I have never been, but Lucky Shops is just around the corner. Previous attendees say the discounts are good, although not unheard of with all the sample sales going on these days. But even if you don't buy tons, the free drinks, goody bag, and free 1 yr subscription to Lucky Magazine makes it worthwhile.
