JCP Designer Charity Sale

Every year, non-profit JCP hosts an amazing fashion sale that is reminiscent of shopping a local consignment store in the 1990s. The merchandise is amazing and prices are, would you believe, reasonable!


This season the sale will begin on Sunday, November 2 and run for four days. We got a sneak peak into some of the primo items. The extensive list includes studded Christian Louboutin peep-toe platforms $400, instead of $1,295. A Goyard red tote is now $400 from $1,300 and a Max Mara coat with fur collar is now $375 from $1,800. Other designers include Alexander McQueen, Acne, Ferragamo and YSL among many others.

You can point your courser right here to see the products on the organization's instagram account. One word of wisdom: JCP can be a bit tricky about not putting out all the best merchandise on the first day. So this might be a sale you should consider seriously stalking if you're looking to find fashion gold.

JCP Fashion Sale
Sunday, November 2 through Wednesday, November 5
12pm to 8pm daily
102 Franklin Street, Tribeca

Is that like second hand designer sale?

Yes it's second hand and I've never seen the sale very crowded.

Sale started at noon but they told me people were lining up at 10:30am. They are only letting in 10 people at at time because the space is so small! And I just left the line now and the first 10 people still hadnt left either! The line is about 50 people long and its not moving at all. Not sure its worth it or not. They said there is tons of good stuff, but with no time limit and only 10 people at at time, it doesnt sound well managed to me! Hope it clears up later in the week.

That sounds really annoying. Perhaps try back mid-week??? I wouldn't want to wait either.

I got there at 12 and didn't get in till like 1:30. All the good stuff (Loubs, moncler jacket, goyard tote) was gone. Probably bought by the first batch of 10. The rest of the stuff was typical consignment store stuff at ok prices. There was a new pink suede acne jacket for $800 down from whatever. There was an Oscar de la renta necklace for $295. A small Fendi Saleria satchel for $450. These aren't really steals to me. Better deals on eBay. I also overheard one of the sales girls saying that the good shoes, coats and bags were all put out today. The stuff that will be put out in the next few days is just going to be more clothes.

Sounds like stay at home and drink hot tea would be much better idea in this crazy weather. LOL

Great update Jessie! Agree with you on finding better deals elsewhere!

Okay so i went to this sale...i was about halfway in the line and definitely did have to wait. The space is small which is def why there was a wait...with more than what they were letting in it would have been a total mess to shop.

I got pretty awesome stuff - a pair of red louboutins and manolos...I also got a max mara coat and this chanel dress i have been drooling over. The prices actually were really amazing. i would have paid TRIPLE had I have bought it in the store. The person at the register told me more stuff comes out everyday and that if i come back on the last day, they mark stuff down to sell.

I think this sale is worth the wait!

Total waste of time. Poorly organized, high prices and not so great selection. Better off going to INA or another Hugh end consignment shop.

Lila Delilah said...

Im sorry that the sale was a bummer to so many people. Thank you so much for your insight. I will be sure to warn shoppers if we end up posting about it again next year.

So I actually went back last night (I live a block away so its pretty easy!) and they did have a nice selection of clothes for a range of prices. Some things direct from stores like Blue and Cream and Steven Allen that were marked down and then also an additional 20% off. High-end designer duds were hit or miss as everything was one of a kind but some of the pieces were beautiful! Accessories weren't great, but they may have been picked over from the morning. The girls working there were super nice and depending on the item and the consigner, there was additional wiggle room on prices for the high-end stuff.
