CHELSEA—Even marketplaces are having end-of-season sales these days. Right now, plenty of the vendors at Chelsea Market's Artists & Fleas are offering discounts, like 25% off finished jewelry from Brooklyn Charm, half-off select merchandise at Spectre & Co., and discounts on Pamela Barksy's cheeky pouches (one for $10, two for $18, or three for $24). The sale is running daily through Sunday, and if you go on Thursday between 6pm and 9pm, you can drink for free while shopping.
MANHATTAN—Of all the gyms offering "new year, new you"-esque plans right now, Refine Method's is one of the best out there. Commit to taking at least two classes per week between now and March 31st at any of its three locations, and each class is just $25 (normally $34), no matter how many you buy. Learn more about the challenge here.
SOHO—The Lafayette Street location of Tiny Empire has closed down again, according to Bowery Boogie. The Brooklyn-based juice and smoothie shop is "'temporarily closed' for unspecified 'emergency maintenance/construction,'" according to signage, but the neighborhood blog doesn't have high hopes for its return.
PARK SLOPE—Eleven Consignment Boutique has extended its "crazy winter sale" at 71 5th Avenue through Friday, meaning you've got a few extra days to pick up vintage pieces for a lot less. According to its Instagram, tops and skirts are $5 and shoes are $15, and coats are the most expensive item at $25.
