Shop talk: Upgrade your wardrobe and your home at one of these NYC sample sales and clearance sales from top designers and labels, where you can save up to 85% off original retail, including James Perse, Jenny Packham wedding wear, and Frette fine Italian linens for bed and bath.
Expect communal dressing rooms, and wear something with pockets for your valuables, since sale locations normally require you to check your handbag and tote bag.
No children or strollers are permitted at these designer sample sales, even the ones selling children’s clothing.
Unless otherwise specified, payment is by credit card or debit card only, no cash; no personal checks.
