We predicted that a change in venue meant good things for the Fivestory sample sale, and we were right: When the doors opens at 11am this morning, everything will be 80% off retail prices, according to the sale host. Thank goodness, because when we went back to check in on what hasn't been grabbed since opening day, most of the merchandise we favored was only 60% off.
Be sure to stop in this weekend if there was a piece you had your eye on, or put your Summer Friday to good use and head over this afternoon. Since the fate of the boutique's home—and, hence, this sale—is up in the air right now, you don't want to miss your opportunity. It's taking place at 151 Wooster Street today through 7pm, tomorrow between 11am and 7pm, and Sunday between 11am and 5pm.
