As God is my witness, they’re not going to lick me. I’m going to live through this and when it’s all over, I’ll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.

(A reader just complained about this post being mean – I dug it up and think it’s still funny so here it is again – sorry, reader)

Earlier this week we reported that Kathy Fuld has stopped buying $30,000 of bedsheets a month from Greenwich Avenue’s own Lynnens. Now, courtesy of Page Six we can tell you equally startling news: Bob Jaffe, Bernie Madoff’s Palm Beach bagman, has stopped seeing his manicurist and is doing his nails himself.  So naturally, in view of these stirring tales of self-sacrifice by the financially afflicted, we wondered how the Noel family was bearing up. A quick trip up to 175 Round Hill Road revealed the answer: with the help of caddy boys from Round Hill Club, Monica and the Fabulous Five are standing firm – they’re fit and rarin’ to go. Here’s one of the daughters now, getting a mudpack and a manicure. Does she look worried?

Thank you, Adolfo. Don't forget Mom's oats.

One woman, one economy

From a reader:

I’m told that Lynnens, the fancy bedding store on the Avenue, is being walloped. Why?

Because Kathy Fuld went in every 1-2 months and spent $20,000 – $40,000 on sheets & towels. She’d get a bunch, try them out in Greenwich, then “triple up” and get the same for all their homes. 

 
Now, apparently, Kathy has “gone to 0” in local shopping. So Lynnens, whose rent is $30,000/month, is  really hurting. There surely are other Greenwich stores hurting too. I notice that the place that used to be Mead’s – that entire block is >50% “For Lease”.

Jesus weeps.
