The Insatiable Shopper

Scouting the maketplace with Joy Kraft

        The scene is ripe for cherry picking. The sundae-topper is cropping up on everything from sandals to sun hats and clocks to teacups. Could the bright red fruit be replacing those tired sunflowers of summers past? Here's a fruity sampling.

        Rhinestones stud suede straps on 2 1/2-inch foam wedges, $19.50 at abercrombie.

        Cerise, cherry-ringed coffee cup and saucer from La Comptoir De Famille, $17.95 at Coffee Emporium in Hyde Park.

        Red and gingham cherries on a polished cotton and spandex mini with gingham belt, $19.99 at Charlotte Russe stores.

        French cherry clock, 31-inch diameter, $148.25 ($248 in catalog) at Ballard Designs Outlet, West Chester.
