Sharper Image Clearance Sale: Up to 40% Off Lightsabers, StressErasers and BreathalyzersS

After declaring bankruptcy back in February, Sharper Image will put the shutters on its 86 remaining retail outlets. The stores are discounting items 20-40% in an effort to clear inventory—and pay back those pesky creditors. If you've ever wanted a vibrating leather massage chair but didn't want to be the last sucker paying MSRP, here's your chance for a deal. I'm sad to see the classic mall staple go away and I'm scrambling to figure out when and how I'll get my next lungful of negative-ion filtered air. Read the press release after the jump so we can weep together.
