Sample Size Rules at Tocca Sample Sale

I made it to the Tocca Friends & Family sale yesterday.  There was no list so anyone who knew about the preview sale could have gone into the label's showroom in Chelsea (it's on the same floor as the Herion showroom).  Today, the sale opens to the public.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inbuMpP3z5o While a mob had formed inside the Barneys Warehouse Sale over the weekend, a different kind of crowd was checking out the wares at the Ralph Lauren Home sale a few blocks away in Chelsea.  I waited in line next to three older women in fur coats on Saturday.  It didn't appear that they were looking for anything in particul[...]
