Winter Shopping Wonderland
If the polar vortex is giving you serious cabin fever, beat a path to the Fashion Mall at Keystone this Saturday for their #SnowSTYLE! Event. From 1 to 5 p.m., you’ll find samples in the mall cafe, in-store deals, live entertainment, crafting opportunities for kids, and swag bags. Definitely worth digging your car out of the snow.
The Shopportunist: Wishard Sale
Think of it as a giant garage sale: Thousands of non-medical items will be up for grabs during a public sale this weekend at Wishard Memorial Hospital (1001 W. 10th St., 317-880-4789). Items include furniture, office chairs, desks, recliners, file cabinets, artwork, flat-screen TVs, computers, laser printers, microwaves, refrigerators, kitchen equipment, and more. Sale hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday.
Going, Going, Going …
Feeling lucky? Check out the auction sale at The Secret Ingredient (5631 N. Illinois St., 317-253-6632), going on now through next month. Here’s the deal: Prices are getting slashed ever more drastically from week to week, but if they aren’t quite low enough for you yet, you can bid for an item by writing on the tag the price you’re willing to pay. So if that cute cardigan is at 25 percent off now, but you’d buy it at 45 percent off, put in your bid—then, if it’s still around once the 45-percent-off sale rolls around, staffers will pull it from the racks and save it for you. Here’s the sale schedule:
25 percent off — Now
35 percent off — Starting January 20
45 percent off — Starting January 27
55 percent off — Starting February 3
65 percent off — Starting February 10
75 percent off — Starting February 17
