The Sam. Sample sale had great winter coats but at a discount of approximately 50% to 60%, better discounts can be found elsewhere. Simply put, this sale was underwhelming. Women’s coats were the most heavily featured item, but there were styles for men and children as well. Overall the price markdowns were significant, but paying upwards of $200-$300 at a sale is definitely not what I would call a great steal. If you are in the market for a new winter coat then this might be worth attending, but don’t go in with high expectations. (I tried to get a new coat because my four year old horrible purple coat is stain-ridden, but alas— I was unsuccessful.)
There was a good range of sizes, colors, and styles available. There were long lines to enter, and unless you are on the sale’s guest list you might end up waiting over 20 minutes in the cold just to get a jacket (kind of ironic, no?).
The coats were hung up neatly on hangers. There was a women’s section, men’s section, and children’s section all organized by style.
All sales are final. Cash and major credit cards are accepted. The opening times for each day vary; be sure to check the picture below to get there on time.
I gave this sale a 4/10. The long lines and high prices made this sale a bust.
What: Sam. Sample sale When: December 11-14, 2019 Where: 34 Little West 12th Street (between 9th Ave and Washington St., in the Meatpacking district)
