Sample Sale Report: Cesare Paciotti

Wasn't sure that I would make it to this sale as the hours and location sort of conflict with my job, but I was able to finish up a bit early so I ran there :)

Racked had posted prices yesterday morning and I was a bit interested to see what I could find:
Women's samples: flats $100, heels $120, boots $250, Swarovski sandals $130, past-season styles $30. Men's samples: all $120, past-season styles $50. Bags $80 to $500

So I had about 7 minutes before the sale closed for the day, but there wasn't all too much left to see and there were only 2 other people making for easy browsing. My hopes were to find a pair of last season's $30 shoes were quickly dashed as I did not see single pair left.

If you are a size 35, this sale is a definite pass as there was not a single shoe to be had.

The best selection was for 39 and 40 in women with whole tables still laden with sample merch for each size. However, if you are a 37 or 38 there is not much left, only a tiny shared a table with only about 5 or 6 pairs of shoes left!

If not looking for samples but current season merch, there are a number of strappy black leather/patent sandals in various sizes 36 to 41 for 60% Off. These shoes seemed to retail for around $575, so that would make it about $230 a pair.

As for the mens section, they had only 5 pairs of shoes left from last season at $50, I didn't catch the size.

There was also a small assortment of sample shoes for $120 in mostly size 41.

Again, like the ladies, they had a small assortment of merch from the current season of leather & patent python loafers for 60% Off. These came in sizes 36.5 to 41 but surprisingly mostly smaller sizes 37-38.5!

So if you are a size 39 or 40 woman or a size 41 man run! But otherwise, no rush necessary. Remember it's CASH ONLY!
