ABC Carpet & Home Winter Tag Sale

If you’ve ever been to ABC Carpet & Home near Union Square, you’ll know that it’s full of great stuff for your home as well as your closets…  Through Sunday, January 22nd, the huge emporium is hosting its end-of-season sale.  While the signs say “up to 75-percent off,” most of the items I spotted were marked down 30-50% off the original price.
