In Manhattan’s NoMad district, the Montblanc sample sale at 260 Fifth Avenue is attracting lots of takers. One of them is our contributor, Fashionable Femme Jen who has our report:
“Dwindling stock and lots of shoppers cycle in and out of the Mont Blanc sample sale Wednesday afternoon. While signature fountain, rollerball and ballpoint pens ranged in price from $225 to $2500+, it seems to be a bargain, compared to the $700 to $5000+ original retail pricing.

Of note are an assortment of large notebooks for $40 each, a Montblanc Sartorial 1-Pen Foldable pouch for $48 (orig. $130) and a Meisterstuck soft grain zip wallet in beige for $260, down from $650.
