Holly:At lunch I stopped by the C. Wonder sample sale. After visiting the last few days of the sale last year, and walking out with a great gift item, I was excited to see what I would find this time around. I was so happy to see that the weather had deterred most from heading out to the sale. There was absolutely no line at 1:00pm and plenty of merchandise to be had. The sale was crowded with shoppers but not overwhelming.
In my opinion the best deal was on necklaces, which cost only $18 a piece. I spotted this gorgeous crystal necklace and this sparkly bib both in perfect condition. I definitely wish I would've had more time to shop this section! It seemed that they were restocking this section as well as a few others.
I walked out with some great monogrammed stationery (you can never have too much!) and an adorable cross-body bag that I seriously regretted not purchasing in maroon when it was available in store.
Since Holly had some luck at the sale on her lunch break, I decided to check it out for myself. I arrived at around 6:30pm and there was no line...it was horrible outside so that was probably why.
Considering how much stock there was, the sale was pretty well organized and fairly easy to navigate. The people working the sale were helpful; one even went downstairs to check if there were any more of an item I was interested in (sadly she returned empty handed). It is easy to be overwhelmed at a sale like this, but I restrained myself from frivolous spending.
I've been in the market for a new wallet since October, so at $25 picking one up was a no-brainer. I was initially drawn to a leopard patterned one, but decided the logo treatment wasn't for me. I decided on a chic white snakeskin print that will be perfect for summer. The only other purchase I made was a $15 ring box with a bow atop it - perfect for the birthday gift I plan on giving my goddaughter. There were racks of clothing still left when I checked out, and the housewares tables were being restocked constantly while I was shopping, so I will definitely pop into the sale at least once more before it ends.
There's still time to shop the sale - April 15th thru April 19th, 10am-8pm & April 20th, 10am-3pm at 260 Sample Sale - 260 Fifth Ave (Between 28th & 29th), New York
