This week: Israeli design, sidewalk sale madness in Wicker Park, and big discounts for early birds at Krista K:
Tel Aviv Couture, a showroom for Israeli designers, holds another sample sale tonight and Friday from 4 to 8 PM in its River North space. Get up to 50 percent off on evening wear, accessories, ready-to-wear, and kids' stuff. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get out your walking shoes: this Saturday and Sunday both Wicker Park/Bucktown and the West Loop are hosting shopping events al fresco. Over 75 stores, including Robin Richman and Tangerine, will take park in the Wicker Park event (note: Wicker Park Fest also happening that weekend, but you don't need to fork over the $5 donation to browse local shops), while in the West Loop the stops include Tribeca and Koros.
On Saturday, the earlier you get to Krista K, the more you'll save at the shop's Shop Around the Clock sale. The discounts start at 50 percent at 8 AM and go down from there. If you must sleep in, you can still get 20 percent off from noon to 6.
