La Cieca (pictured) would like to remind those members of the cher public with last-minute gift shopping needs that purchases from the Little Shop of Arias completed by 7:00 PM EST today (Friday) can still reach their intended recipients by December 24. (Simply select “Two-Day Shipping” at checkout) The even more dilatory among you should recall that an Amazon Gift Card is instantly deliverable via email and (ça va sans dire) always in the best of taste.
