Deals worth the wait: Garnet Hill annual sale

Some deals only come around once or twice a year, but offer savings that justify the wait. This post is part of our series on such 'don't miss' sales.

Almost all stores hold after-Christmas sales. In fact, I've long thought that a savvy family that time-shifted Christmas to Jan. 25th could pocket hundreds if not thousands of dollars in gift costs. For me, I pick among the January sales looking for appealing items that I would otherwise be unable to afford.
