Look what the high winds blew in during our very first Garage Sale last month on the 7th floor parking level at 1111 Lincoln. Boxes of 30% off Swims loafers and Paul Smith scarves were literally flying off the shelves! Mon dieu, we were sail-ing!

Yes, after two years in business, our stockroom runneth over. Shoppers snagged great buys from 20%-70% off — Ortigia candles to flacons of Bond No. 9 to Orlebar Brown swim shorts, and Miriam Salat and Kenneth Jay Lane jewels. Stop by to see what’s left. Certain items are featured in the sale gallery at the shop.

Behind the Scenes: Outtakes from the Edge

We had a lot of fun making the January blog. I shot and styled two guerilla shoots at 1111. That’s me, babalulu, with Esteban Cortazar in my infamous Levi “shooting shorts” from the ’90s. Apres, he was late for a lunch meeting and changed in the car on our way out of the parking lot. For the Magi shoot, I kidnapped Osmar from the shop, gave him a crash course in photography and made him my assistant. As you can see, Greg and Paolo proved to be quick studies as models for the day.
