Elegant Tightwad Shopping Excursions has been leading shopping tours in NYC since 2002. We originated the NY Garment Center wholesale showroom shopping tour and therefore have access to the most showrooms. The company was founded 9 years ago by shopping guru Pamela Parisi, author of "Dress Like a Million Bucks, While Spending only Pennies; An insider's guide to finding designer bargains at drop-dead prices in NYC." Pamela has been called to comment by news outlets such as CNN & CBS, to list a couple, because of her shopping knowledge & expertise. Elegant Tightwad Shopping Excursions has been featured all over the world in print media as well as on TV & Radio. Due to the quality and uniqueness of our tours we have been covered by The London Sunday Times, NY Daily News, NY Newsday, Elle Magazine, Bild AM Sontag(Germany), Le Figaro(France), Ok Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, and many more, as well as TV programs in Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Japan, Slovakia etc. We have been named one of the Top 10 NYC tours by NYCGo.com, one of the top 25 by New York Magazine, and a must-do by the NY Daily news. We are a proud member of NYC & Co, New York's convention & visitors bureau.
