Larry Olmstead at work
SOHO—Oregon-based leather-crafter Larry Olmstead of Entermodal is popping up shop in Odin, at 199 Lafayette Street. This Friday through Sunday, stop by to check out their spring '09 collection and watch Olmstead and his team hand-make bags and wallets. [Racked Inbox]
FLATIRON DISTRICT—The good people at Diane von Furstenberg have just informed us that the sale is getting a new shipment of samples tomorrow morning. The sale's at 260 Fifth Avenue between 28th and 29th, and it lasts until Saturday. [Racked Inbox]
FIDI—This Saturday and Sunday from 9:30am to 11:30am, downtown pet owners can bring their pets to the Salty Paw, at 38 Peck Slip, for a photo session with Santa himself. The store thoughtfully provides costumes to make sure pets are dressed appropriately for the occasion. All manner of four-legged friends are welcome, but you should probably leave your bobcat home.
