Bag It Up

* Obviously this photo has been altered, I don't own rights to the title, but I am a shopaholic ;)

If there is one good thing about living in New York, its the daily sample sales. Excellent deals can be found everywhere, if you know where to look.

For those of you that don't know what a sample sale is, basically its an event held by a brand that allows consumers to get their hands on excess stock at a fraction of the designer price tag. A lot of the time, these sales are a secret, and you have to know where to look for them.

Yesterday, a friend of mine (hi Cindy!) dragged me kicking and screaming (kinda, sorta) to a Kooba sample sale after work. As I walked into that hot suite full of people, my eyes just lit up. Bags of all shapes, sizes, and colors eagerly sat in their boxes veritably ripe for the buying.

Allow me to introduce the one that hopped into my arms and screamed take me home!
and another view in a different color:

A nice girl doesn't buy and tell, but it was a real steal!

So tell me, have any of you ever done sample sales?

Sample sales are soooo much fun! Sometimes it's hit or miss, but more often than not I'll walk out with something haha.

In NY definitely,I love a sample sale. However, I would not know where to find one in LA. So sad. LOL

Dissolved Girl said...

I miss the sample sales sooooooooooooo much. *sigh*

The arguments, the deals, the goodies, the fun...

About 95% of my designer handbags come from sample sales. LOL

I cannot wait till we are done with this project so I can return to civilization. LOL

That by the way, that is a great bag.
