Save your pennies and mark your calendars! There are two fabulous sales coming up on the weekend of September 22nd in San Francisco:
The first is my all-time, favorite, best ever sale: The Macy's Passport Event. Donate $10 to AIDS research and you get a pass for 10-20% everything in the store. It includes designer jeans, handbags, housewares, shoes and further discounts on items that are already on sale. Only cosmetics, kate spade and coach are excluded. I went with Jean last year and bought pillows, jeans, jewelry, towels, etc. Plus, you can shop a few days before the sale starts using the pass and leaving your items there for pick-up over the weekend.
The second sale that weekend is at my favorite shop, The Ribbonerie. Visit their store on 15th and Portrero for discounts on gorgeous ribbons, vintage jewelry, antique linens and more. I believe the sale runs from the 20th through the 22nd. If you haven't been to this store before, this will be the weekend to go.
