There were NO Cartier and No Hermes. They were the only reason for me attending. Majority of the LV bags and wallets were damaged. They had water damage, scratches and discoloration. The Louboutin shoes were used, dirty and damaged. Overall there were plenty of items to choose from but majority of the items were "pre Loved". Other shoppers seemed content with their findings. There's no limit on the amount that can be purchased.
The line was crazy....around the corner. I waited for 3hours. It was def worth the wait however it was raining hard and the people inside wouldnt get out cuz it was raining. It was pretty annoying.

Selection of items was not good and most items were not in good condition. Disappointing.
The lines were wrapped around the corner, and this was at 11 am. Perhaps their should have been two locations.
It is amazing! Over 4,000 pieces of vintage luxury ahhh!

The Chicmi Team Say

There's a number of great New York sample sales to look out for this week, but after last week's New York Fashion Week chaos it seems almost quiet by comparison.

At the top of our New York sample sale hit list this week is definitely The Line - who's sample sale kicks off in SoHo, hosted by 260 Sample Sale on Greene Street. There'll be up to 75% off here, including womenswear, accessories and home.

Next up is Brit workwear favorites Karen Millen. Stock up on women's ready-to-wear, dresses and accessories at their New York sample sale, which kicks off on Thursday at clothingline for three days. Note that footwear and bags are very limited in quantity so get there early.

Also this week, you're not going to want to miss out on New York sample sales from Rituals (think gorgeous home fragrances and candles) or LXRandCo - where you'll find up to 90% off on some really major brands, with designer handbags, jewelry, watches, shoes, accessories and more on offer!

That's the highlights for this week. Next week is already looking more busy, with New York sample sales to look forward to from 3x1, Roberto Cavalli, Eileen Fisher, Kokun, Equinox activewear and more. And we're almost in sample sale season, so watch this page very carefully for new sample sale announcements!

About New York Sample Sales

New York's sample sale scene is second-to-none, making it the best city on earth to find a fashion bargain.

What is a sample sale?

The seasonal and constantly changing world of fashion means that brands often have items left over from past seasons, runway shows or the design and production process that they've collected in their offices or warehouses. Sample sales are sales events - often held in dedicated showrooms or event spaces - where you can buy these items at a significant discount on their normal retail value. Many sample sales discount between 70% to even 90% off.

Sample sales are often an experience in themselves - popular sales will frequently have queues to enter, you might have to store your coat or bag in a cloakroom, and you will often be competing with other shoppers to find and buy the items you want before others do. You you'll often find samples come in limited sizes, and you shouldn't expect the perks of proper luxury clothes shopping - many places don't have changing rooms and you're not likely to get a personal shopper!

Items bought in a sample sale are usually sold as is, and you won't be able to return them. Many sample sales accept cash and card, but check before you go, as some will be cash only or card only.

What brands have sample sales in New York?

New York has one of the worlds most vibrant and eclectic fashion communities, and the sample sales match! You'll find sales ranging from luxury brands and high street labels through to independent and emerging brands. The sample sales for luxury and high street brands are often quite practical affairs where you are there to grab a bargain as quickly as possible - but the independent and emerging events can be a great way to discover a brand's clothes, meet the designers, and sometimes enjoy entertainment or drinks alongside the sales.

Along with sample sales organised by the brands themselves, there's also a rich calendar of sample sales organised by third parties or collectives. For example Shelly & Renee organise New York sample sales on behalf of many luxury brands and European labels, and companies like Soiffer Haskin and Clothingline host sample sales in their spaces all year round as well.

When is New York's sample sale season?

Because the fashion scene in NYC is so big, you'll find sample sales all year round - but the most common periods, or "sample sale seasons", are when the fashion seasons come to an end. Spring Summer sample sales often happen between April to June, and Autumn Winter sample sales happen October to December. These are the times that you really want to keep an eye on the sample sale calendar, and make sure you don't miss your favourite brands!
