Update: Annual Rummage Sale!

Our Annual Rummage Sale is just around the corner, and we've got some exciting updates! In 2016, we're livening up the sale with a party atmosphere featuring prizes, giveaways and of course a hydration station to help you beat the heat. We've expanded our raffle, marked down some sexy styles, and, best yet, have a new approach to that infamous 'round-the-block line to get in. You won't want to miss this one, and it'll be easier than ever to get in and shop to your heart's content. Come and get it on July 17, 2016, only at 321 Linden St., San Francisco!

The biggest news of all is our line management system! No more lining up at 5am (unless you really want to). Instead, simply sign up for the time you'd like to come via EventBrite. We recommend you show up about 15-20 minutes early. We'll check you in on the guest list and do a preliminary sizing in line before showing you inside with the rest of your group. We also have a Premium Early Access Pass for a mere $25. A limited number of lucky patrons will get first chance at this year's selection, from 10am to 11am.

You can also buy raffle tickets while you're getting sized outside. This year's raffle will feature not just a gorgeous bespoke corset, but also two tiers of runner-up prizes: a MTO Signature Collection corset, and one of our amazing new Waspie Belts. Prize availability is based on the number of tickets sold, so to sweeten the pot we've got a fun giveaway for all patrons who buy at least 5 raffle tickets. Raffle tickets are only $5 each!

Speaking of deals, all Dita Von Teese lingerie will be 30% off! Every purchase of Dita Von Teese lingerie will get you a beautiful Dita Von Teese photo card. Spend at least $200 to receive an autographed photo card – but act quickly, we only have 6 of them left! We have knickers, half-slips, and suspender belts in European sizes 8-18, but we're down to our last few in size 10 (size small), and just one 20 and 22. As I write this, we have between 1 and 4 bras left for sizes 32A-C, 32E, 34B-D, and 36B-C. If you don't want to take your chances waiting for the discount and hoping your size doesn't sell out, come in today and play dress up with us!
