Travel tidbits for airport shoppers

Zady_Pop up

A cute pop-up shop from eco-minded, ultra-hip on-line retailer Zady has opened in Delta’s Terminal D at New York’s LaGuardia International Airport and will stay open daily through January 4th.

Better yet: five percent of every sale benefits Zady’s non-profit partner, The Bootstrap Project (TBP), which supports traditional crafts and customs and sustainable economic development in communities around the world.

treat our troops

And on Monday, Veterans Day, keep in mind that in the Paradies shops at Philadelphia International Airport, including CNBC News (Terminal A-East through E) and Heritage Books (B/C Connector), you can purchase an item as a donation for troops overseas. Examples include non-perishable food and beverages, magazines and reading materials, travel-sized sundries, neck pillows and just-for-fun souvenirs or gifts. The shops will collect the passenger donations and deliver them to the USO in Terminal A.

Many of the Paradies-operated shops in airports in other cities participate in the program as well, so keep and eye open as you travel.
