2 Sample Sales I have known and not loved.

Just wanted to check in with you guys and tell you about the sample sales going on in NYC this week.

I stopped by the Frette sale, and queen sheet sets or duvet covers were going for $299. Still pretty steep but much better than $1250 which was the original tag.
There were also robes, napkins, and separate top and bottom sheets and shams for sale.

I tried to make a set out of the single sheets since they were cheaper ($75 top and $45 bottom and $20 per pillowcase) but it was hard. I ended up being able to put something together but the line to check out was SO LONG and the people running the sale were SO RUDE that I just left.
I asked if there were any of the cheaper sets ($145) available still and the woman was like "No. You should have signed up for the mailing list."
Btw, I am on the mailing list. That is how I found out about it in the first place.
But I am thinking of taking myself off it because they were truly obnoxious.
I don't recommend this sale.

I also went to the DKNY Sample sale taking place now on 5th ave btw 28 and 29th st. It had nothing special or interesting. Dresses were $85, tops and tees were $30, and pants were $45 I think.
They had shoes and boots but they were all ugly and all size 8.5 it seemed.
There were a few crossbody bags but they looked cheap to me.
I also do not recommend this sale.

So what is next to look forward to?
For me, it's the Surface to Air sale:
Deal: Up to 80% off women's, men's, and children's clothing and accessories.
When/Where: Thursday, March 14 through Sunday, March 17. Thurs 10am—8pm, Fri 10am—7pm, Sun 10am—5pm. 260 Fifth Ave between 28th and 29th Sts (no phone).
