Catch the Sample Sale Wave

February 8th, 2010

Do the names Lewis Cho, Walter and Rachel Leigh make your knees weak? Good news is that high quality NYC sample sales are now year round (where once they were seasonal). We can thank a difficult economy for this. These and other “scores” can be had THIS week on our Garment Center “Insider” shopping tourshttp://www.shopgotham.com/daily-new-york-shopping-tours.php

Shoe-In Sample Sale a big score

January 8th, 2010

Occasionally, its worth noting what we uncovered on a shopping tour. On last week’s Garment Center tour, we hit the bi-annual gargantuan Shoe-In Sample Sale. Even though it was Day 3, our 10 guests walked out with 25 pairs of boots/shoes. Timberland, Tory Burch and Michael Kors were the big scores  mostly in the $49 range. NYC Sample Sales rock! even in the winter. Come on aboard with us.  www.shopgotham.com/daily-new-york-shopping-

We like to give a heads-up about the Sample Sale “high” season. Typically, it commences mid-november, but our recession radar claims we can expect an early onslaught.    By early november, the designer for much less options will make your head swirl. As always, Shop Gotham will vet out the worthwhile from the junk-
