The shops at the Metropolitan Museum of Art have been having a sale the last few weeks (shame on us, we were out of the country, so we just didn't get a chance to attend to blogging, but more about that in later posts), which ends on Monday, so here's your chance to get last licks in. The Museum has reduced tons of items (stock up now for Christmas, because it's not too early to think Santa -- despite the fact that it feels like summer outside!), and take advantage of the reductions up to 50% off original retail.
Here are but a few items you might find on sale: A Chinese trumpet-style "Butterfly" vase (porcelain), originally $85, now $57.38 (for members and $63.75 for non-members); a pearl-and-enamel chatelaine, normally $140 and on sale now for $62.99 (members) and $69.99 (non-members). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave., 212-570-3894; other locations include Rockefeller Center, 15 W. 49th St.; Macy's Herald Square, 151 W. 34th St.; 800-468-7386.
