Ritual Archive Anniversary Sale

Hello lovelies,

I'm keeping it local again (to me, that is) with a sale report from the Ritual Archive 1 Year Anniversary Sale being held at the store at 167 Mott Street. Store hours are 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The sale begins today, September 17 and I suppose it will continue until they've depleted the merchandise. They may be restocking but it will depend on how quickly the stock on the floor is depleted, making room for new items. I kind of can't believe Ritual Archive has been open for a whole year and I also kind of can't believe that it's only been open for a year. But as proof, you only have to go back and look at my post last September when I covered the store opening.

Ritual Archive is the discounted outpost of Ritual Vintage. As it is a vintage shop, there's not much point in me going over the merchandise and sizing and pricing as it varies depending on the piece. I will say that nothing I saw was over $200 and most items are a little below $50 or $100. There is a lot more designer merchandise on the floor right now so a lot of the normal $20-$40 items are not on the racks though I did find a few of them mixed in. I think the most expensive items were furs and jackets and the like. You could definitely find something nice at this sale at a lower price point. However, again, as it is vintage, this is a sale you want to clear out some time for. You want to be able to hunt for those special pieces in your size. OK, enough chitchat. On to the clothes!

A lot of the designer pieces were boring basics so instead of trying to photograph every black skirt and pair of gray pants I made a note of the designers and prices.
