Seattleites, scrap your weekend plans. The city's go-to source for stylish modern design is having a blowout sale, this Friday and continuing through June 12. We usually save such events for the calendar, but Velocity Art & Design's First Annual Memorial Day Warehouse Sale sounds particularly juicy and we wanted to give you the scoop.
According to Velocity owner John Tusher, "We will be racking out the store and bringing down the contents of our warehouse to do a pre-summer cleaning." Expect a sampling of pretty much everything from Velocity's impressive inventory -- furniture, accessories, lighting, floor models, and some vintage pieces -- all at a starting point of 40% off. If you've been keeping your eye on some of its fab wares -- and really, who hasn't? -- now is your chance. Unfortunately for all you out-of-towners, this event is in-store only, not online.
I don't know about you, but I'll be waiting outside (at 251 Yale Ave. N.), chanting "Open, open, open."
