Now that we've covered your best bets at all of the department and mall store after-Christmas sales, it's time to hunt down the bargains at local indie boutiques. After the jump, we've got eight of your favorites, like Creatures of Comfort, Opening Ceremony, Dear Fieldbinder, Bird, and more. And if all of the end-of-year shopping gets you tired, you can head to Nolita's Gimme Coffee on New Year's Day for a free shot of espresso.
Creatures of Comfort: 50% off end-of-season clothing and more. Loads of winter accessories are on sale—perfect for those needing to stock up on hats, belts, scarves for this wave of cold weather.
Opening Ceremony: Up to 60% off fall and winter merchandise. If you weren't up for waiting in line for over an hour to shop the sample sale earlier this month, now you can score current-season goods for over half-off. There are also off-season items for 70% off.
Steven Alan: Take an extra 40% off Steven Alan collection sale merchandise, and an extra 25% off all other designers already on sale. This means that you can snag outerwear for under $300, jeans for under $150, and button downs for under $100.
A.P.C.: Up to 50% off selected fall and winter merchandise. If you struck out at the surplus sale, you can shop at their other two NYC stores for deals on current season goods, such as rabbit fur boots (now $240) and faux-fur lined parkas (now $382.50).
Dear Fieldbinder: Markdowns up to 80% off a wide selection of J Brand, Funktional, Myne, Jeffrey Campbell, Surface to Air, and other designers. From the looks of the online sale, not all of the merchandise is current season, but there is a good selection of season-less denim and accessories.
Bird: Up to 60% off selected merchandise, including Rachel Comey dresses, United Bamboo tops, A.P.C. jackets, and more. A wide selection of Etoile by Isabel Marant appears online but without prices, so head directly to the stores for these pieces.
Saturdays Surf: 25% off fall and winter items. Guys in need of jackets for this end-of-year cold spell can find down parkas for $300 and hoodies and sweatshirts for under $100.
Warm: 30% off selected apparel by designers such as Vanessa Bruno, athé, Tocca, Ace & Jig, and more. If you're looking for a bargain on those Warm x Aldo booties, don't get your hopes up—the staff says that those will probably never go on sale.
