Shopgirl: The fair lights the way to fun

  • Follow Smart Shopper

WHAT’S TRENDY

This is the time of year for apple cider, hayrides and the state fair. The Georgia-Carolina state fair kicks off this coming weekend and goes through the next, and I hope you can make it. For all the kitschy prizes and fried food, it’s so much fun.

Tickets start at $6 and you can find them at GeorgiaCarolinaStateFair.com.

WHAT’S AFFORDABLE

I constantly forget to leave my outside light on when I leave the house at night, and when I get back later I have to turn my phone on to find the right key. It drives me crazy. Thankfully, I found an easy fix you should check out as well – the ThumbLite stick-on LCD light.

Creators claim it’s the smallest, brightest LCD light (can’t speak for the validity of that statement), but the $4.25 price has me sold. You just stick the light on your key, and not only can you find your keys in the dark, you can also find the key slot. Find it on Amazon.com or Thumb-lite.com.

WHAT’S NEW

This fall’s silhouettes are combining two of my favorite things – loose-knit sweaters and tunics. From H&M to Neiman Marcus, the racks are packed with sweaters that have a loose and comfortable weave, and enough length that you won’t have to keep pulling it down. Of course, when buying sweaters, you need to look for natural fibers and low fuzz to keep your black pants from growing a beard.
