Six reasons to do something this weekend
Weekend Picks - April 4, 2013
Buy and Large
What: Homecoming's massive warehouse sale returns with 50 to 75 percent off brands like Jeffrey Campbell, UNIF, Finders Keepers, Motel Rocks, Mink Pink and more - some for as low as $20. This time around, look for merchandise to be grouped by size and extra staff on hand to help customers. Our advice: go as early as possible (last time, a line had already formed by 10 a.m.) and be prepared to try things on sans dressing room.
When: Sunday, noon-5 p.m.
Where: Fresh Cafe, 831 Queen St.
Details: Cash and credit cards accepted.
What: Score up to 75 percent off at Lily Lotus' warehouse sale. Sift through $10, $20, and $30 racks of samples, tanks, yoga pants and more (again, go early - there's always a crowd).
When: Saturday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
Where: 3160 Waialae Ave.
Details: Cash only.
What: Meet L*Space designer Monica Wise at a special pop-up shop this weekend, courtesy of Rebecca Beach Kahala.
