BARGAINS

Holiday Starts an Explosion of Discounts

July 02, 1998|GERI COOK | SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

Bargain hunters welcome July for the markdowns on just about everything pertaining to summer. This holiday weekend marks the start of big savings.

A stop at Woodland Hills Camera this week can give you some deals on Canon products you won't find elsewhere, such as the new Elph by Canon, which retails for around $350, but here is $278. Or there's Elph's little brother, Elph 10, which the store sells for $49.95 rather than the $70 some places ask.

The Canon ES 180 video camera carries a tag at other stores of $450 to $500, but the price here is $395 and there's a one-year warranty on parts and labor. Woodland Hills Camera, 5348 Topanga Canyon Blvd. (818) 347-2270. (Closed Saturday and Sunday.)

A Red, White & Blue Sale is going on at Collectors Eye with 20% off vintage jewelry--in silver, red and blue. This includes marcasite, American Indian and old Mexican pieces and anything with red or blue stones. Collectors Eye, 21435 Sherman Way, Canoga Park. (818) 347-9343. (Closed Saturday, open Sunday.)

If you'd rather loll around the pool and stay out of the stores, get out your J. Peterman Co. catalog. Men's Gatsby shirts that are usually $83 are $39, and the classic men's vintage pullover at $39 is $44 cheaper than the regular price.

Women's silk crepe de chine blouses are usually $98 but the summer sale has them reduced to $49. If you want to see the items, go to the Peterman warehouse outlet in the Camarillo Premium Outlet Mall, where reductions of catalog overruns start at 20% off on first-quality merchandise and 30% off on irregulars. To get the catalog, call (800) 231-7341. The outlet is at 950 Camarillo Center Drive; (805) 445-9336. (Open Saturday and Sunday.)

If your lolling furniture has seen better days, Patio Factory has some good deals, particularly the table and four chairs set that usually sells for around $800 but is only $399. Or if it's only chair cushions you need, those selling for $29.95 are a better quality than some selling for $40 elsewhere. Patio Factory, 11274 Ventura Blvd., Studio City; (818) 508-8355. (Open Saturday and Sunday.)
