The Perfect Father’s Day Gift – Gant Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the chance to look at the Gant Sample Sale down on 151 Wooster Street in Soho. The space was filled with a great selection of menswear, stocking classic blazers, button ups, t-shirts and shoes. While it also had a limited selection for women!

If you have yet to get a gift for father’s day, don’t fear! The Gant Sample Sale had great merchandise avaliable in a ton of sizes. The menswear sections had amazing blazers that were nearly 75%! As well as a variety of colors in staple button ups. While the women’s wear did have limited selectino, they had some great shorts, dresses and outerwear.

We rated the Gant Sample Sale a 7.5 out of 10. They had amazing merchandise for men but were lacking in the women’s department. There was also no line to get in or even for the dressing room! If you are looking for a great father’s day gift, look no further! The Gant Sample Sale has everything you need to treat any Dad! We recommend that you go and check it out.

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.

Jimmy Choo Sample Sale Review

Jimmy_Choo_Pumps

By: Maura McNulty

Well, it happened. As I sit here writing this, I am still in disbelief that not one, but two pairs of Jimmy Choos are in my closet; not the banged up stuff thats unfortunately a risk for high end brand sales, either, but shoes that are practically in mint condition.

I was fortunate enough to score a VIP press pass (I love my job!), so on a cold Wednesday morning, I was huddled in line outside of the sale, with the other “VIPs”, ready to score some sweet kicks.

To be honest, its a mixed bag when it comes to name brand sample sales; they tend to be too crowded, its only basic pieces, or the prices are still astronomically high. Yet, the Jimmy Choo sale was well stocked, the prices are amazing, and the space is huge.

There was also a great selection of purses clutches. It seemed like that had enough boots for an army as well, but the table was too cluttered to get a good enough look.Jimmy_Choo_Prices

All in all, its a sale that’s definitely worth checking out, especially if you love labels. The shoes are gorgeous, and the prices are low enough for a few good splurges; everything at this sale is worth the splurge. Check it out- todays the last day!

Oscar De La Renta Sample Sale Review

Oscar_de_la_Renta_Exterior

I woke up today, looking for a sample sale, so I immediately logged onto my ShopDrop app. I noticed the Oscar de la Renta sale right away, but kept my expectations low, seeming too good to be true. There won’t be any stock left, I told myself on the way over, and that’s if you can wait out the long line that has to be there.

Well, dear shoppers, I stand corrected. The Oscar de la Renta sale had an extensive stock of everything, without the crowds of people you typically have to push through when a bigger brand holds a sample sale. Coats, furs, menswear, womenswear, children’s wear; the sale even had a home goods section!

Prices were in the $100+ range, but the pieces on sale were so true to the artistry of Mr. De la Renta, that plenty of stock is definitely worth the splurge.

Check it out! The sale ends October 29!

Pratesi Sample Sale Review

Pratesi is an Italian luxury linen retailer, with sets selling for upwards of $1,000. Their sample sale, taking place at 317 W 33rd St, is selling old stock– including sheet sets of all sizes, shams, towels, and more– at discounted prices

A disclaimer right off the bat: given the steep prices the pieces retail for, even after they’re discounted they still number in the hundreds of dollar for sets. While some things, such as small mats and hand towels, run cheaper at around $30, expect to find most products selling for at least $390. While that’s a little steep for me, personally, it’s definitely still better than $1,000– so if you’ve got a craving for luxury linens, be sure to check it out.

The sale has a very short run, and ends today; the showroom is enormous, so there’s still plenty of stock to browse through.

Riedel & Sferra Sample Sale

sferra_riedel_featured_image

By: Maura

Some days, you just need to buy a glass of wine. Other days, you just need to buy glasses for said wine. Wednesday was one of those days, so I decided to upgrade my apartment by going to the Riedel & Sferra sample sale in Chelsea Market.

