VAIL ” Brand new and “gently” used items from some of the Vail Valley’s top flight homes will be available for bargain prices next Saturday and Sunday as the third annual Repeat Performance Designer Tag Sale takes over the stage of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater.

The sale frenzy will get underway Friday evening with a Preview Party and Sale from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission is $30 and participants will enjoy wine or beer in addition to getting the first pick on all of the incredible bargains.

“We have some truly great items this year,” said Ceil Folz, president of the Vail Valley Foundation. “It will be well worth the $30 to have the chance to shop early, not to mention being able to shop with a glass of wine in hand.”

Doors to the Ford Amphitheater will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday for the main Repeat Performance Sale. Admission will be $5 for shoppers from opening until noon. The sale will reopen again from 1 to 3 p.m., with free admission and all remaining items at half price.

Among the items up for grabs at this year’s Repeat Performance Sale are a chenille sofa, an entertainment center, beds, outdoor furniture, oriental rugs and a large selection of household decorative items from homes in Vail and Beaver Creek.

Clothing items include designer offerings from Armani, Escada, Prada and Kate Spade, as well as brand new purses and shoes, courtesy of Well Heeled in Edwards, in addition to fur coats and an increased amount of men’s clothing over previous years.

Any unsold items will be donated to the Thrifty Store and Habitat For Humanity and all proceeds from the Repeat Performance Designer Tag Sale will benefit the Vail International Dance Festival’s community outreach educational programs, including the free Dance Dialogue lecture series, the Village Vignettes free performances and the complimentary family matinee performance.

The Repeat Performance Designer Tag Sale and the Vail International Dance Festival are projects of the Vail Valley Foundation. For additional information on Repeat Performance, contact the Vail Valley Foundation at 949-1999.
