School Supplies
“Florida Christian School in Miami put a few order forms on its website to make school supply shopping easier. Parents can purchase their children T-shirts bearing the school’s logo or some snugly winter wear. Or, for $120, they can buy them bullet-resistant panels designed to slip into their backpacks in case of a school shooting.”

— “Florida school lets parents buy bulletproof panels for students to put in backpacks,” Travis M. Andrews, Washington Post

“It weighs less than a book and can stop a bullet. It’s a backpack option at Miami school.” Alex Harris, Miami Herald

Back to School

September 7, 2016

Back to School

“The back-to-school season is the second-biggest shopping period of the year, behind Christmas. But while families will spend more than before, how they will do it — and where they will do it — varies widely.

A growing list of designer notebooks, luxury desk accessories and even beanbag chairs now caters to wealthy back-to-school shoppers. Shoppers can buy a $195 Gucci headband, a $572 Versace backpack and a $28 Terez pencil case on the back-to-school section of Saks’ website. Restoration Hardware has a new ‘teen’ line that includes a $2,000 ‘riveted aluminum’ desk and $250 faux fur beanbag chairs.”

— “Back-to-School Divide: $195 Headbands and $1 Glue Sticks,” Rachel Abrams, New York Times
