No Fretting: Fabulous Frette Sale
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

Two years ago, we hit the proverbial terrycloth jackpot at the Frette sample sale, paying something like $80 for a sumptuous robe that we know would sell for a few hundred bucks under normal circumstances. Not to mention all the other little “trinkets” we picked up. (Hey, you never know when you need to give a lovely house gift -- a few washcloths, divine soaps, a set of guest towels, whatever.) Starting Sunday, June 3, through next Thursday, June 7, Frette is having a great sale at Soiffer-Haskin, at 317 W. 33rd St. (just west of Eighth Ave.). Daily Sunday through Wednesday, 9am to 6:30pm, and Thursday, 9 am to 5pm. If you don’t know Frette, you’re in for a tactile surprise, as the goods are just sumptuous, Italy’s finest. Luxurious towels, linens, bedding, and home accessories, and even delicious lounge- and sleepwear. Absolutely worth the trip. As usual, no cash, no checks; credit cards only.
