With some diligent detective work, Madison Avenue Spy has discovered the two best places to find merchandise that didn't sell at the Barneys Warehouse sale: the Filene's Basement in Union Square (great for clothes) and the Syms on Park Avenue (great for shoes). Recently at Filenes, "Vena Cava, Tocca, and Marc Jacobs dresses were also substantially discounted and range in price from $59.99 to $99.99," the blog reports. Sounds awfully tempting, if you have the patience to dig and to brave Union Square. [Madison Avenue Spy]
