Between October 2000 and February 2001, three of them opened in the Tampa Bay area.
With movie theaters, shops and restaurants tucked inside, shopping centers like Centro Ybor, BayWalk and Channelside Bay Plaza were meant to be bustling community centers, a draw to residents and tourists.
But in the 16 years or so since they opened, each has suffered more than they’ve flourished. Centro Ybor was nearly bankrupt by 2004 and is mostly office space today. St. Petersburg’s BayWalk was bought by hometown entrepreneur Bill Edwards, who spent millions to renovate the center and put it back on the market.
And Channelside Bay Plaza could be bulldozed if Port Tampa Bay’s board of directors approves a plan from Strategic Property Partners, the real estate firm owned by Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik and Bill Gates’ Cascade Investment. The plan would raze the 230,532-square-foot nearly empty […] Continue Reading…

Vintage shopping, even for the most seasoned of secondhand connoisseurs, can be an exhaustive endeavor. Sure, it’s something akin to hunting for treasure, but the biggest roadblock to unearthing clothing gems is so often the sizing. Modern silhouettes and yesteryear fashion don’t always necessarily measure up, but as Jordan Rebello and Abrielle Stedman of Los Angeles’s newest vintage hub, Trouble in Paradise, attest, it’s all about finding the right silhouettes and cuts from different eras. Meeting on the set of a shoot for Mansur Gavriel, the model friends both discovered they shared an enthusiasm for thrifting; both agreed that older styles and cuts worked best on their curvier frames. Combining their vast experience in the field—Rebello used to run a vintage booth with her husband at Los Angeles’s Rose Bowl—the duo are now tracking down the most enviable denim, Victorian dresses, and vintage tees for their store that opened this past July.
Here, the ladies break down how to find the best jeans to show off your assets, what to wear when expecting, and how to track down vintage shoes in your size.
How Thrifting Became Their Game

Bing Ads Editor now supports Shopping campaigns

Shopping campaign management has arrived in Bing Ads Editor version 11.4. The update makes it possible to create new Shopping campaigns and edit existing ones in Editor.
A new Shopping settings tab is now available in the editor panel to set the store ID, region of sale and campaign priority.

To make it easier to bulk-manage product groups, Bing Ads has done away with the need to have a parent product group ID for every product group. Instead, the product group field contains the full path, which makes it possible to make changes without a parent ID and easier to see parent product groups. Additionally, the product groups align with AdWords Editor, so you can import a file exported from AdWords Editor into Bing Ads Editor. (It’s also possible to import Shopping campaigns from Google in the Bing Ads UIl.)

You can change the Type, Bid and Destination URLs for product groups in the editor pane. To edit product groups themselves in Bing Ads Editor, use Make multiple changes or Import a new file.
You can also edit Promotional text and enable or pause Product Ads in Editor from the Product ads window.
Reminder that you’ll need to have downloaded BAE version 11. If you’re not […] Continue Reading…
