Sample sales are the perfect opportunity to snag fashionable apparel, shoes and accessories for a fraction of the price! And in NYC, there are sample sales ALL. THE. TIME. Seriously—every day there is somewhere to shop for great deals. Keep yourself in the loop of NYC sample sales with the help of these insider websites and smartphone app: 

The Stylish City – Celebrating its 10th year online, The Stylish City aims to help people be better at shopping, no matter what their budget. This user-friendly site has specific pages for today’s samples sales, this week’s sample sales and next week’s sample sales. The lists are updated daily and offer time and location for the sales, as well as information about the brands hosting the sales.

Chicmi (New York) – This database of all-things-fashion (brands, events, sales, exhibitions, etc…) is as educational as it is fun to browse. There are sections with New York Fashion Trend statistics and online fashion sales. I appreciate how they separate the in-store sales into three major categories: sample sales, vintage sales and bridal sales.

260 Sample Sale – This website promotes the sample sales it holds in its event spaces—260 Fifth Ave., 150 Greene St. and 43 Wooster St. If you join the site’s mailing list, you’ll receive information to their public and private sample sale events. The upcoming sales page keeps you up-to-date on what to expect next at these hot spots.

Sample Sally – I chuckle every time I see this website’s tagline that they’re “elbowing our way thru sales so you don’t have to.” Sample Sally tracks sample sales, as well as other notable sales on its calendar. There are also posts about the sale that gives you a more in-depth peek at what you may find when you’re shopping, as well as comments sections where you can ask questions and share your own experiences.

For on-the-go sample sale shoppers with access to the App Store, you’ll want to download ShopDrop. It’s a free app that will keep you up-to-date on NYC sample sales—as well as sample sales in Los Angeles, London and Paris.

Sample sale shopping is both a marathon and a race. Stay hydrated and happy shopping!
