Max Mara Sale

Max Mara Sale

There weren't many takers tonight at the Max Mara sale.  That's probably because there wasn't anything fabulous to buy - despite the racks upon racks of merchandise.  What was on sale appeared to be leftovers from past seasons.  Quite a selection of sample tops and blouses - size 6 or 8 - priced between $100-$200.  The handbags and shoes were uninspiring. The same f[...]

Mayle Farewell Sale

Mayle Farewell Sale

I stopped by designer Jane Mayle's boutique on Elizabeth Street in Nolita to check out her closeout sale.  I arrived there about half-an-hour before the end of the sale to find a long line (the Mayle-philes certainly turned out tonight).  Needless to say, I was concerned that I wouldn't get in.  But to my surprise, the sales girls came out to assure everyone in line[...]

Sigerson Morrison sale

Sigerson Morrison sale

Sigerson Morrison shoes are de rigueur for style-conscious New Yorkers.  I'm a big fan of FIT grads Kari Sigerson and Miranda Morrison's simple, clean and modern designs.  When I use to live in Nolita, I would stop by the chic little shop on Prince Street to check out the season's new styles. For months, I've been waiting for this sale to finally take place.  So [...]

Furla Handbag Sale

Furla Handbag Sale

The Italian handbag maker Furla was taking up to 70 percent off handbags, shoes, and accessories on April 22-23rd.  There were a lot of 80's inspired bags - an ongoing trend that won't go away.  Not a lot of stuff at the sale caught my eye, except for a red hobo with silver straps - the $395 price tag was a bit costly for what it was.  

Francesco Biasia Handbag Sale

Francesco Biasia Handbag Sale

I bought my first Francesco Biasia handbag in Rome before they were available in New York.  Back then, I didn't know what I had.  I just knew that it was a chic Italian-made handbag of exquisite leather.  When I travel abroad, I try to look for interesting unique things that can't be found here.  Of course, when I learned about this week's Francesco Biasia sale, I h[...]

Brooklyn Flea is back...

A sure sign that spring has sprung... On this perfect Saturday after such a long winter, Brownstoner's Brooklyn flea in Ft. Greene returned this season.  With the 70-degree weather, I didn't need a jacket to browse the wares of more than 150 vendors selling outside Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School.  This huge flea market - one that could be Brooklyn's largest - [...]
