to shop / {sale alert} crate & barrel x baggu marimekko-ish exclusive

I have a weakness for good Baggu collaborations. This Crate & Barrel exclusive polka dot bag reminds me of the Marimekko Räsymatto print. It’s on clearance, which means its days are numbered!

to shop / {deal alert} baggu, laneige, and peach and lily

PSA — 30% off Baggu on Macy’s and up to $15 in gift cards from Target on Laneige purchases!

Macy’s has a VIP sale going on. Get 30% off lots of stuff including current season Baggu and 15% off beauty (they carry Peach & Lily and Shangpree masks).

Korean brand Laneige is clearing out of Target and moving to Sephora. I think most Laneige purchases get a $10 gift card, which stacks with the $5 gift card for $20+ beauty purchase for a total of $15 Target gift cards. Some stuff is sold out, but if you like this yogurt mask (use as overnight mask), you’re in luck. Especially since Target gift cards are like cash unless you have self-restraint of steel.

to shop / {sale alert} baggu sample sale in williamsburg

Baggu’s semi-annual sample sale is this weekend at their Williamsburg, Brooklyn store! They will have past season styles and samples.

March 5-6th
11AM-6PM | Saturday & Sunday
242 Wythe Ave, No. 4, Brooklyn, NY 11249

I’ve been to most Baggu sample sales since 2010. The sale is a wildcard — there isn’t a consistent mix of leather, nylon, or duck canvas. Over the years, the sales have also gotten more crowded, however, I haven’t stood in line (nor arrived before opening) for a while. Good stuff does sell out fast. I usually don’t see them restocking, but did for the first time during the last sale. Prices drop as the weekend winds down. The best prices are for samples or seconds (where any sign of a defect isn’t noticeable). The AT&T signal is pretty weak (in case you wanted to text photos to someone). See snapshots from the Spring 2014 sample sale on my Instagram under #irenelovesbaggu.

And here are some shots from the Fall 2015 sale below. While most products are very straightforward (e.g. a baby Baggu is a baby Baggu), the ‘duck bag with laptop sleeves’ box only had duck bags without laptop sleeves. Those 3D zip bags on the wall were also freshly stocked while I was there, and weren’t priced very excitingly.

What I got for myself and friends… The most exciting ‘deal’ was the $3 leopard regular Baggus.
