Smells like the Holidays at the Nest Fragrances and Manduka Sample Sale

Nest Fragrances and Manduka Sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

I love nothing more than a good oil diffuser. They have the fragrant power of a traditional candle, without the house-burning capabilities…

This week 260 hosted the Nest Fragrances and Manduka yoga supplies sample sale. At 6:00pm, during a light rain shower, there was a line down the block and yet barely any people shopping indoors. There were candles, lotions, soaps, reed diffusers, and liquidless diffusers. All of the scents seems to follow a holiday them. There were pine scents, vanilla scents, a warm subtle cinnamon, and a sugar cookie scent. Many of the products, including the Saharan Spice, Birchwood Pine, and Sugar Cookie, can be found online. While the discounts are not astronomical, these products are current.

The Manduka section was much smaller. There were plenty of yoga matts and foam boxes, and four racks with yoga apparel

We gave this sale a 7 out of 10 for the current and seasonally appropriate inventory.

Diptyque Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Low quantities at the Diptyque Sample Sale

Diptyque sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

I have a confession to make: I don’t quite get all the fanfare over Diptyque and their products. Sure, they smell nice and come in chic bottles, but their prices are crazy high. I just can’t fathom spending over $35 on something that will not last. Which is why I was excited to stop by the Diptyque sample sale held at Century 21 to see if I could grab a candle at a more reasonable price. The sale opened at 8 a.m, and already at 8:33 a.m., we were receiving information that the there was almost no merchandise left and that the line was around the block. When I stopped by around 12 p.m., there was not much left. While there was a limit of 10 candles per customer, there was mostly Christmas sets and a few bottles of perfume left. There are still two more days left for the sale, but I’m not sure if there will be enough merchandise for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Due to the still high prices and the low inventory we gave the Diptyque sample sale a 6 out of 10. It seems doubtful that there will be price reductions as the merchandise was moving quickly. There were also people at the sale who were obvious resellers. Besides letting them check out 10 items at a time, they weren’t doing much to stop them.

260 Sample Sale Fashion Moleskine Nest Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop Swell

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!
