Dallas Divas: It's FIG Finale Time!

It's that time of year again: the Fashion Industry Gallery's Finale sale that happens twice a year in Dallas! It is taking place Friday, August 22nd (11 AM - 9 PM) and Saturday, August 23rd (11 AM - 5 PM) at the Fashion Industry Gallery located at 1807 Ross Ave. downtown Dallas.

What can you buy there? Check out my posts from August 2007 and February 2008. I am especially excited about this event since last August I made out so much better than in February. Here are the tips:
1) Bring cash. Some places take credit cards, but even those who do sometimes require a minimum purchase. There is an ATM on site in case you run out.
2) If you want more selection, go on the first day. If you want the best prices, go within the last few hours of the second day (it was on the second day last year when I bough 13 items for a total of under $300).
3) Wear clothes that you can easily try things on over. There are very few dressing rooms (and the ones that are there are not really dressing rooms).
4) Be prepared to pay at the door. This is not a free event. It will cost you $12 at the door per person. However, mention DailyCandy at the door and get two for the price of one!
UPDATE: They wouldn't honor the DailyCandy discount when I went (can you believe it???). They tried to say it was only for online tickets (wrong!). Below is what the DailyCandy deal stated. I was a little perturbed:
What: The city’s best boutiques hole up under one roof to offer up to 75 percent off.
Why: Mention DailyCandy Deal when buying your ticket and get one free.
When: Fri., 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sat., 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: 1807 Ross Ave. Tickets at 214-748-4344.

I look forward to hearing all of your stories! Happy shopping!

UPDATE #2: My friend reached out to the FIG Finale staff. They're going to refund our $12 and are now honoring the buy one get one offer.
