The Deal: Weekend sidewalk sale on L.A.'s 3rd Street

August 6, 2011 | 10:57 am


The West 3rd Street Summer Sidewalk Sale is this weekend, so some stores on one of L.A.'s better shopping districts for housewares, crafts and more will be moving inventory to the curb to make room for fall goods.

Distant Although the sale is indeed an al fresco event, many stores are offering discounts inside too:

Vintageweave Interiors, which specializes in French farmhouse-style decor, will be discounting Dash & Albert rugs by 15% and custom lampshades by 40%.

At Distant boutique, ikat and hand-painted pillows, shown at right, as well as rugs and antique textiles are 20% off. Hand-loomed bedding is 40% off.

Freehand Gallery is celebrating its 31st anniversary by reducing everything in the store by 20% through the month. Discounted items include hand-crafted art, ceramics and glass.

Colorful plastic woven beach totes from Thailand, regularly $30 to $40, will be $20 to $25 at Plastica.

The 3rd Street sale runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday between Fairfax Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard. Valet parking, at stands marked by orange umbrellas, is $3.50.
