The city's waking from its holiday slumber and our weekly Agenda post is back in action. Sales are the name of the game this week, with an even mix of end-of-season store cleanouts (including the beloved Fivestory Off-Site Sale) and promising sample sales (Cynthia Rowley won't have anything over $99 at hers). Looking for something a little older than last season? Check out the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show, which is focusing on the 1950s.
