Sample Sally investigated Tribeca shoe store Anbar's closing sale. Her verdict: "The place was pretty much picked over. I did spot a handful of jewels but I really had to look hard. A pair of Lanvin pumps are $207 (originally $945), Miu Miu stilettos for $200 (originally $795), and Prada suede boots on sale for $400. There were quite a few summer and fall shoes (Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Lilly Pulitzer, Taryn Rose and more) that were going for $100 and up. The deals were in the basement – summer shoes from seasons past for around $60. The catch: Not a lot of sizes and limited selection." [Sample Sally; Previously]
