This week’s big sale: end-of-season clearance at Junior League Bargain Box in Poughkeepsie

Look out, trend-setters — the past is making a comeback! More than ever, today’s style is not about nabbing what’s hot on the runway, but what you can make with the stuff that’s already in your closet (or someone else’s). Which is why consignment shops and discount stores — like Poughkeepsie’s Junior League Bargain Box — are the inspiration for a lot of 2010’s best looks. This week, Valley recessionistas take a peek inside the Bargain Box, which celebrates its end-of-season clearance (starting March 9); items throughout the shop can be had for less than a buck.

Manager Joan Diamond says, “It’s another way to think ‘green,’ recycle, and save our landfills from textile waste — and money — during these unstable economic times.” You can count us in!

Clearance schedule: Mar. 9, all clothing $1 each; Mar. 11 & 12, all clothing $0.50 each; Mar. 13, all clothing $0.25 each; Mar. 13, all clothing free after 3 p.m.
