Do you love good clothes? New York City sample sales provide the most
beautiful fashions at unbeatable prices! They offer the opportunity to buy top designer brands at up to 75% off retail.
Here are some tips to make your shopping at these sales as successful and enjoyable as possible:
1. Wear comfortable shoes.
2. Bring cash. Many don’t accept credit cards or checks.
3. Go early, before the good stuff is sold.
4. Many sample sales showrooms don’t have standard changing rooms. As a result, you’ll have to try on articles in front of a lot of strangers. So wear underwear or undergarments that you feel comfortable being seen in.
