If you weren't too impressed by the the PVC bags pictured in the preview photos for Botkier's Target collection out July 21st, take heart: the brand's spring/summer sample sale is coming up next week. The event will take place at 172 Mercer Street in Soho and will start Thursday, June 19th (through Sunday, June 22nd). Bags will cost around $150 to $300 apiece—not Target prices, but somewhat reasonable for a nice leather purse. [RackedWire]
