Shopping in this city is fun, but it can be so expensive! I've spent a few years getting to know the best sample sales in the city and staying updated on where designer items can be found at great prices. I'd be happy to take you around to sales that occur during your stay in the city. Sample sales are on a rotating schedule, but I stay on top of the calendars and can show you what's happening while you're in town. INFO: I wont be taking you to 5th ave, Bergdorf's or to "touristy" stores. Sample garments are an example for the designer to approve prior to production. They have been worn once or twice by a model for a photoshoot (in some cases not worn at all) and then are sent off to sample sales. In most cases, items have no signs of wear and are like new. Sample sales are held in plain shops where you may have to dig through the clothing racks to find something great, kind of like a treasure hunt. Many places have communal try-on rooms. Let me take you on a shopping adventure!
