Hat tip to Linda N. for letting me know about this truly amazing once-a-year, charity designer shoe sale.
From the description, this is the sale you go to, to buy the shoes, that go along with, the wedding dress you bought at Filene's Basement Running of the Brides Wedding Dressing Sale.
This shoe sale is actually so popular that the website includes a statement acknowledging that you have consulted with your physician and he has said that you are healthy enough to endure the rigors of going to this sale. Swear!
Thanks for all that, Bobbi, how about telling us about the actual shoe sale?
Here's the scoop.
Shoe Frenzy was starting in 1996 as a fund raiser for the Women's Clinic and Family Counseling Center on Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles. The first Frenzy had a few hundred pairs of shoes and ten bargain seekers standing in line. Today, twelve years later, shoppers come early to get numbered wrist bands for the privilege of standing in line for a chance to score one of thousands of pairs of shoes (including designer labels with retail prices of over $500 a pair.) All of these shoes are 50-90% off retail. Most are under $50. All are under $100.
This year's sale takes place on Saturday, September 6th, 2008 at the Veterans Memorial Complex Auditorium, 4117 Overland Avenue, Culver City, California. $1 for admission. Parking is Free. Doors open at 8:00 am. No line-ups prior to 7:00 am, but you may come early for a numbered line-up bracelet.
Check out their website. There's lots of info including pictures from shoppers of their bargain finds. You can also call their hotline at (310) 203-8899, ext 300 and leave your name, address or email address to be placed on their Shoe Frenzy mailing list.
Put your best foot forward and go to this sale.
