Everyone was shocked to see a Prada Sample Sale, the first in 11 years, being held at 260 sample sale. Invites to 260’s email list went out, inviting shoppers to come the 20th before being opened to the public on the 21st. We had such high hopes for this sale and they were crashed by the lack of inventory at the sale and the high as hell prices. 40-50% off was the average price reduction… and I was not happy.
You can find a better deal at any department store, so don’t waste your time waiting on line for god knows how long and leaving empty handed. There were maybe 4 racks of women’s ready to wear and some sparsely filled shelves of bags. The nylon bag table was full, but everything else was empty.
The shoe selection was disappointing to say the least. Maybe 10 different styles and barely any sizes. The men’s section took up the entire downstairs area, but that room had 2 racks of clothes, some shelves and tables with wallets and a couple of bags. There was also a small table of exotics that was pretty full. Probably, because the items are so expensive (I assume.)
Overall, 5.5/10. Not worth the trouble or the money. You’ll find everything at this sale cheaper at Nordstrom soon.
