1) Chelsea: Of course, Racked has been all over the epic Hermes Sale going on through Saturday. There was the Longest. Line. Ever. There was a report from inside and a follow-up report that it was calm in there.
2) Bowery: Billy Reid's store is opening this week in the Bouwerie Lane Building on Bowery and Bond. Is the shop's interior "salvaged from a dump"?
3) Tribeca: For those who are not tired of food-themed sneaker stores, there is Solefood NYC, a restaurant-themed Tribeca newcomer. Part of the fiancing comes from the windfall from Barry Bonds' record-breaking 756th home run ball, which he caught.
4) Everywhere: The "Pervert's Guide to Etsy" includes a "Latex Cage Dress" and a unique "Road Kill Squirrel Neoprene Mask." Perfect.
