A Mishmash of Merchandise at the Prive Sample Sale

Though it be unbearably hot out, sample sale season is cooling off now that summer is here.  You won't find many sample sales this week.  One of the few being held is the Privé sample sale at Chelsea Market.  I checked out the goods last night and found a mishmash of merchandise for both men and women as well as a very limited selection of home goods. It l[...]

httpv:// I can spend hours at a flea market, looking for treasures.  The Brooklyn Flea is one of my favorite places to find the most interesting things at affordable prices.  The market draws about 200 vendors, selling a mix of new and used goods.  You'll find an assortment of vintage clothes, collectibles and furniture as wel[...]

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.
