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.

On Sunday, October 6th, we hosted our first-ever Philly Mag Shops, a one-day-only warehouse sale featuring over 30 of the best boutiques and designers in the area. When we were planning the event, the idea was simple: Let’s create a shopping event we’d actually want to go to, featuring shops we actually want to shop in, at prices we can actually afford (and, hey, let’s have some lust-worthy pieces in there, too). Then we dreamed about what other stuff we’d want there: the best beauty treatments in the city (and let’s make them free, we said!), cool local designers we might not know about, cocktails, food, some cool-looking lounge areas. Oh, and major sales.

Philly’s Ultimate Shopping Event


The key to a fab closet is variety: plenty of styles, brands, textures and silhouettes. But flitting around to the best boutiques—especially when they’re scattered across the city and ‘burbs—is no easy task. (See: malls, invention of.) Enter Philly Mag Shops, our first-ever, one-day-only warehouse sale on Sunday, October 6th, from 12pm to 4pm.
