Modo Eyewear, founded in Soho and designs, manufactures and distributes its products and other designer brands, is hosting a sample sale at it’s showroom through this Thursday, June 11th. Mushkie stopped in today and tells us that the deals were well worth it.
“I’ve been disappointed with pricing at sample sales lately but at $20 a pair this Modo sample sale is the real deal! And, I mean everything was $20! When I attended the sale in the late afternoon, it was relatively quiet. At some point there were more staff members than customers.
The merchandise was neatly displayed on tables. I’d say that a majority of the eyewear is for prescription but there were a few sunglasses to be had. Eyewear brands available consists of Eco (made of recycled content or bio-based materials), Modo, Jason Wu and Derek Lam.
Staffers are very friendly and were helpful in giving advise to patrons on what shapes/frames suit their face.
There will be restocking Wednesday morning but that’s it. Important note: They only accept CASH… and at $20 that shouldn’t be hard to shell out!” – Mushkie
