Just a few days ago, it was 70 degrees in Columbus, OH. But that changed. Now it’s cold. I’m thrilled we got not one, but two, Indian Summers this year, but as I sit here in the warmth of my space heater, I’m not looking forward to this sudden chill.

And with the drop in temperatures, comes the retrieval of my North Face Denali from storage. It’s the coat I turn to before I bust out the heavy artillery!

If you’re shopping around for some North Face merch, I highly recommend checking out Zappos. Not only do they have a large selection of items — from jackets to bags & boots — but you also get free shipping…wait for it… BOTH WAYS! So, if for some reason your purchase doesn’t work out for you, return shipping is free as well!

A friend was just asking me about Zappos the other day, and I vouched for the validity of their company. I’m even a VIP customer somehow. I’m still not sure what that means, because everyone already gets free shipping, but I like the sound of it and being part of an exclusive club.

I would be remiss to not tell you what I think the best part of Zappos is: the customer reviews! They are a must-read! If you want to know how something fits, previous purchasers will let you know. If you want to know what an product’s material feels like, they’ll let you know that as well. So, it’s a very great resource for all kinds of shopping.
