The tail end of the summer sales season has arrived, those final weeks when every store in town attempts to offload its last pairs of size 5 1/2 sandals and sad halter tops. The prices are rock bottom right nowwell, as rock bottom as Nolita boutiques and cult designer labels ever get. We've decided to list when the sale officially began, so you at least have some inkling of how old the event is and how picked over it will be by now. Depending on the amount of merchandise on sale and when the event started, you could be looking at the cream of the crop or the stockroom dregs.
