The Scoop Warehouse Sale, the first time held at 260 Fifth Avenue, got off to a busy start yesterday. While the event officially opens to the public today, shoppers who bought early access on Gilt were allowed in at yesterday’s preview.
At 6pm, there wasn’t a line but the space was already packed with bargain hunters. The place was filled with plenty of merchandise (overstock). So much merchandise that sale organizers weren’t able to section off an area for the communal changing room. That’s right, there’s nowhere to try things on. But that didn’t stop shoppers from stripping down to see if the garments fit.
The doors open at 9am this morning for the last day of the Jimmy Choo sample sale at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Take a look at the line above just a few minutes after opening. The rain didn’t stop these die-hard Choo fans. Luckily, scaffolding protected most of them from the elements. We decided to skip the wait. If you got into this sale, let us know what you came out with.
Starting this week, those of you who love to collect shoes are in for a treat… Three of the highly-sought after footwear brands are having a sample sale.
First up is the Jimmy Choo sample sale, which starts tomorrow. If the sale is like previous ones, the average price for most shoes will be about $225. Be prepared to stand in line for this one… Also, unless you’re on the friends & family list, you might be facing major disappointment. At last spring’s sale, the selection was seriously depletedjust a couple of hours after they let the public inside. Where/When: Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 West 18th Street, 4th Floor, NY, NY; May 7-8; Tues (12pm-7pm), Wed (9am-7pm).

The Soho boutique, AvaMaria, has extended its relocation sale for another week. Plus, offering further markdowns. While selection at this point is limited, we’re told that there’s still some great finds such as footwear from Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik and Sergio Rossi.
