New York magazine will host its first annual Best Bets shopping event on Tuesday, October 3, 2006 at the Altman Building. The event will carry only products featured in the popular Best Bets section of the magazine, bringing together a unique mix of merchandise at a variety of price points. New York magazine editors carefully selected the best designers in fashions, shoes, handbags, beauty and home accessories for the event, with most selling at 20 – 65% off retail. The event also features an on-site café from City Bakery, featuring Maury Rubin’s signature hot chocolate and pretzel croissants.
A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit the Fund for Public Schools to improve public education in New York City.
