Beyond The Pumpkin Patch:

This Week's Sales

Above please see the Old Navy Pumpkin Patch which took place over the weekend in the Meatpacking District. Unfortunately, the folks at Old Navy wound up with a gloomy, drizzly day for their Halloween festivities. The patch was "technically" free, and if you are looking to spend some cash, the sample sales continue to charge along at an unrelenting pace. It's worth noting that this is the time of year that used to see the beginning of the sample sale season, so we should be seeing more current in-season goods at the sales, which now are on a constant rotation.
From our inbox to you:
