I went to the sale yesterday, pricing was not bad. Jewelry ranged from 5 dollars to 20 dollars. Salespeople were friendly and helpful.
Went Friday, good amount of stock available (mostly size S) with great prices. No line to get in. Lots of tops, some dresses, jeans. Did not see many PJs or any accessories. Shoes limited sizing only. Worth checking out!
If you are in need of a new pair of should check out this sale...prices are awesome! I went there to get a pair of Feit boots and got the last pair in my size!
Sale was neat and organized and staff was very helpful!
Prices are "ok" BUT I believe will get better on the LAST day as they still have ALOT of merchandise!
I just sent my twin for me and they had some of their winter 2018 collection there! I scored the faux fur fold over winter 2018 tote, another faux fur bag and a clear backpack for $25! They also threw in some free gifts! Def go to this sale as this brand retails at $130-500 normally!
Went this morning, worth going by and checking out. If you are in need of active wear, they have stock items for all sizes (bras and leggings, as well as of few jackets). As of this morning, plenty of jewelry (I picked up a ring for $71), and bags were plentiful. Samples (not much left) were dwindling quickly, but are reasonably priced. There was no line.

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!
