FLATIRON—That uber-cute (and crazy cheap) Danish home goods store we told you about finally opens tomorrow at Broadway and E. 21st Street. Expect to find quirky items (think moustache-shaped sponges), among the racks, where pretty much nothing is over $15.
LOWER EAST SIDE—If this weekend's giant crop of sample sales didn't already drain your bank account, hit up Dreamers Abound, a pop-up-slash-sample sale at 90 Orchard Street, today through Sunday, 10am–8pm. Find picks from Jill Lindsey, Valentine Lingerie, Lumber Juan reclaimed wood furniture, Landmark vintage bikes, and more.
UPPER EAST SIDE—The sister-owned, millennial-centric boutique the Upper East Side needed, Sam & Lex, is kicking off a 30% off sale in their store this weekend, where you'll find Mara Hoffman (hello, swimsuit weather!), Veda, and more cool-girl brands.
SOHO—Tonight from 6pm to 8pm, the still-sort-of-new Woolrich store will debut their collab with Almond Surfboards, called "Wax and Wool." There's both men's and women's pieces, including tees, beach blankets, totes, sweatshirts, and even custom Woolrich-inspired surfboards. To celebrate the launch, there'll also be music and free Dogfish Head beer.
UPPER EAST SIDE—Parisian pop-up #IWASTHERE is stopping by NYC this weekend, starting tomorrow through the 21st, then again May 26th through May 29th. Located at The Drawing Room (40 East. 75th St, Suite 2A), you'll find designs by EKAT, an up-and-coming Czech designer recently seen on Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora.
MIDTOWN—Tomorrow from noon to 3pm, stop by the Bryant Park WeWork office for a clothing swap, drop, and shop. Along with gently used clothing from your fellow shoppers, there'll also be a donation bin, as well as indie and vintage designer pieces from Brooklyn-based Shirley + Alice in a special pop-up boutique area. With your minimum $10 donation, you'll also score music, cocktails, treats, and the chance to mingle with actor and activist Gbenga Akinnagbe from The Wire. Proceeds benefit Susan's Place, a 200-bed homeless women's shelter in the Bronx.
