Up to 60 Percent Off Bags and Shoes



    Up to 60 Percent Off Bags and Shoes
    Serious sales are available to shoppers who act now.

    The storefront at 117 Mercer Street.

    At noon Friday Monica Botkier opened her first stand-alone store at 117 Mercer Street in Soho, as a monthlong pop-up shop featuring her line of bags and shoes.

    When you boil it down, this pop-up shop seems like nothing more than a glorified three-week sample sale, as the store is only temporary and the prices are over 60 percent off. Which is all the more reason to go! Boots that were $675 are now $275, a clutch that was $395 is $150, and a nylon tote that was $450 is now $150.

    In addition, get a coupon for 20 percent off her items on the Web site with any purchase. Though the store will close on December 31, the designer says she's using the pop-up to "test the water" to see if she could handle a real long-term outpost, to which we say kudos for still holding on to retail dreams in this economy. Check out a sampling of the stock after the jump.
