Not sure if this is still going on (sorry dudes - late pass), but Foley + Corrina in the Lower East Side is (was?) having a private handbag sample sale. Call 'em up at 212-529-2338 to see if you can get an appointment to check out what's left of their selection of bags at 50 - 75% off.
I wouldn't be mad at their Mid City Tote in Ombre for like $200 or so. (Normally it's over $400.) Anyone gone? Went? Lemme know!
