The long awaited Hermés Sample Sale has finally arrived and the Shopdrop team was READY. We were up and out at 5:30 am to make sure we were at this sale, arguably one of the most important ones of the year. 5:30 may be early for most of us (trust me), but when we got there we managed to be 60th on line! The first ones there got there at 11pm the night before and came from Massachusetts, now that’s DEDICATION. After waiting around 3 hours, we finally got into the mall around 8:30. We then waited until about 9:45 to be let into the actual room of the sale and from there, another 15 minutes until we finally entered the sale.
The second the doors opened, there was a mad dash to the women’s shoes for the coveted Oran Sandal. By the time the Shopdrop team got there, there were hardly any Orans left, the only ones being the super expensive exotic ones but don’t worry, there was plenty of other shoes available in all of our sizes!. Shoes included Thalassa sandals and Oasis Sandals, all at 50% off. They are restocking shoes but sadly no more Orans. They also have boots available but even at 50% off they are still super expensive.
They also had a large selection of silk scarves and home goods. Silk scarves ranged in price, the 45 cm twillies being less than $100 (OMG), and other sizes ranging from $200-$400. They also had limits on how many you can buy, 5 for the silk scarves and 2 for cashmere. The selection of ties was also pretty great and definitely one of the better deals. They had a large selection of towels, pillows, blankets and some canvas bags. They also had a lot of ready to wear for both men and women, menswear being 60% off and womenswear being 50%.
The lines for this sale are massive and will continue to be over the next few days, be prepared to spend the day at the mall waiting on line. Fortunately, the lines are very well managed by the nicest staff and security. Go at your own risk (I may or may not have spent more than my rent) and happy shopping!!
