260 Sample Sale Fashion Review Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

The S’well, Nest, and Moleskine Sample Sale is ANYTHING BUT SWELL.

By: Jacqueline Munro

I’ve never seen such a big shi* show in my entire life… Bravo 260, you’ve outdone yourselves! Looking at the line for this sale you would’ve thought they were giving away free diamonds… but sadly, no. Just overpriced candles, water bottles, and notebooks.

By the time I got there, there were hardly any S’well bottles left, and the ones that they did have were not cute. Ther larger bottles were going for $17 and the medium (normal) sized ones were going for $10. In my opinion, that’s how they should be priced in the first place, so I’m not going to praise them for dropping their sample sale prices to those numbers. As for the Moleskine notebooks, there were a ton. They had lots of cute colors and sizes, and some even had cute characters like Batman on them. With that said though, the prices were….. what they should always be? I just can’t imagine paying any more than the sample sale prices for one of those things. And last but not least, Nest. Before I got into the sale there was a man with a megaphone announcing the scents that they had sold out of. It sounded like a lot of the good, non-holiday scents were gone. But I’m not a Nest fanatic so what would I know. There were still a decent amount of candles, diffusers, and perfumes left but the discounts were BLEH!!!!! A follower of ours pointed out that there are currently Nest products on Nordstrom Rack for cheaper!

Overall I rated this sale a 5/10. I can NOT recommend going to this sale. To be honest, I was going to give it a 0/10, but the number of crazed people in the sale made me feel like there had to be something good about it. I just genuinely hope that none of you are foolish enough to wait on line to get in. I only did it because I had to. Good luck, shoppers. You’re going to need it for this sale.

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!
