It’s conventional wisdom that New York has the best shopping in the world. We have the best sample sales and end-of-season consolidation always calls the Big Apple home. When it comes to deals at discount stores, however, the good stuff is sometimes sent far away.
Last week, we got an email from a reader in Illinois alerting us to all the great bags that she found at her local TJ Maxx store. There are Saint Laurent’s Ligne Y Satchels, Fendi 2Jours, Valentino Rockstuds and Proenza Schuler PSIIs. The large Y bag from Saint Laurent is priced at $1000 from $1795 and the large 2Jours are $1699 from $2350.
We couldn’t help ourselves from investigating our closest TJ Maxx, on 100th and Columbus. We are so sad that report that the store had virtually no desirable designer items. After combing the store we could only report find a pair of embellished B Brian Atwood booties for $117, Dior peep-toe pumps in patent royal blue for $379 from $750 and Roberto Cavalli jeans with gems along the seams for $250 from $625.
There are more pictures from our Illionis tipster after the jump. Please feel free to share great find from your local discount store in the comments section below.
