Now that the weather is transitioning into cooler temperatures, knitwear is something that we all will be gravitating to these days. At the NY Charisma Sample Sale, you can find all types of Women’s knitwear like t-shirts, dresses, skirts, pullover sweaters, cardigans, pants etc. ranging from $5 to $100 on items that originally retail for $46 to $535. Granted, the selling area is very conservative in space, however, the merchandising of the product allots for the display of a variety of items to shop from price range to garment type. There are a combination of stock items and true samples which are all in great condition. To the right of the selling space, are all samples ($25 and under) and to the left are the current season stock items ($40 and up) which are perfect for consumers who like to buy now and wear now.
Here are a couple of sample styles that I know you would love at $25 & under.
It is not often that NY Charisma have a sample sale so be sure to check it out before it is over. I hope that you find some cool items to add to your wardrobe!
Are you in need of new kitchenware and houseware items? If so, make sure to stop at Alessi’s Sample sale on 130 Greene Street in the next couple of days! Over 70% of selected designs and floor samples that aren’t to be missed.
There are many full priced pieces mixed in the same area with the sale items. Make certain which sets are on sale by asking one of the many friendly sale associates. The store is very accommodating with their cliental, only wanting for their shoppers to be happy with their finds.
The store was beautifully organized with tall white shelves that truly showed off the best elements in each of the items. It was obvious that the displays were well thought out and carefully designed. I was profoundly taken back how well the visual merchandising was.
The modern take of the interior mixed with the abstract displays only enhanced the products and made me want to buy more.
These are prices you just cannot beat, especially for the quality! Everyone needs to visit before the sale ends.
Dinner Plate $19
Soup Plate $15
Mocha Cup $9
Wine Glass $9
You can still shop at the sale all through Labor Day Weekend. Details below.

