BCBG has a big, tented warehouse sale twice a year in Vernon and as blogger Handbag Honey tells it, the event is an absolute disaster that's not worth dealing with. According to her report, the waits to get in exceeded four hours; people had lined up starting at 1 in the morning; there's no parking; once you've gone in and made your selections, there's a three-hour-long line to pay; and "inside the main tent, it's every woman for herself." There's gotta be a better way. [Handbag Honey]
