Win Early VIP Access to this Saturday’s Decadestwo Sale!

By  | 

Decadestwo is a Los Angeles shopping tradition. The store is a consignor offering a bit of Hollywood glamour plus a great collection of pre-owned Chanel suits, vintage clothing and rare jewelry. A few months ago, I was lucky enough to meet and have a chat with the owner of Decadestwo, Christos Garkos. Click here to take a look at my interview with Christos and glimpse some of the Decadestwo treasures. There is amazing stuff in the store, and not all of it is pre-owned. Some of the items are brand new with tags. On a number of special occasions, the store offers discount sales throughout the store. This Saturday, Sept. 26 is just such an occasion. Everything in the store will be reduced 25%.

If you live in the LA area, you may have seen the crowds lining up on Melrose to gain first admittance to the sale. Some Chanel lovers have been know to camp out all night to be first in line to enter the shop and snatch up the deals. There has actually been a bit of pushing and shoving out on the street as dedicated shoppers have tried to rush in to the store like they were storming the Bastille. The lure of discount Chanel has such a strong appeal:) This is not a spectator sport.

Good news, if you are not a street camp out lover, as I am not, then The Recessionista has a deal for you. We are offering Exclusive EARLY Access to the sale. Decadestwo has graciously offered our readers exclusive early access to the sale. Here’s the deal. Ten of The Recessionista Blog readers will be allowed in the door at 10:30am—one half hour before anyone else. No need to spend hours lining up. Simply enter here by signing up for our newsletter via Feedblitz, or leave me a comment with your email address, letting us know why you want to be a Recessionista VIP at the Decadestwo sale. Ten lucky blog readers will be chosen from the entrants and notified before the sale. I will be giving the ten lucky winner’s name to Christos at Decadestwo so that they will be allowed exclusive admittance. If you watch Bravo, you know Decadestwo is the exclusive haunt of celebrity stylish Rachel Zoe. Now you can shop the store in Zoe mode, in a private shopping spree before the hoards of other bargainistas arrive.
