Antique Wine Demijohns

Plus how to get happy on $10 a day and a serious sample sale (hint: Valentino)


CORKER: These vintage Bacchus demijohn bottles – rescued from all over Europe and dating to the 1700s – were once filled with wine, but now seem like something that might wash up on the shore of a deserted island. Price varies by piece. Available at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Signature Store at ABC Carpet & Home, 888 Broadway, 4th Floor; 646-602-3381.

CHEAP OUT: Heather Wagner’s book “Happiness on $10 a Day: 120 Activities to Make You (and Your Wallet) Happier Than Ever” is brimming with snappy, cheeky suggestions of how to treat yourself in a way that feels totally indulgent yet doesn’t exceed a tenner. Timely! $10 (natch) at BookCourt, 163 Court Street, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn; 718-875-3677.

SLASHED: Okay, probably this will run you a tad more than $10, but today and tomorrow (9/14-15), get up to 80% off apparel and accessories from luxe lines like Valentino Red and Heidi Weisel at a sample sale being held at the Park Lane Hotel. 36 Central Park South (entrance on 58th), 5th Floor; 212-920-1211.
