From a MUG subscriber:
"There's a store on 1st Avenue between 13th and 14th that is a Mecca for discount designer goodies. It's called Gabay's, 212.254.3180, and it's sort of a mini-Century 21 — not pretty and it takes a big of digging, but there are some serious gems. I've gotten Berdorf Goodman cashmere sweaters for $80 bucks, a pair of Manolos for under $200, and a Marc Jacobs bag for $300ish. Pretty amazing. You've gotta have an eye, but any fashionista worth her shoe collection should know about this place."
