She said they bought him $264 worth of dress shirts and ties. She charged the purchases, and he reimbursed her with a check drawn on his joint account with his wife.

Having just completed a 28-day stay at a drug treatment center to overcome a marijuana addiction, 15-year-old Antiona Mills went shopping Sunday afternoon for new school clothes to make a fresh start. Barely 15 hours later, the teen-ager was discovered beaten to death - naked and wrapped in a sheet on a Northwest Baltimore street, police say. The death has shocked a family that believed the teen-ager had begun to focus on reshaping her life. "She was just a happy-go-lucky girl," said Marylin Mills, 62, Antiona's grandmother.

LOS ANGELES -- Members of a suburban Van Nuys Girl Scout troop who showed up for a shopping trip at the Northridge Fashion Square were at first denied entry by security officials enforcing a policy designed to prevent gang violence.Mall officials say the guards were just doing their jobs, but the leader of Troop 823 said yesterday that the scouts deserve an apology."The guard said a group with more than three people was a gang. I said 'Do we look like a gang? Look at these girls, we have adults here, they are clean cut and they have lots of supervision,' " said troop leader Lois Young.

Use a shopping catalog such as J.C. Penny or Sears. Tell your child you are going on a shopping trip. Have him select an item, such as a television, and ask him, "What sound does television begin with?"You can do the same with other items, and every time he gives the correct sound, he gets to cut out and keep that object. When he does not know a sound, tell him, "Television begins with the sound 't'." Try not to say a vowel after the sound, in other words say 't' not 'tuh.' Praise him for the sounds he does give correctly.

MOSCOW -- It's Lena Ryzhova's day off, and she needs to pick up some things for the kids' lunches.This is no dash to the 7-Eleven. Nor is it a stock-up at the Safeway mother lode. Don't even think about coupons. By American consumer standards, her shopping trip, like that of every urban Russian, is a Stone Age odyssey worthy of National Geographic.Ryzhova is about to make a one-hour trek in which she covers two miles on foot in a temperature of 10 degrees. She examines handwritten prices, visits a pricey supermarket, stops next at a cheesy kiosk, then elbows into the crowd at a wholesale flea market.

Boston -- On the seventh day before Christmas, the couple went out together to shop for presents. And came home with a bundle of revelations.Until then, mind you, the pair appeared to be a very model of compatibility. They shared everything from a passion for calamari to an impatience with Mario Cuomo.No predetermined sex roles skewed their partnership. Indeed, they were capable of sharing a kitchen, a checkbook and a tennis court without contemplating spouseicide. Who would have guessed that a gender gap of massive proportions would come unwrapped over gifts?

Ted Williams wasn't at the pool last week. Nor was he on the basketball court, polishing off an ice cream cone, sleeping in till noon or catching a movie. One gloriously sunny midsummer day found him at Target, clutching a dictionary and gazing listlessly at three-ring binders. Though it felt as if vacation had barely begun, the Towson teenager was already back-to-school shopping with his mother and younger brother. He could almost hear the institutional bell cutting into his time off. The shopping trip, he declared, was "a killjoy.

Shopping for furniture can be a drag. On the other hand, who doesn't love taking delivery of that perfect new sectional, armoire, hall mirror, or table? But the road from shopping to buying can be a long one, and driving back and forth between the big box stores and boutique shops may tie up an entire weekend or longer, and even then, there's no guarantee of finding what you want. Interior designers typically maximize their time by going to the "trade only" design centers or letting manufacturers reps come to them.

Last week, I was doing some holiday shopping in a popular retail establishment; let's just call it "Wharf Uno." Wharf Uno is a pretty smelly store -- there is always some sort of enigmatic scent wafting through the aisles, emanating from a new scent-delivery system called "reed diffusers." These reeds look surprisingly like incense sticks, but they are cleverly incapable of igniting your draperies and burning your house down because you do not light them. Instead, you stand them up in a jar of fragrant oil, and they soak it up. Through some sort of magical transference system, the air starts smelling.

I've never met Joe and Peggy Werner, but I endorse their suggestion that a memorable Christmas Eve could be spent in church along Baltimore's Charles Street corridor. They recommended starting early, dropping in here and there, and breaking for dinner. Joe recalled a Christmas Eve experience at SS. Philip and James Roman Catholic Church in Charles Village where gowned hostesses acting as ushers invited him to a post-midnight parish reception.

Eating chocolate is an appropriate way to mark most any occasion in life, from honoring Arbor Day to mourning the death of a major appliance.Over the years I marked such noteworthy events as finding a free parking spot, by stopping at the Rheb chocolate booth in the Lexington Market and refueling.Whenever I spot a Rolls-Royce, which these days isn't very often, I nonetheless think of the time I held a model of that car, made from Godiva chocolate, in my moist and trembling hands.The sight of dark blue ceramic tile makes me think chocolate covered nuts and the tiled entrance to the Russell Stover store in Kansas City.
