Pure Barre Sample Sale

Some of you have been asking about the Pure Barre sample sale taking place in Soho. One of our contributors, Mushkie, stopped in late Friday.

The Reiss sample sale opens to the public at 260 Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron today. A fellow shopper (thanks, D!) went to last night's preview and sends us photos (including the pricelists) as well as giving us her impression: "Sale prices were not nearly as good as they were a year ago.

Jil Sander Navy Sample Sale is Completely Picked Over

We were in the neighborhood so we thought we'd check out the Jil Sander Navy sample sale taking place on Greene Street in Soho. We were shocked to see how empty the space was. Sale organizers obviously hit on the right price-points to move the merchandise so quickly.

Hosiery are the Highlights at the Wolford Sample Sale

The first ever Wolford sample sale being hosted by 260 Sample Sale is taking place through this Sunday. Mushkie checked out the deals Tuesday evening and gives us her report: "Tights ($18/$45) are the main attraction at the first ever Wolford sample sale.

Clothingline Blowout Sale; rag & bone jeans are just $30

For just two days, the sample sale venue, Clothingline, in the Garment District is hosting a blowout sale of items presumably leftover from past sales. The place was hopping with shoppers on Tuesday evening. We haven't seen it this busy in quite a while. Obviously, these were bargain hunters hoping to find that a really good deal which started at $10. Before we [...]