I’m not sure if the summer season and the sample sale gods are friends or they’re on the love/hate battlefield, but I’m having a huge dilemma. That is? I don’t have enough weekends left to wear these color block pieces I’m obsessing over at the JADE Swim Sample sale, located at the Chelsea Market (15th street and 9th ave). Starting today, Wednesday August 30th (10:30AM—7:00PM) — Sunday September 3rd 2017 (10:30AM-5:00PM) I suggest you walk over there if possible while reading, its a promised good sale, guaranteed and the atmosphere is so fun! Chelsea Market is the ultimate playground to shop in!
Lets start with our shopper PQQ- price, quality and quantity. The price list, super straight forward. Separate pieces are $29 and $59 for a one piece. If we were to compare retail prices? Their one-side Apex swimsuit’s retail price dives into the deep side of the sea, at $198, but now? $59! All yours! The Micro one-piece retails for $220 and the Chain Reaction V Neck one-piece, $150. Now, $59 for all! Also, the separate pieces ( I suggest mix & match) range in retail price from $75-110, and now selling out at this sample sale for? $29 !!! Insanity. I could not be more happy writing this to all of our shoppers!
Ultimate steal, right? I cannot wait for you to have first dibs. Even though its preferred not to try on the swim, there are dressing rooms in the back and I suggest putting it over undergarments to make sure you’re getting your right size! There is plenty in stock for all sizes, the white suits are seemingly running low, however every other color is in attendance. Also, the quality is undeniably beautiful, I mean we all know JADE swimwear as one of the hottest fashion competitors in the industry rated highly by InStyle Magazine. Trust us, or trust that toned gut you’ve been working out all summer, this sale is amazing!
Sizes run from Extra Small, Small, Medium & Large but it did look like they’re made smaller than average. The color palette that you’ll see is beyond perfection. The ocean blue, the strawberry red, the sand tan. (yes I’m making these names up, but i promise you’ll envision this exact color from this fun description) Then you have your super cool, “This is me not trying, I’m an natural” collection giving you LIFE with our favorite core colors, matte black, bright white and a really moss olive that if you ever get stranded on an island, you’ll be so in-tune with the color of nature.
What I love most are the styles, the sharp cuts that make an edgy yet curvy look under the sun. I know, groundbreaking!
Make your dreams come true, your shopping dreams that is, at the Dreams On Air Sample Sale. With the entire front of the store filled with discounted luxury items, you might want to check this sale out! Spacious and tidy with pleasant sales associates, you will be sure to enjoy your shopping experience. Enjoy up to an additional 50% off already marked sample and stock items for up to an overall 80% off.
There are T-Shirts by Millennial as low as $20 and a suede duster trench vest by Sarah Swann for $500. With this price range, everyone will be able to find some items within their budget. Not to mention, there is a wide selection of shoes and accessories. The most disappointing part about the shoe selection is that all shoes are sample size so if you’re a size 36, you’re in luck. Mules, pumps, and flats, they have them all.
Cinderella for the day, Shoe Box Sample Sale, we’re looking for the perfect pair!
By: Nanda Rai
One of the most exciting sales yet! The Shoe Box has collaborated with 260 5th ave, the hub of all sample sales, tempting us to tower stack our closet shelves with even more shoes. As soon as you enter the sale, you’ll see, 1 pair for $80 and 2 pairs for $140. Any shoe, boot, sandal, flat, classic, sneaker, furry slipper, the list really goes on and yes they really mean any pair for this price! The workers are helpful and theres an area in the back to sit and try on, just be aware you’ll have to leave your belongings with security at the front entrance. The sale offers women sizes ranging from 5-11, keep in mind that not all of the sizes have the same options, however there were enough styles/trendy seasonal options to go around. *Oprah’s voice* “You get a pair! You get a pair!” The crowd goes wild*
I must mention SCHUTZ (average retail at $170 per pump) leading the sale and bringing the real heat to a summers end! As soon as I walked in, I routinely snap pictures of any shoe that catches my eye, and after I make another round looking for all my favorite designers. FYI, SCHUTZ had the largest selection available and shined in all the spotlight:
For more of my favorite finds, take a look at all of the shoe candy below: Designers to lookout for: The ShoeBox, of course! Rebecca Minkoff (avg. retail price $130 a pair), Loeffler Randall (avg. retail price $250 and above), Daya by Zendaya, Vince Camuto, and new fresh designers in the mix.
The Solar Eclipse (August 21, 2017) did have a few of us squinty eyed huh? A visit to Showroom Seven had myself as well as a few ShopDroppers doing the same! Up to the 7th floor, walking into a maze of showrooms, mini offices huddled in centerfield, fashion archive bookshelves, racks and tables; stacked with clothing, jewelry, bags, belt and shoes. Not forgetting, the bloggers (thats me), ShopDrop team (thats us!) mixed in all the fun. What was my perspective you might ask? Hmm, with a paintbrush in hand,* “what was I really looking at?” A stellar fashion house that is! In its truest art form, “organized chaos,” INDEED! Cheers to another fun sample sale adventure because isn’t that what we all are working to spend our money on, its no secret. 😉
There is a ShopDropApp special event sample sale today at Showroom Seven located at (501 10th ave) and before scrolling down for an exclusive sneak peak, I must say the price range is a little obscure. Putting the “responsible spending” shopping advice aside, what I loved most about this sample sale is you’re guaranteed a good buy with this melting pot of designers.
Did I mention, free champagne, 5% off if you’re coming on behalf of ShopDrop, lets turn it up a notch right before NYFW, shall we? Thank you Showroom Seven for opening your doors to us on this special occasion. H.A.S.H.T.A.G : #eclipse #OnceInASolarEclipseSale. So here it goes, pretty pink suede, cool corduroy, heavy leather, light down feather jackets. All of these pieces decorated the racks and I was immediately convinced that I wasn’t prepared for Fall as I am now, after this sale! Take a peak at my favorite finds!
Starting tonight, Showroom Seven will be hosting it’s first sample sale in collaboration with ShopDrop. We had the opportunity to check it out and here is our feedback: great pieces, high prices. If you are looking to discover new brands and unique pieces and price isn’t an issue, then this is a sale for you to check out. If you are looking for great prices, then the Shoe Box sample sale is probably better for you.
So below we are including photos from the event. Thanks to Maura and Swanky Savages for running the model & photography drill. Beautiful job! So while you could find some dresses for $39 from the Robin brand, most items that are really cool range in the $250 or $350 range. Tonight Fashion Sherlock is joining us and will take over our story on Instagram – make sure you are following us! For a list of brands at the sample sale, see our sample sale post from last week.
See images below – most items are one of a kind and come in single copies. There will be free champagne tonight. Can’t wait to see you there!

I just stopped in for some eye candy window retail at Lemlem’s sample sale located at the studio (3rd floor) on 495 Broadway (heart of Soho), which lasts until 7:00pm today. I must say, Lemlem is an airy fairy Hampton’s goddess, martini gal and fashion force to be reckoned with!

Lemlem you are such a breath of fresh air ! Amazing sales!
Other than Lemlem’s apparel showcasing its best of the best highlighter colors on soft linen sheer rompers, dresses, joggers and blouses, I can’t comment enough on how easy the shopping experience was. Everything was spaced out, deserving of their own spotlight and the chart below shows pricing for all accessory lovers 🙂 Upfront in your face like hey, no excuses now, buy me today!
Even though theres no private try on area, the minute you hold up one of Lemlem’s statement pieces in the mirror, the gold jewelry display is right beside you, and all of sudden you lose your marbles, —fair warning. Speaking of marble, there’s a beautiful gray marble table, displaying Lemlems very own summer staple, airy beach joggers! Definitely a buy! The pictures below scream, I’m not your boring gray sweatpants for the winter, wear me right now. Also, look out for the treasure box with the cute little bralets. Lemlem you have it all covered for the summer!
