When I've been in the past, they have these large cardboard boxes with irregulars and true samples that generally run around $40-$75. Those are the best deals. I usually can't even find the irregularity.
Just checked out the Lauren Merkin sample sale and there were lots of bags available. No crowds, but prices were similar to their online sale so nothing to rave about. The best deals were the bargain boxes starting at $15.
Anyone know if they lower the prices on the last day of the sale?
I picked up a Louise mauve/brown from the $25 bin and a card holder for $5. The $15 bin isn't really worth it because it's the pleather looking coin purse clutches. $25 bin was limited in selection...decent pickings in the $60+ bins but can't remember the exact model names available since I feel like you can get a better deal from NM when they have special sales.
