Got $1000 to burn and a hankering for something handmade and hypertextured in your closet? Then you'd better RSVP now for the Rodarte sample sale taking place tomorrow and Wednesday on W. 38th Street. Prices will range from $40 to $4000, according to Madison Avenue Spy, but expect most items to cost around $1000. That's one grand in cash, by the way—the sale doesn't accept credit cards. Which might be crazy, but at least it encourages responsible spending, right? If you have to visit the bank before visiting the sale, you'll get a visceral sense of exactly what $1000 feels like before you hand it over.
