salesslide
Nothing beats the look of delight when someone opens that just-right gift you picked out for them. But getting a major deal on something you want for yourself is pretty delightful, too. Now that the majority of shopping for others is out of the way, you can focus on the new task at hand: prowling the post-holiday clearances for steals that will keep you stocked until spring. Some of our favorite local shops and boutiques are offering serious markdowns right now, and whether you're one of the lucky folks still enjoying vacation days or more of a surreptitious workday online shopper, there are plenty of discounts to grab. Here are our top picks:
