A Dramatic Sale


These days, it's hard to be unique on a budget. Seemingly different retro-style clothing (think "I'm a Pepper" and "Ithaca is Gorges" T-shirts) and tiki bar stools are actually mass-produced and line the shelves of trendy stores like Urban Outfitters. So what is an aspiring hipster to do? You can succumb to the breathtakingly inexpensive offerings from Ikea if you don't mind the cookie-cutter chic, or there is always the option of customized clothing and furniture if you are willing to shell out some serious cash.

Thankfully, Arena Stage has come to the rescue with this Saturday's Prop and Costume Sale. Hundreds of props and outfits from the company's recent productions, including "South Pacific," "Señor Discretion Himself" and "Guys and Dolls," can be yours and yours alone. The Arena Stage crew crafted most of the items specifically for their productions, so you can rest assured that your new chair or flamenco skirt won't turn up on the glossy cover of any teenybopper catalogue. Be sure to bring your cash or checks -- they don't take credit cards. You can leave the U-haul behind, though. Arena Stage will arrange delivery for your larger purchases. Since there is no pre-sale, early birds can nab some great things. I'll be there, in my "Everyone Loves an Irish Girl" shirt, when the doors open at 10 a.m.
