Yes, we are just surprised as you are. The Paul Carroll sample sale was highly anticipated, however, it proved to be a waste of time for everyone. The sample sale is supposedly held at their showroom. There are so many strange things going on at that place, that we were unsure if we were vising the correct location. The sale comprised of 2 sad racks of closing from many seasons ago. Prices are also crazy high.
Our advice on the Paul Carol sample sale: spend your money elsewhere! Happy shopping!

This is the first time Alala held the sample sale in their showroom, and it was a huge success if we don’t say so ourselves. Discounts were phenomenal, ranging from 70% – 80% off.

Whether you are bustling around work or relaxing on sandy beaches, everyone is always in need of more bags and shoes. As the humidity and temperatures increase so do the discounts! Today we have curated the top ten summer bags and shoes for all under 150$.
The Stila X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale had a short line outside but the second you walked in, you were consumed by madness. There were frenzies of people hoarding all different types of merchandise. The selection of makeup brushes and skin care offered both by Artis and Dr. Jart was great. While the selection of merchandise offered from Stila was all the ugly and outlandish colors that didn’t sell at Sephora this season. There were crazy resellers who were stocking products without even looking at them. Honestly the Stilla X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale felt like something out of a horror film.
Overall we rated the Stila X Dr. Jart X Tocca X Artis Sample Sale a 4 out of 10. The pricing on most of the merchandise was simply 50% and it seemed like the selection was just this seasons left overs. The line to pay wrapped around the entire venue.There were multiple people with, “I say no less than” six bags filled with all different types of products. You may want your beauty to be eternal but it is going to come at a price.

Who doesn’t love Manolos this time of year? The Manolo Blahnik sale has a significant amount of shoes discounted. However, prices are only 40% off at the moment. Our sources say Manolo Blahnik will be upping the discount to 60% off soon. We will keep you updated.
As mentioned before, the Manolo Blahnik sale has a great selection of shoes. Currently, there are still many sizes available. However, the longer you wait the less sizes they have. You have to pick your poison. Would you rather pay more and get the style you love, or pay less and have to choose from what’s left. Either way, you are getting a pretty good discount on shoes that normally begin at $500. The sale is held at their cozy retail store on the west side. The staff is very attentive and will help you find the perfect pair. Happy Shopping!
UPDATE 8/6/18 We are about a month into the extended Manolo sale. We are dissapointed to report only some shoes are marked down to 80%. Most shoes are now marked down 60%. Right now it’s mostly limited to summer shoes – sandals and open-toed heels. However there are sill a ton of sizes left! Updated pictures are included below.

Skincare is something that is often overlooked, but vastly important. Take care of yourself at the Korres sample sale. Find all your skincare needs here. Korres products are usually pricey, but at the Korres sample sale, you’ll find products for up to 60% off. However, don’t be fooled! We found shower gel for cheaper on other sites. Your best bet is to do some research before you go. Look up your must-haves to see if you’re better off going somewhere else.
The space is quite small, which leaves little room for inventory. We were told that certain items may sell quickly. (Restocking? We didn’t hear anything.) The staff is very friendly and attentive. They also have a few samples you can try on! If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s worth popping in this two day sale for 10 minutes. Happy shopping!

We are in the middle of a heat wave this holiday week in New York City. The 4th of July is approaching, the temperatures are rising, and apparently so are prices at the Maison De Papillon sample sale. The clothing was definitely very high quality, but prices didn’t meet sample sale expectations. Discounts were barely 50% off, which makes you rethink your decision on whether to leave your air conditioned office to visit this sale.
We gave the Maison De Papillon sale a 4 out of 10 ShopDrop Rating for the obvious reasons. It’s a holiday week, go and enjoy yourself. Get out of New York for a bit. There will be better deals next week. Happy Shopping! (And Happy 4th!)
