Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
We know we've filled your plate today with some great sample sales, but you're really going to want to make time to check out the Mobile ebay Boutique. It motored over to Hollywood and Highland for just two short days; from the story our Racked operative tells, the Boutique could be here for two weeks, and no one would be complaining. (Except for maybe the street performers, especially the skinny guy in what looks like Spider Man pajamas.) It's 75% shopping, 25% experience. But back to the shopping?
They've loaded the truck up with a lot of the big holiday trends—the Zhu Zhu hamsters, Tickle Me Elmos, and some Ed Hardy duds. However, there's also an assortment of the high-end finery that makes us go weak in the knees. Like the Balenciaga bag. Prada shoes. Some O-T-N Loubs.
These items were not properly for sale on Thursday; some will be available on Friday. And if that doesn't motivate you, how about this: if you're one of the first 100 people to show up at noon on Friday with a secret password (find out more here), you get a $50 gift card.
