The Brooklyn boutique, Swords-Smith, which carries emerging and established designers is hosting a sample sale this weekend. Today (Monday, February 17th) is the last day.
Here shoppers will find dozens of designers who offer creative, modern apparel, accessories, footwear for both men and women. Some of the brands we’ve covered on this site such as M. Patmos who had several racks of knits. Some of those pieces looked like ones that didn’t sell at the designer’s sample sale in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn last month.
When we stopped in over the weekend, we found a lot of merchandise. Plenty for women – the clothing can be found towards the back handing on racks. Shoes are on one side of the space. Men’s goods are separated on one side.
Discounts were around 60-70 percent off retail. Not great. But today, they may be offering further reductions.
I did spot a pair of ankle boots by Korean designer, Reike Nen, ($200) that caught my eye but when The Mister said they looked a bit like Star Trek, I put them down.
An MM6 black patent leather wallet ($100) also stood out but I decided to pass.
The clothing selection, while plentiful, was random depending on what you’re looking for and what you’re willing to spend. Nothing stood us for us!
If you’re in the ‘hood, this sale might be worth checking out since it’s the last day which usually brings further markdowns.
Where/When: 98 S 4th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249. Thru Feb 17th (Noon-7pm).
