      Thanks for the sweet compliment. There are a lot of multi-city commercial sites covering different cities. My site is a solo effort, labor of love to San Francisco. There are probably similar sites in Texas but I am not aware of them. As always, Google is your friend. I bet a quick search will turn up something you like. Also check out Blog Local: http://bloglocal.net/ you might find a site there you like.

    Love your site….but

    Please, please make the dates of the events more prominent….

    On subject line of the email – so I don’t need to click through if I’m already booked up,
    At the top of the first descriptive page, so I don’t need to hunt for key info.

    Maybe it’s a problem with my old-fashioned email service (AOL), but I always need to search around for the dates.

    Hi Shari! I love in the East Bay (Alamo) and LOVE your site as I also love to find good bargains so that I can justify my Champagne tastes – LOL! I will be teaching a “From Coupons to Groupons” two hour workshop in Walnut Creek (thru Walnut Creek Art & Rec. – in the Personal Enrichment section) and would love to mention your site to assist other bargain hunters. Is that okay with you? Keep on doing a great job – it is much appreciated!

        Hi Shari! I just saw your reply today… I would love to write a guest post and share information about saving money online and in the SF Bay Area. I appreciate your response. Do you have a direct email address? Mine is dmcarmel@yahoo.com.

    Hi Shari, I was a big fan of the Holiday Sample Sale that was normally held at the SF Concourse beginning the day following Thanksgiving….it appears that the Concourse is closed now….are you familiar with this sale, and do you know if there is an alternate venue? Would appreciate any info you can provide. Thanks!

      Hi Darcy. I am familiar with the Holiday Sample Sale – it was a monster sale! It was not held last year and based on my research it looks like they are not holding it this year either. If they do end up holding it (doubtful) I will post it.
      Thanks for checking out Deal Tracker SF!

    Dear Shari, You are magnificent! I am an attorney too, and also sell vintage treasures via theperfectvintage.com. I am doing my very first, grand opening pop-up for THE PERFECT VINTAGE this Saturday! Could you please spread the word?

    10 AM to 4 PM at the Oakland Cottage Industry Sale at the Park Blvd. Presbyterian Church, 4101 Park Boulevard, Oakland 94602.

    Is there an email address where I could send you a flyer announcing the Grand Opening Pop-Up decadent sale of vintage housewares at THE PERFECT VINTAGE?????? Let me know what you need!
