Happy Friday! This weekend is jam-packed with sales, from the NoLibs annual sidewalk sale (a don’t-miss event) to deals in Rittenhouse, Fishtown, Bryn Mawr and Merion. Here are the best ones to hit up now. Let’s get started …
Bradamant, the Philly boutique and line of bodysuits and undergarments, is temporarily closing its Walnut Street doors while they prepare to move locations. They’re bidding Rittenhouse farewell with an event tonight from 5pm to 7pm.
Bradamant is partnering with L’Occitane (right across the street!) for the fete. Stop by both stores, shop, enjoy refreshments and be sure to leave your name and email to be entered to win a gift basket. (You’ll want to win this; it includes a bodysuit from Bradamant and an assortment of skincare products from L’Occitane.) Still no word on where Bradamant is moving, but check back next month for more updates. Read more »

Clear your calendar: This Saturday, the Center City Anthropologie store is auctioning off its current colorful window displays. Yes, those displays. Those awesome little trinkets, hanging structures, and oddball curiosities that you find scattered in the windows. The ones that make you want to curl up on their perfectly made-up beds, lounge on their cool old couches and all but move in. And the ones currently in the window right now (pictured above!) are being auctioned off. Yup. You can own them.
All winning bids for the displays go towards Art Sphere, Inc., an awesome non-profit organization that helps empower Philly residents through the arts. The auction is silent; to bid on a display, visit the Anthro store at 1801 Walnut Street on Saturday, March 28th from 10am to 8pm. Those with winning bids will be notified the week of March 30th, and will be responsible for transportation of their displays. (Get a sneak peek of some of the displays here.) Read more »
This week’s current item to covet: these insanely cool bracelets at TownHome. The simple beauties — hammered silver and gold-plate on a silk cord — are handmade by Parisian designer Nilaï (warning: the site’s all in French).
The bracelets are $95 each, and TownHome currently has only eight in stock (two gold, four silver, and two silver on a chain instead of the cord). Read more »
With swimsuit season lurking just around the corner, your time at the gym might be on the rise in the next few months. But we’ve found an athletic line with local roots that will have you loving every second of your workout or, at the very least, will get you pumped up to hit the gym.
Behold: Strut-This. Founded in 2011 and run by two mother-daughter duos (one on the Main Line, the other in LA), the line of athletic wear features ultra-trendy prints and sporty styles including pants, capris, sports bras, jackets and shorts. The online store is to die for … or run for. (Same thing, right?) Read more »
Time to talk spring sales. Omoi Zakka Shop, the quirky little boutique on Pine Street, is dishing out deals on supremely giftable goodies. The prices are such that you can stock up on things like Philly-made Hand In Hand soap (the best hostess gift ever), Crayola-colored Baggu pouches (perfect for stowing away jewelry), and cute/insanely practical Bento boxes (pop a gift inside one of these for a cool — and usable — alternative to a gift box, or give on its own). Quantities of all are limited, so shop now. Tip: If you live locally, order online and choose to pick up in store. Read more »
Rittenhouse stalwart Knit Wit is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this week. Yes, you read that right: fifty.

Consider it the perfect excuse to shamelessly stock up on spring apparel.
Happy birthday, Knit Wit! Love, Shoppist. Read more »
