O.K., here we go again. If you didn't maxed out your plastic with the Basso and the Asprey/Baccarat sales, then you’ll probably do it now with the Pratesi sale…but don’t have a financially ruinous day with this one, as we have another GREAT sale coming up next week!
Starting on Sunday and going through Tuesday (Mar. 11-13), Soiffer Haskin is having a Pratesi blowout. If you don’t know Pratesi, your body should: They’re the makers of truly fine, ultra-luxurious linens and accoutrements, imported from Italy. There’s nothing like a suite of linens from this company -- except maybe the bathrobes, or the towels, or the baby goods, or the PJ’s, or the blankets, or the table accessories... They’re normally so expensive, the prices would give you nightmares, but at this sale, you’ll think lullaby instead. Same drill as always: Address is 317 W. 33rd St., just west of Eighth Ave.; plastic only, no checks, no cash; no strollers, no kids under 12. Hours: 9am-6:30pm.
