We all love a bargain.
July is a great time to buy. Many retailers run sales. Most people are thinkin' sun tan lotion and not sofa.
Also for those of you in MA, sales tax is going up 8/1/9 from 5% to 6.25% so if you are thinking about any big (or big-ish) purchases you can save some if you pull the trigger in the next few weeks.
Orders must be delivered by 10/30/9 to qualify for the 5% rate. Items delivered Nov + will be at 6.25% At least that's my understanding of the new law.
Here are some places for bargains:
Smith and Hawken is closing. That's sad. Their online store has already closed, but retail locations are all running sales.
Robert Allen Outlet Check out their fabrics on sale.
Museum of Modern Art Store Cool stuff in general.
Michaelian and Kohlberg Rug clearance. One of my favorite places to look.
Half Price Drapes Name says it all….A client just told me about this place. Kinda interesting, no?
