A Tale Of Sale

Shop Bop had a MAJOR warehouse sale over the weekend at the Madison Concourse Hotel. Only 50 people were allowed in the shopping area at a time. One in, one out. Cash only.
12:24 PM Friday: Twenty-four minutes into the sale the line was wrapped around the block, and at least a two hour wait. This lasted all day. I didn’t wait.
8:00 AM Saturday: I decide to pop by right before work thinking it was too early for even the most desperate shoppers, but no…one hour wait. By 10:30, the line was gone. Alas, I was at work till four.
3:00 PM Sunday: I finally get there. There wasn’t a wait, but I was left with only discarded items. With only one hour left, I burrowed against the clock through rejected mounds of size 25 jeans. With twenty minutes to go, I take a pile of pieces worth trying on to the dressing room.
In the end, I came away with a (completely impractical) pair of white Derek Lam lace-up booties and a lace dress from Mint for $100. Despite the line waiting, pile rummaging and crowd pushing, you’ve gotta love a sale.
