Starting today, Spence Chapin Thrift Shop, located at 1473 3rd Avenue (at 83rd street), is holding a bag sale. This is the deal...buy any bag ($50), and you can 'stuff it' with whatever you can. I suppose if you can fit a coat in there it's yours! Not a bad deal. Also, their current windows are full of fall merchandise...specifically shearling coats and jackets. Though the best one, a man's toggle coat that is very 'Michael Kors' inspired ( it looks small enough to fit a woman) won't be priced or available until after Labor Day. There is a chocolate brown long coat which is marked at $400, but is currently 30% off.
