Come sale away
The ruthless shopper in me wants to keep this bit of information to myself (which arrived in my mailbox after this week’s issue went to press), but the loyal journalist is prying open my trap. I’m talking about two amazing sales in one weekend:
Bucktown boutique Robin Richman hosts its tenth annual sidewalk sale featuring shoes, jewelry and apparel (select pieces by lines including Imitation, Project Alabama and Ken Okada) from previous seasons along with vintage buttons, hardware fixtures and hangers—gallery-worthy pieces of art themselves. All in-store merch goes for 15 percent off, too. Don’t let pending rainstorms stop you; the store will be hosting this one come rain or shine. 2108 N Damen Ave (773-278-6150, robinrichman.com). El: Blue to Damen. Bus: 50, 56, 72. Fri 6, Sat 7, 10am-4pm; Sun 8, noon-3pm.
Word from hejfina about their annual spring sale also trickled in moments ago. Offering discounts of 30% off and more, it kicks off Fri 6 and runs indefinitely through the end of July. Now’s your chance to score pieces by lines you’ve only drooled over, including our two favorites: Alexanders/Alexandres (Wang and Herchovitch) and Band of Outsiders. 1529 N Milwaukee Ave, 773-772-0002, hejfina.com). El: Blue to Damen. Bus: 50, 56, 72.
