Shopping Dallas at a Discount
There's tons of ways to maximize style while minimizing the wallet hemorrhage. The August Restaurant Week gets you into the door of exceptional restaurants at a cut prix fixe rate. SpaWeek is geared towards sampling fabulous spa treatments at a sinful price. Warehouse and Sample Sales abound, if you keep your eyes open (today was the last day for the Fashion Industry Gallery Finale Sale).
There are tons of craigslist postings, estate sales, and antiques shops to browse. If you don't have your own connection to the discounts at Dallas Market Center, you're probably anticipating one event for the whole year. For nine shopping days, a small card gets you 20% off at a host of Dallas's best retailers. The Partners Card (for a $60 donation to the Family Place) is the magic chit to get you into the club. Participating stores include Anichini, Cantoni, Ceylon et Cie, Kreiss, Kittrell/Riffkind ArtGlass, Lights Fantastic, SMINK Modern Living, West Elm (which isn't even open yet), and Z Gallerie. A full list is available here. Cards can be purchased at most merchants beginning 10/19/2006, just in time for the holiday shopping frenzy.
