Botkier 30% off pop up store

The concept of pop-up stores is so interesting. I suppose it's a win/win situation for a retailer to 'try on' a shopping area while the property owner collects rent on an otherwise empty space. I guess goes hand-in-hand with the current economic times.

Another market-related observation: the continuous and ongoing discounting. At this rate we'll never want to pay full price again!

Kwigy-bo sale report

I missed the last Kwigy-bo sale, so I had to go to this one! My dog, my puff puff Keeshond, is fairly sizable and has absolutely no need of sweaters, but I went in search for some sweaters for the cats and presents for my friends' dogs. Imagine a room of boxes of various sized mini sweaters, t-shirts, and coats, a stack of dog beds on a table, and carriers around the room. Add to that 6 women clucking and fretting: Will this fit? But my dachsund is so long! Should I get this for my daughter's pug?

All apparel (for both boys and girls) was $5! A steal if you consider prices for clothing can range from $7 at Target to $60 for a retail Kwigy-Bo sweater. Carriers were priced up to $45, and there were a few small dog beds too. Below are some of the things I saw. I got my new kitten the teddy-bear sweater with ears-- how cute is that!? A great sale, and no pushing, shoving, or nudity involved.

I don't shop Lord & Taylor, but somehow I am on their mailing list. I got their F&F mailer yesterday, which includes 2 punch out F&F cards which entitle the bearer to 25% off almost everything in the store (except for Uggs, swimwear, and jewelry/watches) and 10% off cosmetics and fragrances. I don't know if you can get the discount without the card, but you can probably go to customer service on the days of, just tell them you forgot yours at home, and pick up a card. Or just find a sympathetic sales associate.

There's no online code component to it that I can find. Starts Thursday, Dec 11th through Monday, Dec 15th.
