Prairie Collective Renovation Sale
When it comes to shopping for a heart-warming gift, there’s nothing better than stopping by a local shop filled with an assortment of unique knicks and knacks. Add slashed price tags to the mix and you’ve landed in gift-giving heaven, which is precisely what’s going down at Prairie Collective's renovation sale. Think ultra-soft throws and pillows, pretty floral vases, and even an out-there porcelain skull adorned with a golden tooth that’s destined to be a great conversation piece. The best part? Discounts go all the way up to 75% off, thanks to the PC's need to make way for brand-spankin’-new merch. Um, can shops do spring cleaning more than once a season? The sale ends Sunday, so head over to the Lower Haight and set sale.

Where: Prairie Collective, 262 Divisadero Street (between Haight and Page streets); 415-701-8701.
Melissa Joy Manning Sample Sale
We'll admit it: When shopping for others, we can’t help but channel our inner super-savvy stylist. And nothing gives us that feeling more than perusing the jewel stunners at Berkeley’s Melissa Joy Manning boutique, with Mother’s Day in mind. And although we don’t have celebrity clients — or access to their bank accounts, we can still indulge in Manning’s designs for our stellar moms at this Saturday’s sample sale. There, we’ll be eyeing a variety of pretty bips and bops that are going out the door at 60% off! And if you want to treat yourself, too, don't worry — we won’t judge.
When: Saturday, May 12, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
When: Melissa Joy Manning, 1827 5th Street, Suite B (at Hearst Avenue); 415-647-8440.
