Tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of counterfeit Nike Air Jordan sneakers were identified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, 26 miles west of downtown Washington, D.C.

The sneakers arrived from Hong Kong in seven boxes Dec. 15 and were headed for an address in Alexandria, Virginia, according to CBP. The boxes were listed as auto parts, so CBP officers suspected the sneakers inside were counterfeit.

"In this case, these items obviously did not match the description being shipped," U.S. Customs and Border Protection Assistant Port Director Patrick E. Orender Jr. said.

Nike verified the sneakers as counterfeit, and CBP completed the seizure Jan. 2.

The 400 pairs of various fake Mikes would have had a value of $54,715 at the suggested retail price if they were authentic, CBP said.

“Customs and Border Protection will continue to work closely with our trade and consumer safety partners to seize counterfeit and inferior merchandise, especially those products that pose potential harm to American consumers, negatively impact legitimate business brand reputations, and potentially steal jobs from U.S. workers,” CBP Acting Port Director for the Area Port of Washington, D.C., Daniel Mattina said.

Arrests in cases of this size are rare, according to a CBP public affairs officer.

CBP said officers seize about $4 million in fake merchandise every day, and it can be dangerous. Officers said in one shipment they confiscated goods that were radioactive. Furniture intercepted in the past had hazardous material in the product, Orender said.

According to the CBP, the most common fake goods are clothing (20 percent), electronics (16 percent), footwear (12 percent), jewelry (11 percent) and pharmaceuticals (8 percent).

If you see coffee when you look into the Mirror of Erised, then we have some great news for you.

Fans of “Harry Potter” will be thrilled to know that Starbucks offers a “secret menu” with drinks inspired by the films and books.

Those drinks, the Butterbeer Latte and the Butterbeer Frappuccino, are available at your local coffee shop, and the company itself has provided instructions on how to order the delicious concoctions.

“If a customer would like to order a beverage that is not on our menu, we recommend they know the recipe,” the retailer suggests.

For a Butterbeer Latte, the company instructs customers to ask for a Latte with whole milk, caramel syrup, toffee nut syrup, and cinnamon dolce syrup. To top the drink off, you can add whipped cream and salted caramel bits.

For the Butterbeer Frappuccino, customers can ask for a Crème Frappuccino with caramel and toffee nut syrups, with caramel drizzle over the top.

Taco Bell announced that it will begin selling Nacho Fries this month for $1 in the Dollar Menu war with fast food giants, CNBC reported.

The newest addition to Taco Bell's menu is part of a strategy for the year where the Mexican fast food will introduce 20 additional new items onto its Dollar Menu across the nation. The fries will also be an available option in the $5 box meals. 

Jack in the Box and McDonald's have both followed suit and also introduced new additions to their respective Dollar Menu items, CNBC reported.

Taco Bell told CNBC that its menu items garnered more than $500 million in sales in 2017 and its $5 boxes, which often contain its limited-time offerings, generated an additional $1 billion in sales for the brand.

People can be hard to please when it comes to buying Christmas presents —  especially if they don't know what they want themselves.

A lot of people apparently turned to Google this year when they didn't know what they wanted for the holiday, according to Google Trends' round-up of the top questions about Christmas in the U.S. this week. "What do I want for Christmas" was ranked fourth, following questions about when Christmas is and how to draw a Christmas tree.

The top result of a Google search for that question on Christmas Day was a quiz that crunches readers' answers about their favorite soft drink, animal and color and, perhaps tellingly, "Which gift would you most want for Christmas?" to determine what they want to get.


Google offered more information on its users' holiday-themed activity this year, too.

Sugar cookies were the most searched variety of cookie, beating out gingerbread, chocolate chip, peanut butter and snickerdoodle.

People searching "how to" do something Christmas related wanted to know how to draw and decorate Christmas trees, how to make a Christmas bow, the German translation of "Merry Christmas" and how to put a ribbon on what the Germans call a Weihnachtsbäum. (That means Christmas tree.)

Google looked at other holidays, too. Like Christmas, people searching for Hanukkah most commonly wanted to know when it was. The most common question for the annual holiday celebrating African-American culture was "What is Kwanzaa."


The holidays are always a busy travel season, and Google reported that people searching "Flights to" most often finished that phrase with Las Vegas, Hawaii and Florida — warm-weather destinations people might be dreaming of escaping to amid the blast of winter weather.

Between holiday parties, baking cookies for Santa, and office treats, the holidays can be a time of celebration through food. 

But do you know how many calories you are actually consuming with those holiday snacks? 

Consumer Reports recently broke down the calorie count in your favorite Christmas cookies, telling you how many to eat to reach 100 calories. 

For Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Stars Shortbread cookies, you can eat about three to get to 100 calories. 

Classic butter cookies, like the ones made by Sherwood Danish Delights that come in the blue tins, come to 100 calories if you eat about two and a third. 

