It’s a Buyer’s Market at Area Sale Events


Don’t forget – District Sample Sale tickets are on sale, and the VIP tickets tend to go quickly (in my experience, it’s the only way to go). The organizers haven’t released the official list of “Haute Pursuit” items for this year, but we’ve been told that items include a bracelet from David Yurman, a year’s supply of SmartWater and a handbag from U Street boutique Caramel. We also hear that the raffle will be a shopping “passport” with gift cards from each participating retailer.

Sounds like this might be one of the best years yet for bargain-hunting attendees at the DSS. As a result of the economy, items will be up to 90 percent off. Wardrobe overhaul, anyone?

And if you’re one of my Annapolis readers or plan to take a day-trip out to Annapolis this weekend, be sure to check out Sunday’s Annapolis Warehouse Sale at the Loews Annapolis Hotel (126 West St.). There’s a VIP hour from 12-1 in return for a $10 donation to charity Modest Needs, and from 1 on it’s free. Expect major discounts from boutiques like Madison, Horse, Saucy Shoes and Lilac Bijoux.
