A trunk show is a great way to get your hands on some unique hand-crafted jewelry and also meet up with the jewelry designers who create the jewelry. Normally, the shop will host trunk shows and designers will come to hang and chat with customer as well as bring extra merchandise to tempt them with.
This Thursday, Sept. 20th, those in the New York area can shop the Lower East Side, pick up some designer jewelry and other bargains, and help out a good cause. Here are the details from the Clarabella weblog:
As a part of the Lower East Side shop night, Clarabella will be host to 3 gorgeous designers: Kristen Aronsson (bags), Nicole Gagne of Leoworks (jewelry) and Page Sargisson (jewelry). These lovely women will all be here with the very best of their collections both old and new. Items will be available for roughly 25% less than normal retail, so it's a fantastic time to stock up on some new accessories. Not to mention, we'll be offering 10% off all other items in the shop for one night only!
Here's a little more info from a press release I received:
The Lower East side is host to an array of shops, bars and restaurants – an eclectic mix of the historical and the trendsetting. While the neighborhood has undergone some changes in recent years, one thing remains the same: a love and appreciation for New York's downtown and the truly special shopping experience it provides. Vintage, emerging designers, eco-friendly, local, hand-made, European, South American – the collective of shops in the L.E.S. offer it all.
The owners of a selection of boutiques, bars and restaurants have decided to band together to celebrate the neighborhood with a series of monthly events. The first one will be host to designer trunk shows and exclusive sales held throughout the neighborhood. Select bars and restaurants will offer drink specials. Additionally, each store will donate 10% of the evening's sales to the L.E.S. Girls Club of New York. So put on your walking shoes and join us in what we hope will be the first of many neighborhood events featuring local boutiques, bars and restaurants.
When: Sept. 20, Shops from 6 – 10pm, Bars & Restaurants from 9 – midnight!
Where: Lower East Side
