Barbour

Get 24% off a new jacket -- like this flyweight version for ladies -- when you donate outerwear at Barbour.

WAX ON: Starting today and running through November 26, get 25% off Barbour outerwear when you donate a castoff as part of their holiday coat drive to benefit less fortunate New Yorkers. Not that you need an incentive to add one of their iconic jackets, like the wax-coated cotton classic, to your wardrobe. 1047 Madison Avenue; 212-570-2600.

SHELTER: If you’ve had your eye on some pricey homewares, this is the weekend to pounce: Friday through Sunday, some choice home design retailers are participating in the Shop to Furnish a Future event. Spend $50 on your STFAF bracelet and you’ll be eligible to save 20% on select goodies at ABC Carpet & Home, 45% off something from Stickley, 20% off at Yves Delorme and more. Proceeds go to Partnership for the Homeless, in collaboration with New York Spaces Magazine.

LE STOCK: Through Sunday, score savings between 50 and 60% off on clothing, accessories (baubles, bags) and footwear by continental collective Surface to Air to round out the Euro-casual section of your wardrobe. 5 Crosby Street, Suite 6D.

IDLE HANDS: Your perfect Sunday: spend some quality time browsing the pre-holiday sale at the travel-themed Idlewild Bookstore, where books, maps and more will be marked down 20 to 50%. Then pop over to the next block for some City Bakery hot chocolate. November 15 only; 12 West. 19th Street; 212-414-8888.

WHIFF IT: If your neighborhood had a fragrance, what would it be? (And no, we’re not talking about the particular aroma of, say, Chinatown in August.) Sophia Sylvester’s Brooklyn Flavors soy candles have the answer: Park Slope’s a “floral mix of lavender, rose, gardenia and jasmine,” Red Hook brings you berries and coconuts, and Canarsie? Cookies and frosting. 5-oz. candles are $12, 9-oz. $17 at Brooklyn Flavors, 376A Argyle Road, Kensington, Brooklyn; 718-854-7486.
