Things we've bought off of Gilt: sandals, an expensive bottle of olive oil (Gilt Taste), hotel rooms in NYC (Jetsetter), jeans. Things we've never considered buying off of Gilt but are nonetheless available: private concerts with singer Macy Gray.
The going rate for Macy to come to your house, sing for 45 minutes ("including material from her albums as well as exclusives") and pose for photo opps is, according to Gilt, $15,000. Oh, and we should note that there's a time and a date specified for the concert: August 7th from 10:30pm to 1am. Have at it right here.
