260 Sample Sale is hosting a sample sale at its NoMad location gathering S’well, Nest fragrances and, for the first time, Moleskine. Most items are 60% off retail.
We stopped in first thing this morning to find a line already wrapped around the block before the doors opened at 9am.
Inside, staffers were being briefed on sale pricing and procedures. We were mostly interested in the Moleskine journal selection so that’s what we focused on. If you use notebooks or journals, you’ll find lots on offer here. The Moleskine products can be found in a corner on tables organized by color and style. There are the Classic styles, Ruled journals and a lot of Plain journals in all sorts of sizes.
Also available are collaboration notebooks such as the superheroes (Batman and Superman). We also spotted a few Keith Karing notebooks and a few collaboration notebooks with Jason Wu. There weren’t a lot of these so expect them to go quickly.
Pricing for notebooks ranges from $2-$10. The best deals are the notebooks in the back that aren’t wrapped in plastic.
There are also pens and pencils ($5) and other accessories, including bags.
S’well bottles are on shelves separating the room, ranging in 9oz ($10), 17oz ($15) and 25oz ($20). Colors and prints were fairly varied.
The Nest Fragrance selection are in the middle of the space. There’s body creams/lotions, perfumes and, of course, candles. Check out the gallery for photos of what’s available and the pricelist.
I’m told that additional shipments will happen throughout the sale which ends this Saturday, May 5th. But no details on what they’ll replenish.
