And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) West 30s: This fine morning witnessed the opening of the doors at the Mayle sample sale (above). And chaos, predictably, ensued: "One woman lost her shirt, literally—took it off for a second, put it down, and looked away, only to look back and realize another rabid shopper had snatched it up."
2) Noho: Those hoping for a rebirth of the Bowery of old—well, uhh, there's this anyway: the forthcoming Rogan store in the former Bouwerie Lane Theater/Jean Cocteau Repertory is sporting a new jet-black, coffin-esque interior.
3) Boerum Hill: The new location of Brooklyn Tattoo is open, and Racked has a photogallery. Piercings to follow!
