OK, I'm very naive about the whole sample sale thing. I live in NE Ohio and have never been to one, nor do I know much about them other than you can get super deals! Here's my question, how far in advance do you find out there's going to be a sample sale? I'm planning to take my mother to NY in the fall, and yes, I would plan the trip around a sale! Any help/info. anyone could give me would be much appreciated!
