powerhouse on 8th

Prepare to save big, ye who enter here.

Do you need to do some holiday shopping for nerds who love to read books. Ugh, the worst, right? Who can read in this Golden Age of Television we’re living in? Well, if you know some people who want books, you should do a little early holiday shopping next week at powerHouse on 8th (1111 8th Avenue, Park Slope), because they’re celebrating their one-year anniversary by offering 20% off all the books and merchandise in the store.

Do you dream at night of owning a state-of-the-art slow cooker? Forever kicking yourself that you scoffed when your mom tried to pawn off her copy of Joy of Cooking to you? Well your culinary crusade could become a reality this week with The Brooklyn Kitchen’s 8th birthday sale! (more…)

permanent records

Someone probably already got the Zappa though. :( via Facebook

Permanent Records, Greenpoint-based purveyors of vinyl goods, has lost its lease, and Thursday will be their final day of regular business at 181 Franklin Street before they head down to South Slope. While it’s always sad when a record store is forced to leave their home, Permanent will live on, and you can stand to benefit from this development with their massive moving sale, going on now through the end of business Thursday. We placed a call to see just how massive, and they’ve definitely delivered.

Welp, it’s just about fall, so that means it’s time to put your bike in storage until spring, right? Wrong! In the fall, you can ride your bike without turning into a sweaty mess, which means you can still avoid paying for a MetroCard unless absolutely necesarry, and still get places earlier than your friends. You can do all of that even cheaper than usual too, because Bicycle Roots (609 Nostrand Avenue, Crown Heights) is having themselves a big sale, chopping prices on things like bikes, bags, jackets and of course, helmets. It is, after all, the fall. (more…)

So many bikes, so little money. At least some of them will be cheaper than usual. via Facebook

Just because the temperatures will start dropping soon and you’ll have to start wearing sweatshirts and (eep) jackets, doesn’t mean you should stop riding your bike. That’s just what the Car Lobby wants. And hell, fall is a perfect time to buy bikes or bike accessories, or at least it seems that way, because Ride Brooklyn is having a giant sale for Labor Day weekend starting Thursday. (more…)

This one seems like it could be good for you.

If you’ve just moved into a new apartment, congratulations! We hope it doesn’t have bed bugs. Also, you might want to do a little bit of decorating. Finally get rid of your Reservoir Dogs poster and that Ikea art you made a huge mistake buying, and check out Gilt’s Banksy sale for a quick way to spruce up your new pad. (more…)

You can pay what you like to look like this. Well, you’d still need to be in shape to look like THIS. via OnlyAtoms

We all know that all it takes is a cute new running tank and shorts to actually get you to exercise (what Netflix subscription?) but you don’t even have to leave your bed to shop during OnlyAtoms‘ pay-what-you-want sale.

Race to your computer, because according to DNA Info, the athletic gear outfitter is celebrating its launch by offering pay-what-you-want running gear for a limited time. (more…)

babeland sale

We usually take our life advice from a talking vulva, and so should you! via Facebook

FACT: Financial responsibility is sexy, and so is a room full of sex toys. Babeland (462 Bergen Street, Park Slope) can appreciate both of these things equally, which is why they’re combining the two this week for their Customer Appreciation Sale starting on Thursday. Finally, a way to prove both your seriousness in spicing things up in the bedroom while still being able to pay the rent! (more…)

Carrie on my wayward son.

Carrie on my wayward son.

Film Biz Recycling, as you might know, takes used clothes from film and TV shows that would normally go in the garbage and resells them to you for cheap. On Friday, the Gowanus shop is having a big sale on 80s clothes, after getting an “enormous wardrobe and material selection from a recently canceled show that takes place in the 80s.” The store isn’t allowed to say where it gets the stuff from, but we’re just gonna use our super powers of journalistic deduction and say that it’s from The Carrie Diaries, which just bit the dust. Hey, Carrie Jr.’s loss is your gain! The night is going to be a whole 80s party with karaoke, videos and free fuzzy navels too. (more…)
