You don't have to wait for a big sale event to bag good deals daily at Takashimaya. For one there is always the event hall with drastically marked down items or special seasonally available goods on sale. Or like today when I was window shopping in Takashimaya.
Yankee candles have an offer of 3 sampler votives for $9.90. "Fresh cut Roses" and "Wedding Day" 22oz housewarmers marked down from $49.90 to $39.90. I have always wanted one of those lampshade candles and am looking forward to burning mine at the dinner table so we can smell fresh cut flowers while dining.
The food department always have food items especially tea on clearance. These items usually have 6-9 months to expiry hence the markdowns that I don't mind as it will be consumed within a month at home. For example, a pack of 50 teabags from Taylors of Harrogate costs $4.95 after 50% discount. Compare it to a pack of 50 teabags from Lipton that costs $3.70. If you have tried this brand before then you know the quality is much better. The food department also offers occasional small discounts on regular items like TWG rose tea priced at $32 today as compared to $36 normally.
Selected Wedgwood tableware on sale, 40% to 50% off on India, Renaissance Gold and Wild Strawberry patterns.
