Arethusa Farm Dairy, which is located in Bantam, CT, will be hosting a sample sale where the famous heels (and flats) will be priced starting at $150. According to our inside sources, the selection will include a full range of sizes and a variety of styles among summer and winter collections.
The famous dairy is owned by George Malkemus and Anthony Yurgaitis--the couple who own Manolo Blahnik USA. Unfortunately, the farm's famous high quality milk and cheese will not be available at the sale but those details are subject to change.
The sale will physically take place at the Bantam Fire House and the sales will benefit Arethusa Farm Scholarship Fund for University of Connecticut Agricultural Studies. Bantam is located in Litchfield, Connecticut, which is about 2.5 hours from Manhattan. That means this sale-ing will require a bit of a road trip.
We did a bit of research and suggest that you top off your Manolo hay-day with the Arethusa Farm's luxury ice cream, cheese and milk. If you're looking to make a weekend of it, the area hosts several bed & breakfasts.
We strongly suggest Winvian Farm, a five star, Relais & Chateaux resort that includes 18 individually-designed resort cottages, a luxury spa, a five-star farm-to-table restaurant and an extensive wine cellar. To book, contact Steele Luxury Travel and receive a complementary upgrade, complementary breakfast, a spa credit and lots of other special perks.
Here's to sample sale priced Manolos and a beautiful summer weekend!
