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!

ShopDrop is Now a Community – App Update

Next Version of the ShopDrop App

An in-depth explanation of the next version of the sample sale app: easy comments, profile pics, access to blog from the app & deep linking.

Hello Dear ShopDrop Users,

Estee here. I’d like to introduce you to our Chief Technical Officer (CTO), Bill. He is a tech genius and thanks to him we just released the new version of the ShopDrop app. My goal this morning is to tell you about the new features, explain how they are used and then to move on with life. If you are experiencing any difficulty with the app, please email me at estee@shopdrop.app – we will fix your problem ASAP. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Until then, enjoy!

  1. Troubleshooting: If you updated your app and it keeps on crashing, try deleting it and downloading it again. That should reload all the data on the app in a visible manner.
  2. We added the SEARCH feature. That’s right, now you don’t have to scroll through the app endlessly to find your favorite sales: you can search for a specific one you like.
  3. Single file. Each sale has a tag now telling you when the sample sale will take place. Instead of separating by week, everything is organized in a single scroll.
  4. We are now a community: what that means is that you could see who else is going to the sale by seeing their icons pop up. So please upload your pics!
  5. Commenting is now easy – you can comment right by your icon – and tell everyone about the merchandise you are finding at the sale.
  6. Check in – now once you’re at a sale, you can actually check in – that way you become our trusted ambassador to report on the state of the merchandise at the sale
  7. Read our blog – now you’ll be able to read our blog straight from the site. It’s interesting, fun and easy.
  8. Deep linking: now we can link to the brand page in the app – so that you can look at full prices and styles before making a decision about the sample sale.
  9. Finally, in the profile section, you can now see which sales you RSVP’d to, so that you don’t have to scroll through all the sales from scratch to find the ones you love.

We are still far from done and are working on more features day by day, so if you have any ideas, definitely let me know!
