A Workout Girl’s Paradise – The Bandier Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Bandier Sample Sale at 260 Fifth Avenue Location. The racks are filled with a variety of merchandise and an assortment of different sizes. Including fun and colorful leggings, tops, bras and matching sets.

The Bandier Sample Sale was a dream to anyone women who loves fitness, as well as those who spend their days dressed in athleisure. The sale offered everything from high intensity workout pants to chic bomber jackets and everything in-between. The Bandier Sample Sale had an amazing selection of both performance and leisure sneakers, including brands such as Haus by Golden Goose, Athletic Propulsion Lab, Adidas and Nike.

We rated the Bandier Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. Although the Bandier Sample Sale did have a great selection of merchandise and sizes available, the prices were still quite high. There was no line to get inside but the environment was hectic. They did have a great selection of both clothing and shoes so we recommend you check it out!

A Sample Sale Melting Pot: Swell, Nest, and Moleskine

By: Cristina Martin 

You wouldn’t think those three brands would be under one roof, but leave it to 260 Sample Sale to have a Swell, Nest, and Moleskine sample sale. I have to say, it was strange grabbing a water bottle for my mom, a notebook for work, and then randomly picking up a candle all in one place.

The Swell, Nest, and Moleskine sample sale got a 5 out of 10 ShopDrop Rating. The best thing about this sale was the price range. This is my first time leaving a sample sale with 3 items for under $25. Notebooks and Swell bottles started at $10. The Moleskine bags and most Nest products were still pretty expensive. You can get a Wood Wick candle at Bed Bath and Beyond for $25 and it will smell nice and burn evenly. The store layout was very strange as well, which made it a mad house. People were pushing, shoving, and getting annoyed if you stood somewhere too long. Even the 260 staff was was noticeably getting frustrated with the crowd. They would say “excuse me” really loud with an attitude as they made their way across the store. The shopping experience was really awful. I could’t wait to get out of there.

If you’re looking for any of these brands for really cheap and don’t mind the madness, then check our the Swell, Nest, and Moleskine sample sale. You can grab a lot at these low prices. I had to wait about 20 minutes to get it. In my opinion, it wasn’t worth the wait. Try to go when there is no line, less craziness, and you will be able to get away with some good stuff!

Get Ready for a Scavenger Hunt at the Rent the Runway Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

The Rent the Runway sample sale was unpleasant from start to finish. When I got there, I was greeted by a line that wrapped around the corner! After waiting 30 minutes, I finally got past the doors ready to shop. Unfortunately,the space was way too crowded! On top of having to practically climb over people to just look at the clothing, most of the merchandise was dirty or damaged. Some of it was downright disgusting!

How I felt walking through the Rent the Runway Sample Sale

The only positives of the Rent the Runway sample sale were: 1. Everything is organized by size, which makes it easier to narrow your search .  You don’t have to scour the store to find your size. Also, sizes ranged from 0 – 22, so there really was something for everyone here. 2. The prices were pretty decent. Non-big-name gowns and dresses were below $100, and big name gowns and dresses were below $200.

We are giving the Rent the Runway sample sale a 3 out of 10. It is NOT worth the wait nor the crowds to go on an endless hunt to find something that is not so obviously worn.

My personal advice: I went to this sale last year, but on one of the last days. I didn’t have to wait in a huge line for damaged clothing, and they had price reductions. I left with 2 really great dresses. If it’s worth anything… save your time and go at the end if you are really in need for some dresses.

Hope we could help! Details and photos below.

Update Your Work Wardrobe at the Theory Sample Sale for Women

Theory Sample Sale

By Cristina Martin 

The Theory sample sale had some really great pieces. Theory is well known for their stylish power suits and minimalist approach to professional attire. You can find both professional and casual pieces at the Theory sample sale. Their accessories were on point as well! You can choose from a wide variety of handbags, scarves, hats, and belts. However, their shoe selection was rather limited.