The sale is a little tricky to find; its right off of the food court that has Li-Lac chocolates. If you get lost, chances are there is a friendly security guard who will point you in the right direction, as much as New Yorkers hate asking for directions.

The space was a little crowded when I walked in, but where there is a crowd, there’s amazing discounts nearby. Half the store was lined with luxury glass wears Riedel is known for; the set up was so impeccable, I kept my distance in fear of knocking over 100 wine glasses with my backpack. There were a lot of items that I wish I could find use for; decanters, wine flight sets, votives, vases, glass ice buckets, so essentially everything on a pinterest-bride’s dream registry. However, there was also plenty of great deals on more mundane, everyday stuff. Four wine glasses for $20? Yes, please!


The items don’t just stop at the kitchen; the other side of the store is dedicated to the soft, Italian bed linens of Sferra. Packages of every type of sheet were nestled in boxes like vinyl records, any and all sheet sizes available. Down duvet inserts are in the back of the room, with bath mats, towels, washcloths, and more lining the far wall. I decided that maybe it wouldn’t be the best idea to take off my shoes and lounge in a pile of towels as soft as clouds, so I mercifully restrained myself.

Prices for the Sferra were more of a mixed bag; each product is individually priced, often around the $100 mark. The throws are nice, but more decorative than comfy; perhaps a good gift for a friend who doesn’t eat bagel bites on her bed at 3 in the morning.

All in all, I was able to buy two owl-shaped whiskey stones, priced at $3 each, and a package of four of the sleekest wine glasses ever, for $20. If you want to play grownup and treat yourself for some nice household items, I really recommend this sale.

JADE Swim Sample Sale

JADE Swim, end of summer, sample sale!

By: Nanda Rai

I’m not sure if the summer season and the sample sale gods are friends or they’re on the love/hate battlefield, but I’m having a huge dilemma. That is? I don’t have enough weekends left to wear these color block pieces I’m obsessing over at the JADE Swim Sample sale, located at the Chelsea Market (15th street and 9th ave). Starting today, Wednesday August 30th (10:30AM—7:00PM) — Sunday September 3rd 2017 (10:30AM-5:00PM) I suggest you walk over there if possible while reading, its a promised good sale, guaranteed and the atmosphere is so fun! Chelsea Market is the ultimate playground to shop in!

Lets start with our shopper PQQ- price, quality and quantity. The price list, super straight forward. Separate pieces are $29 and $59 for a one piece. If we were to compare retail prices? Their one-side Apex swimsuit’s retail price dives into the deep side of the sea, at $198, but now? $59! All yours! The Micro one-piece retails for $220 and the Chain Reaction V Neck one-piece, $150. Now, $59 for all! Also, the separate pieces ( I suggest mix & match) range in retail price from $75-110, and now selling out at this sample sale for? $29 !!! Insanity. I could not be more happy writing this to all of our shoppers!

Price List

Ultimate steal, right? I cannot wait for you to have first dibs. Even though its preferred not to try on the swim, there are dressing rooms in the back and I suggest putting it over undergarments to make sure you’re getting your right size! There is plenty in stock for all sizes, the white suits are seemingly running low, however every other color is in attendance. Also, the quality is undeniably beautiful, I mean we all know JADE swimwear as one of the hottest fashion competitors in the industry rated highly by InStyle Magazine. Trust us, or trust that toned gut you’ve been working out all summer, this sale is amazing!

Sizes run from Extra Small, Small, Medium & Large but it did look like they’re made smaller than average. The color palette that you’ll see is beyond perfection. The ocean blue, the strawberry red, the sand tan. (yes I’m making these names up, but i promise you’ll envision this exact color from this fun description) Then you have your super cool, “This is me not trying, I’m an natural” collection giving you LIFE with our favorite core colors, matte black, bright white and a really moss olive that if you ever get stranded on an island, you’ll be so in-tune with the color of nature.

What I love most are the styles, the sharp cuts that make an edgy yet curvy look under the sun. I know, groundbreaking!
