Gottex sample sale makes us want to work out!

By: Gabriella Rose
Set up: Gottex sample sale took place in a small showroom, with tons of racks filled with merchandise. Each rack carries a different size. Gottex has tons of sports bras, leggings, t-shirts and hoodies. Each and every item hangs neatly, which is always a plus at a sale. The Gottex sample sale is definitely worthwhile you need more work-out clothing.
Merchandising/pricing: The pricing for this sale is CHEAP. Everything was between $10 and $20. The catch – cash only. Make sure to hit up an ATM before you go.
The quality of the merchandise is amazing as well, and all the prints are unique. This sale had TONS of leggings and sports bras. The staff was also super sweet and helpful.
There is plenty of stock, but I still would not wait until the last day to attend this sale.
Rate: 6.5/10 Amazing athleisure items at phenomenal prices.

Sand by Saya: Filled with Flip Flops & Jewelry!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Sand by Saya sale was in a small and crowded space. Jewelry, hair clips, headbands, and rings, were everywhere in sight. The display of the merchandise was a fail- everything looked poor in quality. The room had flip flops on one side, and it took over the entire wall. It was rather easy to find the exact size that you wanted. This sale is only worthwhile to go to if you are interested in purchasing a random piece of jewelry- other than that, it was not a hit.

Merchandise/ pricing: The pricing of the sale was as follows: jewelry $15-30, flip flops $25-$35, hair clips/ hair ties $15, and sneakers $59. There was not a lot of shoes left in stock, and there was only one of each piece of jewelry as well. I saw some gorgeous earrings and necklaces, and one cute rainbow ring. There were also some hair clips that were all different colors. This sale had some great finds but was very hit or miss at the end of the day. I would recommend stopping by if you are nearby.

Rate: 4.5/10 Some pretty rings and necklaces, but mostly not such a great sale

Even the great bags at James Chan don’t make it worth it to go

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: This sample sale was extremely small but there were some great bags and heels. The sale was set up with a few clothing racks in the far back, and in the front were shoes, bags, and hats. Everything at the store was organized and laid out very nicely. The staff was not sweet- they all sat in the back of the room when I walked in and did not even get up. Overall, this sale had some great finds but it still is not worthwhile to attend.

Merchandise/pricing: The pricing of this sale was still very high: most bags were $80, dresses $70, cardigans $198, dresses $125, and cotton dresses $98. The shoes were the best part of this sale, however. ALL shoes were $40, which was a great price. There were around 10 shoes left- all fancy heels. The sizes for shoes ranged from size 6-10, and there were tons in stock. As far as clothing goes, there was one of each item (very hit or miss!) The cardigans were mostly made out of wool and alpaca, which made it a harsh texture and the opposite of a cozy soft winter piece. This sale was not worth the travel, unless you live close by.

Rate: 4.5/10 Great bags and heels, the rest is EH.

Bogner sample sale: Great winter coats for everyone!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: This sale had the women’s section in the front of the store, and the men’s was in the far back corner. This sale was very organized, and all of the coats were surprisingly categorized by item and hung extremely neat. It was so easy to find the color and type of coat you were looking for, which made this sale a great experience. There was a small table in the back that had some accessories in it, and there was a small shoe section (5-6 pairs left) as well.

Merchandise/pricing: My favorite aspect of this sale was that each of the items was individually marked on their tags- Yay, I didn’t have to hurt my neck after starring at the pricing board on the top wall this time around. This sale was 60% current season, and 70% off previous seasons. As far as the coats, most were original $1300 and were not around $700-$800. The new prices were not so great and remained pretty high. As far as quantity, there were tons of coats in stock. I only noticed one rack of pants/ shorts, however. Also, the men’s section was smaller than the women’s; they had tons of coats and pants still. This sale Is great if you are overdue for a winter coat, and if not- not necessary to attend.

Rate: 5.5/10 Eh prices, great merchandise, tons in stock.

Multi-brands sale: A BAG LOVERS HEAVEN

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Multi-brands sample sale was very organized, being that it was in such a small room. This sale was comprised of 8 great brands. The room was set up with bags everywhere, but the tables were then categorized by brand. It was quite easy to find the bag you want, and there were a few sales associates there helping the customers as well. In the table in the middle of the room, there were a bunch of clutches for events and weddings. There was such gorgeous stuff! Along the walls were big handbags, and they all came in multiple colors. This sale was worthwhile to go to.

Merchandise/pricing: This sale had amazing deals. Most of the bags were $25, and wallets were around $10. The bags still had tags on them, and were being sold in retail for around $300. All of the bags came in tons of colors and sizes; there was a ton of everything, and even more in the back. This sale laid out all of their wallets and bags very nicely, and it was so easy to find what you wanted. It is worthwhile to attend this sale- you will defiantly walk out with a new gorgeous bag!

Rate: 6/10 Great deals, gorgeous bags.

Buscemi sale: cool shoes, yet pricey.

By: Gabriella Rose

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.

Halston sample sale: AMAZING!

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Halston sample sale was extremely organized and an enjoyable shopping experience. The space had The Arrivals coats in the front entrance, and the rest of the room was dedicated to everything Halston. All of The Arrivals coats were hung nicely, and all grouped according to style. The Halston clothing was also categorized by clothing type; there were pants racks, dress racks, shirt racks, and gown racks. The staff was also very sweet and was able to grab additional sizes in the back room.

Merchandise/ pricing: The Arrivals coats ranged from $99-$800, and on average the Halston clothing was $30. Halston had a bunch of clothing in stock, with multiple colors as well. They had great fancy bubble dresses that one could wear to an event: those were retail for $455 and were now selling for $25. I went on the website to see the dress, and it is on sale there for $275… people most probably think that is a good sale as well! Halston also had the cutest skirts for both the winter and summer. There were unlimited sizes of everything (and even more in the back.) Most of the merchandise was still in plastic bags from the factories- which means it was never worn by anyone! This sale was great, and worthwhile to go. No one can beat these excellent deals!

Rate: 8/10 Great deals, unlimited merchandise, fun experience. Worth it to go.

ShopShops: Just, NO.

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The set up of this sale was on the peculiar side; it was right next (and rather on top of) an open office space with multiple people working. In terms of this sale, the merchandise was also messy. All of the racks were not categorized by item, besides for the pants/skirts rack. The rest of the racks had a bunch of different occasion and style dresses, sweaters, coats, and more. It was not easy finding what you specifically wanted, and the staff was also super quiet/ not helpful. The accessories and shoes were placed in the back of the room, and there was tons of merchandise.

Pricing/ merchandise: All of the items were each individually marked with colored stickers; the prices ranged from $10-$100 (so I’ve thought…). Despite the fact that the pricing sheets had the color-coded stickers with prices beside them, tons of the items were “exceptions.” I found it rather disappointing when I picked up a Moose Knuckle coat and seeing the blue tag on it, thinking it was $100, to later discover that this was an exception piece- bummer! As far as the rest of the clothing, there were tons of scarves, (not worth the travel if you want just a scarf..) and sweaters. I was pleasantly surprised to see a few Alice and Olivia sweaters fro $50. Lastly, there were some great shoes (channel slides) however it was very hit or miss: the chances that the pair you liked happened to be your exact size were slim to none. There was mostly one of each shoe. Honestly, this sample sale made me feel that I was at a thrift shop. Defiantly not worth the travel, unless you live in the same apartment building.

Rate: 3.5/10 Some good finds, but mostly the entire sale was hit or totally miss.
