Just one of the awesome shops you can shop this Saturday | Images via Occasionette Instagram
It’s sidewalk sales and block parties galore this weekend! If you’re looking for another stellar way to spend your Saturday, we suggest hitting up the East Passyunk Avenue Antique and Vintage Sidewalk Sale. Between 8am and 4pm, the sale will be split into two sections: in the parking lot between Tasker and Morris, shoppers will be able to peruse antique and vintage homewares, clothing, furniture, jewelry, and other odds and ends from dozens of local vendors. Between Morris and Mifflin, shoppers can lookout for sidewalk sales from brick-and-mortar shops, along with tasty treats setup outside.
The party doesn’t stop at 4pm, though!

The massive Kensington warehouse of Maggpie Vintage Rentals is a vintage furniture lover’s Mecca. There are vintage sofas and chairs, all manner of tables (gilded, wicker, weathered enamel, elephant-shaped—that one’s mine, guys, if it goes up for sale), and various other accessories (screens, china, trunks). Think of the best flea market you’ve ever been to. Multiply that by a million. That’s Maggpie.
The thing is, this stuff isn’t for sale. It’s all rentable for things like parties, photo shoots, weddings, events—and Philly Mag Shops (Maggpie is our fearless design team for the event, and a huge reason it all looks so darn cool). Well, the stuff wasn’t for sale … until now.
Get the secret sale details here.
Date: Sunday, October 5th
Time: 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Location: Crane Arts Building, 1400 North American Street, Philadelphia.
Cost: $25; buy three get one half-off.
Let’s get this out of the way: This is a post telling you to buy tickets to Philly Mag Shops. BUT! Don’t write it off as a shameless plug quite yet. (Hear me out first and then you can write it off as a shameless plug.) I wouldn’t steer you wrong, and I certainly wouldn’t put Shoppist’s great name on any event that I wouldn’t go to myself. And this event is awesome—if I do say so myself.
Here’s the deal: We’ve hand-picked over 30 local boutiques and designers to gather at Crane Arts on Sunday, October 5th. And they’ll all be selling new, in-season merchandise at up to 40 percent off. (The breakdown: All apparel is 40 percent off, all jewelry is 25 percent off, and everything else (shoes, bags, scarves, home goods, etc) is 30 percent off. It’s basically the sale of the century.

Four basics you’ll keep going back to. | Photos via Toggery.
In my opinion, it’s way more fun to splurge on some fantastical, crazily impractical item. To wit: This pair of Alexander Wang metallic blue fur Pilgrim-toed heels, one of my more impulsive—but most fun—splurges. (Hey, now they’re on mega-sale! Go and get a pair!) So when a sale on basics rolls around, it jolts me back to reality: Oh, right. Yes. Basics. I need those, too.
The most recent sale to catch my attention: Toggery’s end-of-summer sale, featuring basics that pack more of a punch, and are totally worth the slightly heftier price tag than their Gap or Old Navy counterparts. (Plus, it’s a Philly brand! Support!)

Happy (almost) holiday weekend, Shoppists! Let’s kick this sucker off with a crop-topped, maxi-skirted, platform-clogged bang. Here are the best sales to shop this weekend.
See ‘em all here.
It’s wheeling and dealing time at the Jersey Shore, folks. Not only will hotel room prices drop after this weekend, but you can also get everything from boogie boards to flip flops to island-branded t-shirts for far less than you’d have paid in May.
But if you know where to go (psst: we do) deals go much deeper than that. Here are four that should be on your list if you’re headed down the shore before school starts back up again.
