A 19th century Cambodian footed offering tray from Jack Lenor Larsen's personal collection.  

Treasure Hunt!
Internationally renowned textile designer Jack Lenor Larsen is throwing a rummage sale of epic proportions this weekend. The travel maven will open up his personal collection of worldly items, including tribal rugs, indigenous textiles, and other exotic home stuff. Proceeds for the goods, priced from $250 to $17,000, will go to LongHouse, Larson’s nonprofit gallery, garden, and learning space in East Hampton. For $100, eager browsers can take a sneak peek at options at an exclusive preview event Thursday (The Wild Horses of Sable Island Gallery, 13 Crosby St., nr. Grand St.; 212-219-9622; 3/10-3/12).

Bittersweet Symphony
After a sixteen-year run, Flatiron housewares store Apartment 48 closes its doors for good at the end of the month. The silver lining is the accompanying closeout sale: Candles, kitchenware, bedding, and vintage furniture are going for 70 percent off their original prices (12 W. 17th St., nr. Fifth Ave.; 212-807-1391; through 3/31).

The Visual Suspects
Digital gallery Exhibition A, which sells prints by big-name artists at surmountable prices, ventures into the offline realm with a pop-up shop in the Ace Hotel. Limited editions of prints by the likes of Terence Koh, Nate Lowman, and Peter Sutherland will be running from $100 to $500, along with special-edition wallpaper by Olympia Scarry (20 W. 29th St., nr. Broadway; 646-476-3116; 3/15-4/7).