Now prices… We rated the Theory sample sale a 7 out of 10, because all although their selection was excellent, the prices were still a little high. You had to sift through the clothing to get a really good deal. For example, these suede pants were originally $1,195 and were on sale for $99. Now that’s a gem! On the other hand, a leather jacket was $445 and on sale for $399. We are keeping our fingers crossed for further price reductions!

John Paul Ataker Sample Sale Does Not Disappoint

John Paul Ataker sample sale review shopdrop app new york

While we’ve seen the John Paul Ataker sample sale on our app for a few months already, we weren’t sure how it worked until we got over there and checked it out for ourselves. The key to the sale being ongoing is that it takes place at the back of the flagship store on Madison Ave. The racks are lined with current season gowns and separates. All sample sale items are in the back of the store. In terms of variety, all items in the store are meant for evening wear, think charity balls, gala dinners, weddings and parties. There are many designs and sizes. An added bonus is that you the store has a ton of its original fabric. If you like a gown and want to alter it, you can get extra material and work on it later. Items on the sample sale rack start at 50% off and drop all the way down to 90% off retail. The full-price gowns sell for $1,300-$8,000. Sample sale items cost between $150 and $780. If you are in need for an eye-stopping evening gown, stop into John Paul Ataker and get yourself one. As always, photos and prices below. Enjoy!

Oh, and remember to mention ShopDrop when checking out – you will get an extra 5% off.

Make a Statement with Finds from the Fivestory Sample Sale

Fivestory Sample Sale

By Christina Martin I Photo Credit: Racked

If you are looking for your next statement piece to stand out at a wedding or gala, head down to the Fivestory sample sale. Fivestory, an Upper East Side boutique with a reputation for carrying funky pieces did not disappoint! The Fivestory sample sale had a variety of tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, hats, jewelry, and even home décor. Some well-known brands include Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Nicholas Kirkwood and a large selection of Carolina Herrera. The prices were insane! All apparel are sold at an incredible 80% off, and shoes were at 75% off. However, there is a caveat. Usually, set prices are listed according to item, but the Fivestory sample sale lists the percentage discounts instead. So, make sure your phone calculator is handy to find out how much each item costs. This sale is pricier than most other 260 sample sales with the average price per item closer to $200 than to $100. As always, you can find the deets and pictures below. Enjoy!

Replenish Your Closet at the Jason Wu Sample Sale

Jason Wu Sample Sale

 

By: Cristina Martin 

If you are willing to lay out the $$$, t’s worth leaving your cozy home to go to the Jason Wu sample sale. Head down to SoHo to score tops, bottoms, accessories, and even evening gowns. They also have a small section of Manolo Blahnik shoes! Jason Wu retail prices are $800+. At the Jason Wu sample sale you will find tops for $100, leather bottoms for $175, shoes (including the Manolo’s) for $125, and dresses for $275. This is your chance to get great deals on high-end fashion. The selection was plentiful, however, the discounts weren’t that impressive. Gowns that retail for $1,600 were on sale for $850 at the sample sale – not a great discount for someone who lives and breathes sample sales. Zip up your coat, and get out there before they’re all gone.

260 Sample Sale Maura McNulty Sample Sale Review Wolford

Wolford Sample Sale Review

Wolford Sample SaleBy Maura McNulty

On Saturday, my mother was in the city visiting me, so of course the first thing I did with her was check out a sample sale. We looked up sales using the map feature on the ShopDrop app, when she mentioned how much she loves Wolford, so we decided to head over to 260 Sample Sale’s Fifth Avenue location to find some tight tights.

Since it was at the end of the week, the stock was a little picked over, but there were still plenty of hosiery, teddies, and ready-to-wear options to chose from.

Personally, my favorite aspect of the sale was the jewelry; towards the back of the room, there’s a table set up with the most beautiful bejeweled chokers and necklaces. Paired with a silk nightie and some heels, and you’re on your way to looking like Bella Hadid stepping out of Tao and into a sea of photographers.Wolford Jewelry

If you’re looking for a chill sale with some amazing markdowns, make sure to head over to the Wolford Sample Sale at 260 Sample Sale. Head over fast, though; the sale ends tonight (Saturday, 10/21) at 7pm!