Pepperidge Farm tops Christmas necessities for some. Their Milano Cookies (Candy Cane version), with layers of peppermint and chocolate, are 100 calories for about one and a half. 

Gingerbread man cookies from Pepperidge Farm have 100 calories for every three you eat. 

What about Nabisco Winter Oreos? They have red cream but the flavor is the same. One and a half of those equal 100 calories. 

Pillsbury Ready to Bake takes a shortcut to decorating cookies. A little less than two come to 100 calories. 

While Santa's elves are busy making toys, Keebler elves are making Fudge Stripes Peppermint cookies. A little more than one of these equals 100 calories. 

What is your favorite holiday cookie?

And then, there’s the gift-receiving. It sounds easy, sure, but what happens when all eyes in the room turn to you, scrutinizing your face for the slightest twitch of a reaction to whatever it is you might receive? You don’t want to convey the wrong emotion in such a fraught moment. You want to convey the right emotion, the one that says, "Hey — thanks."

Life is stressful enough without worrying about your facial expression all the time. Fortunately, stylist and lifestyle expert Carson Kressley showed NBC Better some tricks for staying cool when you’re feeling the holiday heat.

Don’t worry, Kressley says. "Anyone can do it." Check out his video guide below.

A mother in Utah taught both of her children to sign using American Sign Language before they could speak. What she didn't expect was for her son to use his skill to communicate that he really didn't enjoy sitting in Santa's lap.

Kerry Spencer told "Today" Parents that she didn't see Samuel's ASL sign for "help" until after the photo was taken.

Her family has been laughing about the picture for years, but this year the Stevenson University professor, now living in Maryland, decided to tweet the photo. It's now gone viral, being retweeted thousands of times.

Spencer told "Today" that, strictly speaking, the sign is "mispronounced." The thumb should be up, not sideways.

"Babies learning to sign often mispronounce words, but it is the sign he always made when he needed help," she said

Two years after it closed its famed location on Fifth Avenue, FAO Schwarz is reopening a new store in the heart of Midtown, according to reports.

The iconic toy store will be moving to a new space at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, about eight blocks south of its old location at the General Motors Building on Fifth Avenue, the Commercial Observer reported.

FAO will occupy the 19,000-plus-square-foot space currently home to the NBC Experience Store. NBC is headquartered at Rockefeller Center.

The new store will span the ground floor and mezzanine level at Rockefeller Center, according to the Commercial Observer. Details of the “long-term” lease haven’t been revealed, but the store is set to open in fall 2018. 

FAO was at its 61,000-square-foot flagship location for decades before closing its doors in the summer of 2015. The Fifth Avenue location was featured in many Hollywood movies, including “Big” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.”

ThreeSixty Group, a provider of branded consumer products to the nation’s largest retailers, announced in 2016 that it had acquired FAO from Toys “R” Us.

<![CDATA[Bride: UPS Lost My Dream Dress Weeks Before the Wedding]]> Wed, 06 Dec 2017 10:58:09 -0500 https://media.nbcboston.com/images/213*120/120517+lost+wedding+dress.jpg

Just weeks before a Virginia woman's wedding, UPS lost the dress of her dreams -- but it looks like this story now has a happy ending. 

Elementary school teacher Mashaell Abedy couldn't believe her luck when she found a deeply discounted lace gown by her favorite bridal designer at a boutique in California.

[[462165653, C]]

"I never imagined I would find a dress like this," she said. "I've been obsessed with this designer since I was an undergrad."

As soon as Abedy put on the Zuhair Murad gown, she started to cry.

[[462310663,R,250,323]]

The plan was for the boutique to make alterations and ship Abedy the gown. But it never arrived.

The online tracking for Abedy's dress showed it crisscrossed the country for nearly a month. It started out in California on Nov. 9, made its way to Virginia on Nov. 20 and then was declared lost. The record showed it then was shipped back to California, then to Maryland. Then, on Dec. 4, it was in Illinois.

Abedy estimates she spent two hours per day trying to track down the dress.

"I'd been getting the runaround," she said.

If UPS could find the dress in their Illinois facilities, she volunteered to fly out to get it herself.

"I'll go pick it up. I'll do your job for you," she said.

[[462310553,L,250,298]]

The good news is that Abedy got the $5,500 gown insured. The bad news is she said she can't find the same dress anywhere at this same sale price.

"I remain hopeful that I'll get it by my special day. We'll see," she said.

On Tuesday evening, after News4 called UPS, Abedy said she finally got the news she had been waiting for: she said a UPS manager apologized to her and said the dress would arrive in Virginia that night.

The manager promised to personally make sure the dress got to her as soon as possible and even offered to pay for any last-minute alterations. 

[[462297543, R,250,333]]

On Wednesday morning, a UPS manager personally delivered the gown -- in a battered cardboard box -- to Abedy's parents' home in Fairfax. 

Congratulations to the happy couple!
