We're currently in the sample sale desert known as "August," but if you happen to be staying in the city and not headed out east this weekend, we've found a few to keep you busy. On the docket: Discounted fancy furniture, eveningwear, and affordable vintage finds.
No 6 Vintage Sale
When we stopped by this boutique's sale yesterday, almost nothing was over $100, including the brand's signature clogs, which rounded out to an even $100. Expect prices and styles to look like a top-quality consignment shop.
