Montblanc Friends & Family Sale

Montblanc's "private" friends and family sale is always a great place to pick up stately gifts without spending a mint. This sale is usually a reader favorite. You can always count on legitimately good deals, like $600 fountain pens selling for $150 or $1,000 leather bags marked down to $250.



The sale is only two days and starts Monday. There aren't usually any lines, the sale is well organized and the staff is helpful. See, that's a sale we can dig.

Monday 8:30 am to 5:30pm, Tuesday 8:30 to 4:30pm

Do I need a invitation?

No invite needed. I went on Monday during the lunch rush hour and waited for about 10 minutes in line. I got a fountain pen for $160 and this gorgeous briefcase (http://images.montblanc.com/products/images/35792_s.png) for $285.

Saw ladies bags and sunglasses starting at about $120. Cufflinks around $70.

Everything is pretty much 75% off. As of this afternoon, there were only about a dozen watches left.

Sale was great. I got the boheme citrine jeweled fountain pen for 150. It retails for 1850!

Saw some men's watches for around $700, but didn't look that closely.

There was a 10 min wait at 8:45 this morning. (First sample sale I've been to where men outnumbered women!) Mostly fountain pens left -- the rollerballs and ballpoints that are still there are mostly on the pricey side (think $2-3000 retail, $5-800 sale). Men's cufflinks ($70-125) are going quickly, as are men's watches. There were two ladies watches left, both in the $1000+ range. Some jewelry left, including a couple leather strap bracelets and a bunch of heart necklaces for $120.
