In the News: Closet Sale

This is an In the News/Seen & Heard mash-up, because I don’tr have enough items for either on its own.

••• The opening of Kutsher’s Tribeca has been pushed back to Nov. 21.

••• “Quirky-cool dressers like Refinery29 global editor Connie Wang and Tales of Endearment blogger Natalie Joos pop-up repeatedly on the street style blogs for their enviable wardrobes; this weekend, you can raid their overstuffed closets. Both are participating in a one-day, five-person trunk sale [today] that also includes Street Peeper photographer Phil Oh, Soho and Tribeca Grand creative director Tommy Saleh, and Vogue fashion assistant Preetma Singh.” So I guess it helps if you’re their size? —The Cut

••• Speaking of sales: The Steven Alan Sample Scrum is Nov. 17–20 at 87 Franklin. It’s open Thursday and Friday 8… 30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

  1. Thank you for posting this, Eric. I had hoped that this would not have been so overtly full of “ours” and “theirs,” but it is. Yuck.

  2. Thanks Eric – Looks like the flyer has absolutely none of the “ours” and “theirs” were were warned of, as much as certain frequent posters here, with their rapier wit, and hours of free time, foam at the prospect of such excitement.

  3. It’s EriK with a K. Ka-ka-ka-ka-K. For the love of Jujyfruits. It’ so simple a child, an OWS or Park 51 protester could remember it. Too much free time? Foaming at the mouth? OOoooo, that’s sooo hot…but really, you shouldn’t talk about parents like that….the rezoning of schools is a serious, serious issue that requires parent mobilization, flyer generation & posting. If parents don’t act like children than how will their children ever learn how to do it?

  4. Great comeback on the spelling mistake, Jim.
    Fact of the matter is you are dismissing perfectly valid concerns in the community about the safety of the commute to and educational quality of PS1.
    Didn’t see you this active when north Tribeca parents has safety concerns about crossing Canal street, how odd.

  5. Hee hee hee…I love my free time. It’s safer to stay on my couch then to venture out on those dangerous Tribeca streets. You could twist an ankle or blow-out a knee on those cobblestones. Catching up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now these women have real problems!! Love ’em!

  6. Okay Jim, if you are going to correct others, please note that “then” and “than” are not interchangeable.

  7. Thanks, Kerry F. You’re always looking out for me & the fabric of our tight-knitted community. I guess I can’t hide the fact I went to PS 1 any longer. Sweet jeezus – Is anyone else having problems with the TNT HD channel?

  8. Okay Kerry F., if you are going to correct others, please note that “further” and “farther” are not interchangeable.

  9. Actually, they are!

  10. Oh, my. Yes, Kerry F., they are – sure they are….mmm-hmmm. You betcha.
