Deal Alert: Sample Sale in Fort Point

This Saturday afternoon, March 20th 12pm to 4pm at a Fort Point venue called THE LOFT (319 A St., 3rd floor),  Boston boutique owners are gathering to unload items at excellent prices.

Boutiques include some of Boston’s best: Stil, Habit, Portobello Road, Velvet Fly, Flock, and French Dressing. Other vendors, such as Bryce Sin Care (organic and paraben-free), ICU-In Paris (gorgeous, on-trend jewelry) and Fabricadabra (a-mazing ikat pillows – I have three) will also be offering up their wares.

The only catch? It’ll cost you: $15 in advance, $20 at door. But ticket price includes 2 specialty cocktails and a gift bag. Click here to buy tix.
