If you're already feeling dizzy with the number of "sale! sale! sale!" e-mails in your inbox, allow us to highlight a couple of real winners for today—both conveniently located downtown.
Stop by Mick Margo, an unbelievably charming little shop tucked away on Commerce Street in the West Village, for a special trunk show of designer Danielle Pitman's delicate jewelry from 6:30-8:30PM. Not only will her gold holiday pieces be 30 percent off, but a limited number of samples from past seasons will be 50 percent off.
Afterwards, head over to Earnest Sewn in the Meatpacking District and check out their new back room installation called "Recession Proof" (clever!). Essentially, they've packed tons of great stuff from a variety of labels—Moleskin notebooks, 80%20 shoes, Digby & Iona jewelry, Quail clothing, etc.—all under $50! Just think: You could do all your holiday shopping in one place. Best of all, the installation is running all month, and also coincides with the canned food drive the store is also doing to benefit The Food Bank for New York City and New York Cares. For every can you bring in, you'll get an extra 1% off. It adds up, people!
