Hi,

As I am living in London and got the invitation, I've been to Mulberry sample sale this morning.
Even though I got there 10 mins before the opening time (10 am), there was already a long queue till outside the building. Guided to inside the building and queued from the lower ground floor up to the first floor (2nd floor)

Waited for about 30mins to get into the show room and it was literally W.A.R. (I also have been to Harrords summer sale twice but I think this one was worse)

Every Bayswater has gone already and only red leopard and pink colour were left. The staff said there won't be any more in stock.

However, luckily, no, very very luckily, I was able to grab Khaki colour Bayswater which I was very keen on wile I was in the queue for paying - the girl just in front of me gave up and left it and I got it just in 1 sec :yahoo:

I think the pictures I put here obviously shows how panic it was.
The last picture is showing the queue when I came out from the show room after 2 hours. It was still that long...

Good luck to everyone who is planning to visit there. But please keep in mind that there won't be any Bayswater more. :sick:

Thanks Chocky :smile:
I agree with you. I was so lucky. But just before, I found that there's no small key pad attached. Do you think without it is as it should be?

Wow thanks so much for those pictures. They are really worth a thousand words! the scrum, the woman with more bags on her arm than an octopus could carry ...

That's made up my mind for sure, I would seriously be having a panic attack in those conditions. I'll stay at home tomorrow (and save my pennies for other things).

PS Barbie does your Bays have feet? there were some "outlet specials" made which didn't have feet or the clochette (little dangly key holder thingie)

I think it might be ok actually. I know most outlet versions dont have the cloche, nor feet at the bottom of the bag. I guess that could be the same for sample versions. Does your bag have feet? Either way - its common to have bayswaters without it - so I would not worry. Just enjoy your bag. Do you have a pic of her to share? :smile:

Seems like people bought a lot, how were the prices?

How lucky that you got something you wanted after all! Did you get anything else? ;)

Thanks for the report, looked hectic, to say the least!

And I found that I do not have feet on the bottom either. But it is ok as I got the one for my new job - obviously in London, almost every girls are carrying Bays for work. hehe.
