    Moses Wamoyo is a sales clerk at TW Luggage in Northwest D.C and he's describing his store's wide selection of colored leather purses. "Red, black, brown and even that lime green," he says. "That's a new color they just came up with."

    Maybe you received a lime green leather purse for Christmas that you're just not crazy about. Wamoyo is ready for you. He says a successful December 26th requires a mental adjustment from the frenzy of the holiday shopping season.
