Budin—the Greenpoint coffee shop that made headlines last year for serving New York City's most expensive latte—is hosting a sample sale this weekend that jives with its minimalist, Scandinavian-influenced interior. Tomorrow and Sunday from 11am to 7pm, find deals on Marimekko, Finnish home goods brands Tonfisk and Iittala, apparel from Icelandic fashion brand Farmer's Market, and a collection of Scandinavian art books.

After you're done, post up in the cafe's cute backyard (presumably with your $10 latte), or make a day of it by copying Greenpointer Samantha Pleet's guide to the perfect day in the neighborhood.
