    Whimsical homespun dishtowels at E.A.T. Gifts.

    SWEET GREEN: This pair of cotton dish towels is not only adorably retro – we kind of want to bake a pie just looking at them – but also emblazoned with subtle hints to make your kitchen more eco-friendly. $30 at E.A.T. Gifts, 1062 Madison Avenue; 212-861-2544.

    TOUGH: No, these leather chain gloves from Free People won’t actually keep your hands warm. Not even slightly. But they will make you look like your personal shopper is Joan Jett – and really, isn’t that so much better than avoiding hypothermia? $68; Free People, 99 Spring Street; 212-226-7497.

    GOING ONCE: This is your last chance – seriously – to score sample-sale deals from Soho’s Fifth on Main pop-up store. Through Sunday, grab women’s apparel and loads of accessories from the likes of Badgley Mischka and Cynthia Rowley at up to 70% off retail – and signing up on their website will even net you an additional 15% off. 421 West Broadway.

    BAR NONE: How’s your marathon training going? Allow us to give you a leg up: We recently got our hands on something called a K-Bar, a ridiculously tasty, fudgy, nutty thing that we could barely believe was actually not candy, but instead a protein bar of sorts (we generally can’t stand those, and think they should be eaten only if all other food options have been exhausted). Turns out it’s the brainchild of ex-Brooklynite and former private chef Krista Baber, who makes each good-for-you bar by hand. $3 each and available via

    ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING: We couldn’t forgive ourselves if you missed the massive Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show, which ends Saturday night at the Metropolitan Pavilion. So we’re telling you about it again. If you already went – and scored some fabulously swingy Peter Pan-collared twill cape straight out of the “Rosemary’s Baby” wardrobe trailer – please disregard this message. Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, 212-691-7297.
