When we stopped there en route to Charlottesville, I mentioned that we should stop and see if there was an outlet or factory store. My husband suggested that I look up directions and we stop on the way back.
Clearly, I made a point of looking it up as soon as we got to the hotel. I found THIS BLOG POST and decided it was a must-do. The last couple times I have been to the J.Crew outlets, I have been very disappointed, so this seemed like a better option. The clothes at the J.Crew factory store are returns and slightly irregular. I know that women are BIG returners (myself included) so I figured there would be quite a good selection.
I plugged in the address to my iPhone: 25 Millrace Drive, and arrived at an industrial park that included the star of the show…
The store was well organized by size, but there was rarely two of the same item. I had to really look through the racks to find stuff, but considering the price and selection, it was worth it.

4) Bright Yellow Vintage Cotton V-neck Tee
*I plan on wearing this over a tank top for running. Perfect lightweight material and a safety color!
5) Black Double-cloth metro coat with Thinsulate
* an off-season purchase, but it’s a classic and I will definitely get good use out of it.
Favorite place to score a bargain? I have purchased a couple things on ebay and I love Nordstroms Rack.
