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. Other times we luck out.
This season, the DSW on Union Square has a great assortment of designer bags that could have you shooting south down Fifth Avenue– straight past Bergdorf Goodman. A black Valentino Rockstud tote is $1800 from $2345, a conventional Gucci top handle bag is $500 from about $1000 and a two tone Fendi bag is $2000 from $2654. You can see pictures from inside the store right here. A lot of the same style are available online here but the colors differ in stores. Ironically, the shoe selection isn’t very good.
Take note that DSW has lots of coupons and promotions. Right now, you can earn $10 back in a DSW Certificate for every $75 you spend. We suggest holding off and waiting for a straight discount code that ranges up to 25% off.
