B-

Very limited on the leather goods, but there will be a few and they tend to go quickly. My wife is insane about LP handbags, too!

Went and left in 10 minutes - 50% off retail is hardly impressive. Many of the sweaters looked shopworn. Fabrics were outrageously priced - I had no idea LP fabrics retailed for between $300 - $500 PER YARD. If I recall correctly I saw bolts of super 190's for over $1,100/yd. That is ridiculous. We are purchasing a few bolts of LP fabrics from a closeout fabric place in Italy for 1/10th those retail prices...
