Montblanc Friends & Family Sale

Montblanc's "private" friends and family sale is always a great place to pick up sophisticated gifts without breaking the bank. 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 Thursday, April 28. Last time we attended the sale on the second day and the inventory was a bit depleted. This season, that shouldn't be a problem because purchases are being limited. Each shopper can only buy two watches, five writing instruments, five pieces of jewelry and five pieces of leather. That should be more than enough for shoppers like you and me but enough limits to keep the reselling hoarders at bay.

Thurs. 8:30am am to 5:30pm, Fri. 8:30am to 4:30pm

I have been going to this sale for a few years now and this one was VERY dissapointing! Not much selection and it took forever to get in. Took me close to 2 hours! They should have kept it at the Roosevelt hotel as they seemed to be able to let more ppl into the room.
