It's not often that you come across shoppers waiting on line on Madison Avenue. Somehow the French pastry shop, Laduree has customers lining up as if they were waiting for the newest Apple iPhone release.
If you're looking for a quick sweet and an even sweeter deal, we might suggest stopping into the French jeweler, Mauboussin. The store is offering Laduree macarons and 10% off everything every Saturday from 4pm to 7pm. Yes, it's a jewelry store and it's French but the prices are not too intimidating. For instance, this amethyst and diamond ring is $1100 and these diamond stud earrings are $1675. Both less than certain brands and styles of boots.
Oh, did they mention that Mauboussin will also give you a glass of chapmaign to wash down your macaron? Now that's some sweet jewelry shopping!
