About NYC Sample Sales

In Manhattan, we have access to huge discounts on designer clothing, handbags, shoes, cosmetics and home decor. We find out about the NYC Sample Sale listings from a variety of newspapers, magazines, flyers, email lists, Facebook groups, secret groups and most importantly, friends and family!

You won’t find information about New York Sample Sales 2017 in any printed tour guide, because it is almost all by word of mouth and rarely publicized more than a few days in advance. Sometimes, like the Manolo Blahnik press sale, these sales are also very hush, hush!

What exactly is a New York City Sample Sale?

It is not just samples or sample sizes, usually it’s neither of those. Most often, NYC sample sales are the way designers sell off their first quality merchandise from the prior season. For example, a shoe sample sale in November is selling the prior Spring/Summer collection and one in May is selling the Fall/Winter collection. The sales are often held in warehouse spaces or hotel conference centers. Many times a designer will rent a commercial space that is temporarily vacant as the prior tenant has left and the new one is not in yet.

NYC Sample Sale

Following are the top NYC Sample Sale picks sourced from NY Magazine, Tasting Table, Daily Candy, NY Times, Time Out NY, Facebook groups and Sample Sale emails.

NYC Insider Tip – When is your favorite sale?

Note the timing of prior year sample sales. Often, they are held the same times every year, so if you are planning a trip to New York City, be on the lookout for huge discounts on your favorite brands.

To search for your favorite brand on this page, click “Ctrl + F” and type the brand name or review the calendar below.

Sample sales are generally not announced more than a few days in advance, but they will be listed here as soon as I know!

Feel free to follow NYC Insider Guide for updates on your favorite designers or bookmark this page and check back often.
