If our most recent Behind the Buy has inspired you to get in gear for the fall season, then we have great news: Knit Wit just kicked off a major end-of-season sale at its Bryn Mawr outpost. And we’re not just talking about a few scattered racks; there’s an entire room devoted to major designer deals.

One of my favorite vintage shops in the area, Malena’s Vintage, is tucked on a corner of semi-sleepy West Gay Street in West Chester. I’ve found some incredible pieces there, like this studded leather jacket and this crinoline slip; owner Malena has a great eye and, if you’re lucky, she’ll take you into her next-door showroom, where she stocks pieces that haven’t yet made it onto the store floor. Tomorrow, though, she’s opening up this secret showroom to the public — and discounting everything.
Because everybody loves a deal, and no one knows how to sniff them out like we do. Here is your guide to the deals, steals and secrets of shopping Philly on the cheap, and how to nab the city’s best freebies. And hey, it’s not all clothing and accessories here. We’ve got tech, culture and fitness classes in the mix, too. Keep reading and then flex your savvy shopping muscles. Read more »
The sale to shop now: Mushmina‘s major summer discount rack, where you’ll now get an extra 10 percent off globally sourced goods (tops, dresses and, my fave part, baskets), all already discounted up to 60 percent off. While you’re there, check out the brand-new selection of fringed and embossed leather bags and hand-loomed Moroccan carpets. It’s all the perfect way to indulge summer wanderlust.
The Details: 164 East Lancaster Avenue, Wayne.
The first email to ding into our inboxes this morning — at 12am sharp — was from Philly-based jewelry brand Geography 541. You’ve probably read about the brand on our blog (if not, check this out!); we’re huge fans of Madeline Tolle’s gypset-style, year-old line of accessories, each one handmade in Philly, featuring handwoven textiles, colorful tassels and antique brass. And, thanks to the early-morning email, we know that today only, in honor of Madeline’s birthday, everything on the site is 40 percent off. (Use code BDAY.)
I’ve scrolled through the collection several times today. Here’s what’s currently in my shopping cart: Read more »

If you find yourself wandering Rittenhouse — specifically, the 1600 block of Walnut Street — this week, here’s a tip: Pop into TownHome. The jewelry store is very tiny, very lovely, and very air-conditioned. It’s also very much in summer sale mode.
This week, every single piece is up to 50 percent off. While they can’t name-drop, I can tell you this: The sale is storewide, and they carry brands like Dana Rebecca, Me+Ro, Jamie Kole and Jennifer Zeuner. So you do the math.
The Details: TownHome, 1616 Walnut Street, Rittenhouse, 215-972-5100.
