Assuming that the first day of fall (tomorrow!) means less sweat-inducing temps, this weekend's an opportune time for an all-day retail therapy sesh. This Saturday, bargain hunters may want to park themselves at Melrose Avenue for the stretch's second-ever sidewalk sale.
Happening from 12 to 6pm, the day-long shopping bash promises bargains, booze, and freebies from Fairfax to Highland Avenues. Participating shops and eateries include Urban Outfitters (10% off using their smartphone app), Glow Bio (gratis smoothie samples), wacky footwear brand John Fluevog, swimwear boutique Lenceria (up to 50% off select items), Rust Hair Salon (35% off women's and men's walk-in cuts), sneakerhead haven Sportie LA, and many others.
Into it? Scope out the full roster here.
