  1. Hi everyone,
    I will be visiting L.A. this weekend (7/24 - 7/26) and am hoping to attend some sample sales... are there any going on?

    Please respond if you know of any. Thanks in advance!
     
  2. Also Daily candy
     
  3. Thanks everyone! Anything else going on? Was hoping for a Rachel Pally, Mike & Chris, Rock & Republic, etc. sale..
     
  4. ^^Those usually happen in June and then again around November-December, if you're ever planning another trip to LA. There's definitely two sample sale "seasons" for the big brands. Around this time, you're more likely to find ones put on by companies or stores that have a mix of brands (although they might carry the brands you want too). HTH!

    Rachel Pally has her sales in April and August. R&R typically has his sales in May/June and November. The L.A. showrooms have their sample sales the last Friday of every month. There are tons of sales at the Mart, Cooper Building & New Mart NOT LISTED anywhere. I've stumbled on the following sales: Joes Jeans, People's Liberation Jeans, William Rast Jeans, Isabella Fiore, Solas Handbags, Kale Handbags, Juicy Couture, AG Jeans, Taverniti So Jeans, etc, etc.

    Here's the info for the New Mart:

    Sample Sales at The New Mart

    Sample sales are held at The New Mart Building on the last Friday of each month. This is the only time that we are open to the public. During sample sales, some showrooms will sell their samples at discounted prices, and accept cash ONLY. Each showroom keeps its own hours, which are approximately 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM.

    The New Mart is located at 127 East Ninth Street, Los Angeles, California 90015, between Main and Los Angeles Streets. Parking is located on Main Street and Ninth. Entrances to our parking lot are located on both Main Street and Ninth Street.

  6. How are the prices?
     
  7. Haute Okole~
    Thanks for the info! Am sad that there are none this weekend (when I'll be there). But will definitely keep it in mind for the future.

    Thanks again.
     
  8. Generally, the prices in the showrooms are GREAT! William Rast, People's Lib jeans are typically $50+. Tarina Tarantino from $1.25 to $30.00. However Juicy, Frankie B and Joes Jeans are still disappointingly high, only 30-50% off retail. No returns, cash only, and sometimes there is a line.
     
  9. Wow! I'm drooling over Betsey Johnson too.

    Are those other sales usually on each month as well? Or were they "one-offs"?
     
  10. Betsey Johnson's showroom always participates in the monthly sample sale. That is a fun showroom, some dresses and purses, but not one of the cheaper showrooms.
