"The sale is going on all weekend, but I don't think they're restocking. A number of women were asking for sizes for a few styles, and they were told that what's available is out. There were some styles though, that they seem to have lots of sizes for a few of the flat sandals, for instance. Also, it pays to rummage around: People are trying on shoes all over the place and not necessarily returning them to the correct places. So if you spot something you like but it's not your size, hold on to it and keep an eye out for it on the ground or in a pile of discards. And bring cash! The nearest atm is at a nearby deli and it's a few blocks' walk from the nearest bank." [Above the Fray: Matt Bernson's Getting Picked Clean]
