It seems January is the sale month for housewares and furniture. Tok & Stok are having big sales, as are numerous stores around the city. I picked up a Casa Claudia magazine today which had a four-page list of Rio stores on sale. Some of the highlights:
Fernando Jaeger (R. Corcovado 252 (2274-6026) has sofas and chairs on sale for what appear to be reasonable prices.
Several lojas in Casa Shopping are having impressive sales (50% off at some): Stilo Ásia, Trançarte, Líder Interiores and Velha Bahia, for starters.
Etna, in Barra, is having up to 70% off sales, and Regatta, in Rio Design Leblon, has up to 80% off on fabrics. I'm thinking of stocking up on a few meters to make pillows. That is, if I can find someone with a sewing machine who is willing to share not only the machine but a few pointers. My 4-H sewing days are LONG past...
