Rummage Sale Update: Discounts on Corset Floor Stock!

Rummage sale time approaches rapidly!  It's just three weeks away, on Sunday, July 14.

In one week we'll begin accepting your consignments corsets that you've outgrown or perhaps outshrunk and would like to send on to a new, loving home.  Email boutique@darkgarden.com with the subject, "Rummage sale consignment," to arrange corset check-in.


But the big news for today is the event discount for the rummage sale: We'll be offering a 10% discount on floor stock, making space for new lovelies coming down the line.  If you've been eyeing a particular piece for a while and no one's snatched it up yet, this is the perfect time to buy.  To put that in hard numbers, discounts are as follows (more or less):
-Cinchers and Corselettes are $27-$47 off
-Sweethearts and Victorians, $35-$60 off
-Valentines, $40-$65 off
-Dollymops, $35-$80 off
-Risqué styles, $43-$55 off

Here are some ideas of what you can use that money for, at our shop or around the neighborhood.  Warning: all my non-Dark Garden suggestions have to do with food, booze, or both.
-The discount on a poplin Cincher from our Basics Wall will buy you its matching back panel, or two delicious (and strong!) drinks from Absinthe, plus tip.  (Corset rummage sale + brunch cocktails = perfect day.)
-The discount on a Sweetheart could get you a Pop Antique fascinator, or a sushi dinner at Domo.
-The discount on a Valentine might go to a pair of Honey Cooler Handmade panties, or a round or two at Smuggler's Cove.
-The discount on a Dollymop can pick up the tab for a coordinating brooch or fascinator by Kalico Delafay Millinery, or an adorable, delectable cake from Miette.


The discount on floor stock will also apply to our "Cinderella" box, Tailored Cinchers, Alexandras, Ambroses, Madames, etc.: any of our corsets that you can walk in and take home immediately at present.  The discount does not apply to our consignment corsets, which are unique to the rummage sale and will be heavily discounted to begin with.



Put the annual Dark Garden Rummage Sale on your calendar and bring a friend, and we'll see you there!  We're at 321 Linden St., in beautiful Hayes Valley, San Francisco, and we'll be open from 11-6 for the event.
