Set up: The Buscemi sample sale was overwhelming and crowded. The mens shoes and women’s were on opposite sides of the room, and there were a few clothing racks in the far back of the room. The set up of the shoes was quite organized, and the way they portrayed the shoes looked nice. The space was pact with customers, and it looked like the shoes were selling fast. This sale is worthwhile to attend if you are looking for a new pair of high top sneakers or a casual pair of slides (that was what the sale had the most of).
Merchandise/pricing: The prices of this sale still remained high. I still think that it is quite expensive to pay $175 for a pair of casual sneakers. The prices of this sale went as follows: shoes (samples $100, non-samples $175), coats around $300, pants around $100, and bags around $150. There were a lot of shoes, but the mens had double the amount of the women. Customers were piling in fast; I think the shoes won’t last until Sunday! This sale also had mostly high-top sneakers and slides- if you are not interested in either of those I don’t suggest you go.
Rate: 5.5/10 Cool shoes, yet pricey still.
