Backpack Bonanza at the Herschel sample sale

Herschel brand sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

As a loyal fan of the Herschel brand, I was over the moon ecstatic to be able to cover the Herschel sample sale 2018! The sample sale was run by 260 sample sales in Soho. After watching the 260 Instagram story, I was expecting the line to be around the block and would take almost an hour to get in. Thankfully that wasn’t the case and I only needed to wait around 5 minutes. The Herschel sale had raincoats, fleeces, luggage, wallets, hats, fanny packs, Ipad cases, and of course, their signature backpacks. As someone who has had the same Herschel backpack for the past 6 years without any signs of wear or tear, I was excited to see the options. There were about five different styles for the larger size backpacks, with an emphasis on darker colors. The sale had many different sizes of backpacks, but they were all grouped together and it was hard to differentiate between sizes. What was surprising was the pricing of the backpacks. The larger backpacks cost the same as the mini-backpacks, which made the mini bags not worth the $34.99.

We rated the Herschel sample sale a 7 out of 10 because of the well-stocked inventory. Let us know what you thought about the sale in the comments below!

Camilla Beachwear Sample Sale Review

camilla sample sale nyc

Call us stupid, uneducated whatever – but we never heard of the Camilla brand until it was announced that the brand would have a sample sale. We checked out the site, the merchandise and prices and frankly, were not too impressed. The prices were still high. I mean, $220 for a short dress at a sample sale for a brand we never heard of? Come on! The prices at Carolina Herrera were better than that.

Additionally, the beginning of Fall is probably not the time we all want to be  buying bathing suits. I am already scouting stores and the web for yummy sweaters and funky boots. So unless you’re an all-around swimmer with never-ending pockets, this one is a no-go.

Indoors at the Outdoor Voices Sample Sale

outdoor voices sample sale ny

For the athleisure brand Outdoor Voices, the sample sale was rockin’! It’s the first line we’ve seen at  260 sale since the beginning of the Summer. And we think that the reason for that is the phenomenally good prices. Most things are selling for $20, and leggings are going for $30. Compared to the $60-$80 price tags leggings had at other sample sales this year, we were happy.

If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the last few days of August, definitely check the Outdoor Voices sample sale out! Photos and prices below. Enjoy!

One of a Kind Pieces at the JSong Vintage Archive sale

JSong Vintage Archive sale

By Melanie Capruso

The JSong Vintage Archive sample sale featured a mixture of ready-to-wear and one-of-a-kind pieces. The sample sale was housed in their NYC HQ in the middle of the garment district. The inventory was arranged on racks by price, which made it easy shop. The detailing on the clothes were spectacular and not like anything else I’ve seen sold in other stores. The pieces were made with a fabulous attention to detail! As the majority of the pieces were samples, the sizes were smaller and there were only one or two pieces by style. What really made the JSong Vintage Archive sale stand out was the attentive staff. From the minute I walked in they were ready to help me with anything I needed!

We gave the JSong Vintage Archive sale a 6 out of 10 due to beautiful inventory and the incredible staff. Make sure to check out this sale before it ends!

Back to School Fashions with Petit Bateau

Petit Bateau sample sale

By Melanie Capruso

The Petit Bateau sample sale is coming at the perfect time to stop the end-of-summer blues, and get us excited for fall! Petit Bateau is a high quality French clothing brand for children. They’re known for their colorful and cozy clothing that both parents and kids adore. Their sale features both late summer and fall pieces for children from infants to 12 years old. The selection is incredible with everything from lightweights tees to chunky knits.

The only disappointment was the price. Petit Bateau is an expensive brand retailing for $70-$150, which is a steep price for clothes children will out grow. The Petit Bateau sample sale offers around 50%-60% off per item. BUT, we were told the prices will drop and the sale will b extended into next week.
