Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gifts and more at Barn White, located on 10th Street in McAllen.
Barn White showcases eclectic home furnishings and whimsical gifts within a rustic white barn facade. Get rid of pet skunks' stench with scented candles from Niven Morgan (starting at $30), use year-round Christmas ornaments from Christopher Radko (starting at $25) to ward off early trick-or-treaters, or produce skin as squeaky and clean as a newly polished bike horn with fine bath products from Lady Primrose (starting at $23). Earrings from Andrea Barnett (starting at $42) dangle textured gold loops and glimmering pearls off formerly bare lobes.
Barn White will bestow Groupon holders with an additional coupon for 20% off one item on their next visit. The staff also cocoons purchases of $15 or more in complimentary gift-wrapping, and in-store coffee pots eternally percolate free joe to increase shoppers' gift-buying speed by transforming them into caffeinated cartoon tornadoes.
