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.
