It’s hard to find a sale we don’t like, but even tougher to call one an all-time favorite. That being said, the semi-sporadic Ssense sales put a little pep in our step every single time. Right now, the discount section is full of designer finds, many of which are A+ additions for summer entertaining. The variety of products scratches lots of itches: grad gifts, special treats for yourself, the opportunity to upgrade your herb garden. The list goes on. We pulled together 10 things that caught our eye, just to get your shopping started.
