Attention Petit Bateau lovers! Get your French nautical stripes on for the next two weeks at the Petit Bateau sample sale taking place at 219 Seventh Avenue in Park Slope, the former home of long-defunct Living on Seventh. Oui, the Brooklyn Gal already revealed that we are no fans of the sample sale – too much choice, too much pressure, too many damned people! – but this one’s right in our hood and a tad bit calmer, at least when we bopped by on Saturday.
While we heart the sailor striped shirts and snappy cardigans, they’re just the jumping off point for this cotton-centric brand. If you’re willing to rummage through packed racks and topsy-turvy boxes and put up with a bare-bones warehouse feel, you may walk out with cadeaus for all of the little ones on your holiday list, and those petite amis, too.
