The Hermes Sample Sale is a Letdown

  Nothing of note caught my eye at the Hermes sample sale when I dropped into Soiffer Haskin today.  It's possible that I may have missed the boat and waited too long to check out the merchandise.  However, I don't think it would have made a difference if I had stood in line for at least two hours yesterday and went in then.  Today, it was a breeze to get in ([...]

Head to Housing Works for a Good Cause

Housing Works is hosting its fall preview through the end of September. Tuesday night, I made it into the Tribeca location where the preview started at 5pm. When I walked in, I was immediately greeted by a live band performing funky tunes. The music gave the place a lively atmosphere. The band was a nice touch. The merchandise is very organized with the wom[...]

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[...]

Score some incredible buys?  Then, you should head to[...]

Calypso Sample Sale:  Colorful Summer Wear at Great Price Points

Calypso St. Barth's sample sale comes just in time for the summer heat.  I arrived to yesterday's friends and family day just before closing.  It wasn't mobbed but it was still very busy.  There were women walking down the aisles carrying armfuls of clothing and trying to make it to the dressing room before they closed for the day.  There was a short line at t[...]

DwellStudio Sample Sale

DwellStudio Sample Sale

DwellStudio, the modern hip home furnishing NYC label, is hosting a sample sale this week in Soho.  I stopped in Sunday afternoon looking for sheets.  In past sales, I've come across great bedding in a wide selection of the label's fun whimsical designs.  This time, I was disappointed.  There wasn't much to choose from - just several styles of sheets ($140) and du[...]
