I actually ended up going to the sale so wanted to supplement Joanne's feedback. I was looking for a few specific pairs of their shoes that they didn't have at the sale, so left empty handed. Agree with her review overall - they had a lot of styles but most were only in a couple of sizes, and I honestly believe that if you wait during sale season or beyond, you can get them cheaper on sale or on resale sites (for example, I have already found boots I was checking out for $200 in my size brand new on Poshmark so don't feel like I am missed out not buying anything at the sale itself). Have a few pics so you can check out some of the styles!
Thank you for this! This was really helpful. I was going to stop by but it's really out of the way so you saved me a trip!
The sale isn’t worth the trip for a few reasons. The most notable is the unfriendliness and rudeness of the staff, who made me and my friend super uncomfortable. The lady in the shoe department was rude, huffy, and clearly disinterested in helping answer questions. She was completely disinterested in and unwilling to help even if she saw you struggling with sizes. She spent the entire time angrily “fixing” an already orderly area, while answering questions in monosyllables without eye contact and complaining about previous shoppers. “Are all shoes out?” “Yep”. The WiFi was down, so it took like ten minutes of tries before I decided to just pay in cash. No friendliness, no helping with styles or sizes, when I asked another staff person a question I was harshly redirected to the rude woman. Most styles only have one or two sizes per style so don’t expect much size, color, and style assortment. Price list below. Made a purchase, but wouldn’t go back. They have shoes, clothing, bags, and a few candles. Shoe prices posted below.
Hi Joanne, sorry to hear you had a bad experience, I'm afraid we're a very small and overworked team who work 7 days a week- literally. And we were in the space finishing set up well into the wee hours last night, so it's certainly possible we weren't our usual bright shiny selves today. Thanks for stopping by, and we genuinely hope you enjoy your purchase.
Thanks for your honest review Joanne. Even though my office is a few blocks away, I won't waste time.
Hi! I’ve been in touch with Kari Sigerson for the sale and she was extremely pleasant!!! If it’s a small team try to give them a break. They might have dealt with someone weird before you and it’s hard to let that roll off when you’re tired. I’m hoping to make it to the sale today!!! ☺️
