Jacqueline King never thought that happy stories like hers really happened. Being homeless with three children had made her rather cynical."Being in a situation like this makes it hard to believe in fairy tales," Ms. King said. "It actually makes things look kind of hopeless."Although she says it still seems like a dream, Ms. King and her family will be sent on a special shopping spree Wednesday at the March Mammoth Sale, sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. Vendors have arranged the shopping spree for the family and are donating desperately needed clothing items.

The Orioles have begun a frenetic shopping spree by extending a four-year offer to home-grown outfielder Brian Jordan that could make the former two-sport star the highest-paid player in club history.Jordan's agent, Jim Turner, and Orioles general manager Frank Wren confirmed an offer was made last weekend to the free agent, who has played with the St. Louis Cardinals the past seven seasons. The offer is believed to approach $30 million, which would challenge the $7.3 million average of third baseman Cal Ripken's guaranteed two-year deal.

More than 70 Baltimore City schoolchildren went holiday shopping Saturday morning with school police officers during the annual "Shop with a Cop" event. City Schools Police Chief Marshall "Toby" Goodwin and 30 officers volunteered their time, picking the students up from their homes and taking them with lights and sirens activated to a Wal-Mart in Glen Burnie to shop for themselves and their families. Goodwin said police raised enough money for each child to have $100 to spend. Officers reached into their own pockets, too — Officer Dave Johnson, for example, bought a bicycle for one child who had already spent his $100, Goodwin said.

Jenny Mauric has been watching the calendar, counting the days until Monday. On that day, she will shed her middle-school status and walk the halls of Baltimore City College as a high-school freshman. Far from feeling trepidation, the teenager from Original Northwood awaits the day with confidence. Sure, she'll be taking on three international baccalaureate classes, but that's not a cause for concern. Falling back to the bottom rung in class-rank status? Eh. Learning new rules, new routines and pecking orders?

The squishy fluorescent green frog puzzled Amanda Kelly. "This is only $5," the 14-year old said as she held the item in the toy section of Target in Bel Air. "But what do you do with it?" She put it back. Down the aisle, Ashley Smith perused a set of twin Bratz dolls. "Oh, look at these! The girls we're shopping for are twins, too! But they probably hate getting everything the same," she said. "We can't do this to them." The girls made their way to the next aisle, where Stephany Lawhon scanned dolls lining the bottom shelf and scored a hit. "Look at this.

While much of the country spent yesterday waiting in lines to purchase holiday gifts, Julia Notar was in her Baltimore home sleeping off all the turkey she ate the day before. While shoppers drove through parking lots waiting for a space to open up close to the store, Notar watched television and caught up with her parents and her cousins visiting from Princeton, N.J. And while many racked up even more credit card debt taking advantage of post-Thanksgiving Day sales, Notar hung out with her childhood friends and listened to music.

Online shopping is expected to be one of the bright spots in retailing this holiday season, growing five times as fast as overall gift spending. It's still a thin slice of the holiday retail pie, however, maybe 5 percent or 6 percent by some estimates. The social aspects of shopping, especially this time of year, are deeply ingrained in our memories - and our old Christmas movies - and often seem to outweigh the frustrations of finding a scarce clerk or parking space. For all of its cold, calculated efficiency, the Internet can't replicate that.
