I stopped into the Halston sample sale on Spring Street Tuesday morning and found some beautiful pieces. There were racks of actual production samples and one-of-a-kinds.

You’ll find deals on shoes, handbags and two racks of clothing. Sample shoes from the fall collection are on sale for $75, including cute suede ballet flats embellished with a stylish Halston gold plate on the toe. Lots of strappy high-heeled sandals were also on offer.  Plus, suede boots for $150 and ankle boots at $100. Spring shoes are priced at $185.  One major negative: most shoes are size 37.  A few 36, 38, 39 and 40. A box containing buttery leather handbags (taupe and gray) were going for just $150.  The spring handbags were gorgeous and not badly priced $250 to $395.

As for the clothing, I found two racks of samples where tops were priced at $150, shirts $75, pants $150 and dresses $295.  A rack of lovely evening dresses were going for $595.  The showroom had lots of other merchandise on sale (feminine flowy tops and dresses) but the prices for those items were a little steep. A red silk chiffon kimono-sleeved top for $395 caught my eye, as well as a turquoise silk chiffon top for $495.

Where/When:  96 Spring St., b/t Broadway & Mercer St., 2nd flr. July 7-9, Tues – Thurs 9am-7pm.
