I was gonna post about this sooner but I fell asleep from 8pm - 11pm. Saddness, now my whole Friday night is gone. Anywho, The North Face is having a sample sale open to the public so prices will be around 70% - 90% off. I know a few people have asked me in the past to mention if there are any public sample sales. It starts tomorrow at 9am (I'll be there at 8:30am) and I think it goes until at least Wednesday. Its at the Berkeley outlet: 1238 5th Street - Berkeley, CA 94710
If you need anything like tents, sleeping bags, equipment or shoes there are especially good deals on these things.
