You can see our full sample sale calendar over here. On the product scroll bar, below, is an assortment of items that can be found online for a similar discount as the mentioned sample sales mentioned.
Edie Parker's sample sale will take place on Thursday, in midtown, at the Bryant Park Hotel. The sale will consist of samples, past season's stock and vintage pieces. Bags will be priced from $400 to $500. At the November sample sale, prices started at just $200 and charms were $50. We suspect there will be discounts the second day if these higher prices mean less sales. During past sales, shoppers were also given a bit of an extra discount when buying multiple bags.
A few blocks South, the Ippolita sale will start at Soiffer Haskin. Just in time for Mother's Day, expect to find most items discounted 65% off retail and a few, less desirable pieces, reduced 75% to 90% off. Last season, there was a markdown after the first day and then another reduction for the last day. We suggest waiting for the last day of the sale unless you're looking for a particular item.
If you're looking to get out of the city this weekend you can head towards Edison, NJ for the Baccarat sample sale. We know Edison isn't an exotic location but the trip can yield quite an amount of luxurious items. Expect to find stemware, barware, vases, decorative pieces, gifts and a large selection of jewelry all priced up to 80% off. Once you're done shopping head back home and use your new barware to pour a very exotic drink. Pure vacation luxury.
