Softie, what are the bags and prices like at this "blue bag" place? I always like to hear of a new handbag store.
[snapback]408234[/snapback]
very mixed prices...i'd say $100-$300 range...but that's a very rough estimate...definitely worth checking out...very different and unique pieces...also have a select number of shoes and swimwear in summer...

...i basically never leave this neighborhood except to go uptown to barney's now and then...
if you go to jeffrey's alexander mcqueen is on the same block along with a few other stores... keep your eyes open over there in the meatpacking district...

cdg is in the middle of a bunch of galleries...the only other store over there is balenciaga..(yawn)...but the store is worth checkig out if you haven't been yet...gorgeous silver space age wonderwall...

IF (30% off) and Yohji (40% off) are on Grand
Bagutta (50% off) is now next to the Helmut Lang store (green, spring/broom)
A (30% off).
Jeffrey is 30-40% off, depending on how well they do before the sales start.

Thanks for the info everyone, you've all been very helpful!

I'll definitely look into What Comes Around Goes Around.

I also read somewhere that "Cheap Jack's" is NOT cheap :lol can someone who's been there verify?

vintage in ny is not cheap in general my dear...that's why i rarely bother...
what goes around comes around is the most expensive...it's real vintage from the 20's...etc...more like costume than clothing...cheap jack's is about average...
and the selection is great...alice underground ...on lower bdwy just up the street from pearl river is another good bet...

also check out st mark's place (another name for e.8 street)...vintage/sex shop-search and destroy...trash and vaudeville-punk paraphenalia...plus various t-shirt/accessory stores...

I guess I might just thrown in INA, a designer consignment store. The men's store is in Nolita (I don't remember if it's on Mott or Mulberry, just below Houston).

How is the men's store? I know the womens store gets some good stuff, but I've never heard anything about the men's selection.
