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, 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[...]

Deals on Fine Italian Bedding at the Frette Sample Sale

Sunday, I ventured into the Frette sample sale in its showroom across from the Plaza Hotel on W.58th Street. I need to stock up on towels so I thought I'd check out what they had on offer.
