Proenza Schouler Part II

Artsy Anna also hit up the Proenza Schouler sale this morning.  We just missed each other.  She concurs that merchandise was already thinning out.  Here's Anna's report: I went to extra effort to beat the rush at the Proenza Schouler sale this morning but it was no use.  I arrived about an hour after the sale started.  While I was still getting my bearings, ot[...]

Slim Pickings at Proenza Schouler

Yesterday's press preview almost wiped out the Proenza Schouler sale. And this morning what ever was left has probably been picked through by PS fans.  I literally had 15 minutes to look first thing this morning and it was madness - the morning rush was in full force.  By 9:30am, there was already a line at the cash register.  Everything was going fast. Here's w[...]

Halston & Halston Heritage Sample Sale

I did a quick sweep of the Halston & Halston Heritage sample sale this morning. I must say there a plenty of bargains, especially with items from the label's more affordable line - Halston Heritage.  Many more deals this time around than previous sales.   That's what I focused on. In the front room are handbags and shoes. HH heels are $75, flats (ballet &a[...]

Rummage Sale at Cynthia Rowley

I felt a bit overwhelmed at the Cynthia Rowley sample sale in the West Village.  I stopped in at the end of the day Friday.  The back room of the Bleecker Street boutique was packed full of merchandise from what looked like items from past seasons, one-of-a-kinds, shoes, handbags and random items such as dishes.  I started with the racks where I found deals on [...]

Hayden-Harnett Sample Sale

The elevator wasn't working when I arrived at the Hayden-Harnett and the Collective Showroom sample sale Tuesday evening.  I was told that the elevator stops operating after a certain hour at the end of the day.  I ended up having to walk up five flights to check out the goods. Not such a fun thing to do in this heat! The sale wasn't as well stocked as previous s[...]

Oak & Friends Sample Sale

The after work crowd flocked the Oak & Friends sample sale in Noho Friday night.  The sale is being held in the basement of the Oak store on Bond Street where they managed to fit tons of merchandise in such a small space. Last night, it was tight and crowded as I tried to look at the clothing hanging on racks or stacked on tables.  At one point, the place looked l[...]

A Mishmash of Merchandise at the Prive Sample Sale

Though it be unbearably hot out, sample sale season is cooling off now that summer is here.  You won't find many sample sales this week.  One of the few being held is the Privé sample sale at Chelsea Market.  I checked out the goods last night and found a mishmash of merchandise for both men and women as well as a very limited selection of home goods. It l[...]
