Oh, Big Deal

Even Santa’s tightening his belt this year. We thought we’d help out the old guy with exclusive deals from some of our favorite shops and restaurants through December 14 (just show a copy of this e-mail).

Tons of Old City boutiques are offering discounts, so don’t be shy. A few of the best: Sugarcube (25 percent off sweaters and outerwear), Art in the Age (20 percent off select men’s and women’s apparel and a free ecotote with $100 purchase), J. Karma (15 percent off regularly priced merch and a free gift with a handbag purchase). Reward gives back with 20 percent off coats and sweaters, 15 percent off shoes and bags, and an added 20 percent off markdowns; Lost + Found (133 North Third Street; 215-928-1311) takes 20 percent off outerwear and footwear. Third Street Habit marked down the entire store and gives you an additional 10 percent off (so sweet).

Then head north: Arcadia (25 percent off new merch) and Bambi Gallery (20 percent off everything). West: The girls at Grasshopper offer 40 percent off new holiday duds, Matthew Izzo and Sailor Jerry offer 30 percent off select merchandise, Echo Chic outfits you at 25 percent off, and Kiehl’s (1737 Walnut Street; 215-636-9936) offers 20 percent off in-store only. And outside the cubicle: Call to get $50 off Ladies Who Launch incubator courses through December.

Bistro 7 has free dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth. When you buy two entrees at Lolita, split a gratis dessert. Do the same at Bindi and get a free Indian-inspired cocktail mixer. The Melting Pot offers free dessert with a full dinner, Bredenbeck’s Bakery takes 20 percent off purchases, Pub & Kitchen offers 20 percent off food, and Georges’ comps a half-priced entree and two glasses of champagne at lunch when you buy an entree of equal or greater value.

And that makes the fat man jolly.
