WEST VILLAGE—Adding credence to that rumor about Marc Jacobs looking to grab up more space in the West Village, another tipster writes: "I also heard that Marc Jacobs will be taking over space on corner of Bank and W. 4th. That is a hair salon right now. I heard this from a stylist at Avalon who is very in the know." [RackedWire Inbox]
WEST VILLAGE—There are a ton of shopping events taking place over the next few days. One is the Fat Girl Flea Market, which is pretty much what it sounds like. Patrons can browse through new and gently-used clothing (sizes XL - 6X+) from 11am to 8pm on Saturday at the Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Transgender Community Center (208 W 13th St between Seventh and Greenwich Aves).

SOHO—Shopping event number two is the Cockpit USA & PF Flyers fall fashion preview taking place Saturday from 1 to 4pm at the Cockpit store in Soho (652 Broadway between Bleecker and Bond). They're promising free cocktails and snacks. Oh, and they'll have PF Flyers shoes for sale. [RackedWire]
WEST VILLAGE—Last but certainly not least, shopping event no. 3 is New York Magazine's Best Bets extravaganza taking place next week on October 3rd and 4th 11am to 7pm.
