If you’re not a cardholder, you can have a sneak-preview of the sale here.
Here are some of my favorites from the sale so far. The sale opens to the public a week from today — July 17. You’ll want to shop before the prices go back up August 3rd.
I’ll be back with more picks when the sale goes “live” for those without a Nordstrom card. Don’t forget that on top of the Anniversary Sale steals, you can also get 3% cash back with ! Happy hunting! And good Shabbos!
