Fred Flare's Budget Cuts piggy bank.
SOME PIG: This smooth 9” porcelain porker is here to provide the incentive to save up for what really matters, as depicted on its choice cuts: Underwear, takeout, scratch tickets, lipo. Time to inventory what’s under your couch cushions. The Budget Cuts Piggy Bank is $24 at Fred Flare, 131 Meserole Avenue, Greenpoint, Brooklyn; 718-349-1257.
BONANZA: More than 150 big-name designers (Calvin Klein, Yves Saint Laurent, Fendi, Band of Outsiders, and so many more) have donated $1 million worth of merchandise that’ll be tagged at 50 to 70% off retail at the Housing Works Fashion for Action sale, co-chaired by Derek Lam and coordinated with Gilt Groupe, which kicks off tonight with a private shopping preview at the Chelsea Thrift Shop, followed by an auction gala at the Rubin Museum. The sale event is then open to the public from November 19-22, and all proceeds go to Housing Works’ lifesaving services for homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. More information and tickets here. 6-7PM.
DOUBLE DEAL: Starting today and running through Sunday November 22, stock up on updated preppy classics at the Privé-hosted Hickey/Original Penguin sample sale at Chelsea Market, where men’s fall samples and stock will be slashed between 60 and 80% off retail.
