Valentine's Day Sales for the Proud Single
Oscar Wilde surely put a few cupids out of work on Valentine's Day when he said, "To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance." And that has been the motto of happy singles everywhere.
Why sulk from the missing Valentines in your mailbox or the lack of presents from a desired companion? Forget the other and show yourself some lovin' instead. And what better way to rekindle your flickering self-love than to romance the sales this Hallmark-defined day of love has to offer?
- Today, Los Angelenos will be treated to a parade of discounted designer home accessories on West 3rd Street , with boutiques such as Trina Turk, New Stone Age and Plastica slashing prices of their decorative goods in celebration of love and good taste. And who doesn't love shopping in the name of the Greater Good? Take home a vibrant decorative pillow from Trina Turk at 50 percent off or chic rolling glass vases from New Stone Age marked down from $20 to $12 each.
- Those with a sense of humor and a knack for revenge, should check out the Urban Outfitters Stock Up Sale. We love these hidden meaning plates,which spell out "Douchebag." On sale for $20 for a set of four, they are perfect for a surprise V-Day shipment to your most-despised ex.
- Thanks to UrbanDaddy.com for alerting New Yorkers of a stellar way to liberate themselves from failed relationships: donate unwanted memorabilia to Partners & Spade. On Valentine's Day, you'll be able to sort through people's dirty laundry in more ways than one, piecing their relationship don'ts one dusty trinket at a time. Who knows, maybe one's trash will become your future centerpiece. As the writers at UrbanDaddy insightfully put it, "Call it a closure sale."
All proceeds from the sale go to charity.
