#GivingWeekends at Story

  • Critics choice

This Chelsea shop is one our favorite spots for finding amazing holiday gifts (it partnered with Target this season to offer an especially impressive selection), and it's worth stopping by the store on weekends this month. On Saturdays, Story is treating shoppers to treats from Snowday, the local food truck from nonprofit Drive Change. And on Sundays, Target's designers are in the shop customizing holiday ornaments for customers. For each ornament you personalize, they'll donate one to St. Jude's Target House. Remember, this is the season of giving.

Agreed. Terrible format. Why is it so hard to find NYC sample sales now that NY Mag stopped publishing theirs? Bummer!

You changed the format of the sample sales page. Now it's a mess. Keep it simple, dum dums. Only sample sales on the sample sale page, with dates, times and location, all on one page.
