Bargain-hunting can be a demoralizing endeavor. But at this intimate women's discount shop, you'll be rewarded for your digging: Choice pieces from designer labels like Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier and Alberta Ferretti are up to 80 percent off and immaculately organized. Neatly hung racks and glass shelves are filled with essentials like Three Dots tees ($50--$90) and Woo dresses ($78--$128). Recently, we've seen incredible deals you probably won't find anywhere else, including a Faonnable blazer-style leather jacket slashed from $1,395 to $199 and a Catherine Malandrino ruffled-collar silk blouse marked down from $275 to $128. You'd think all the coveted labels would draw major crowds, but the only thing you'll be battling here is your self-control. 246 Mott St between E Houston and Prince Sts (212-343-2268, bit-piece.com). Mention TONY at checkout to receive 10 percent off all non-sale items through May 1.

This well-kept secret stocks previous-season designer goods at a fraction of their original prices, along with inexpensive items from emerging NYC designers. Imagine getting your hands on red-soled Louboutins starting at $380 or a Stella McCartney blouse at 70 percent off, and discovering a showstopping line that none of your gal pals have, such as Marie-Lise Lachapelle's gold-dipped orchid jewelry ($180--$480). Pumps by Jimmy Choo and Brian Atwood run $280 to $420, while clothing labels like Vanessa Bruno and Tsumori Chisato go for $80 to $375. 107 Crosby St between W Houston and Jersey Sts (212-966-0909, virketyne.com). Mention TONY at checkout to receive 10 percent off clothing and accessories through May 1.
