Well, fellow Kooba junkies, it appears that us West Coasties are still going to envy the East Coasties 'cuz.... this wasn't much of a sample sale compared to those in N.Y. The sale consisted of a few particular styles of bags, which were on sale for approximately 50% off retail. The woman who assisted me said to divide the price on the Kooba tag by 2.2. The sale consisted of the following bags: Annie - all colors Julia - Python and black Nicole - White Paige- every color Kelsey - all colors, no suede McKenzie- all colors Josie - older style, in Toast Cassandra- the darker color of the large disco ball Maria - only one, in camel suede It appeared they had less than 10 boxes of stock, and some of those had maybe one or two bags in them. I got there around 9:30 and there was not another soul there shopping. The staff didn't appear to know the names of the bags, so I assume they were just liquidating a limited stock of a the above styles. ~sigh~ It was cash only, and I decided to grab the Maria (even though I think she's too small for me and sold my black one a while back) because she was just too gorgeous and the price was less than what had been on the Kooba sale page. I then had to go back downstairs to get cash. I actually ended up paying less than 50% percent as the total came to $202 (which I guess is retail divided by 2.4, actually). Then a woman came out with a price list and confirmed it was to be $202. Definitely a good deal on a new Maria. So end the tale of the L.A. Kooba sale.
