Set your alarm early this Saturday for the Old Town Boutique District's 8th annual Warehouse Sale, where over 20 Old Town boutiques will offer select wares at 70 to 80 percent off retail prices. Goods include clothes, shoes, jewelry, housewares, gifts, and baby items.
The sale has become quite popular since it started in 2005, with three times as many vendors now participating and approximately 1,000 shoppers in recent years. The most determined of bargain searchers line up early with cups of coffee in hand hoping to be one of the first approximately 150 shoppers let into the sale. If you arrive when there's a line, have no fear, there is lots of indoor waiting room.
