I managed to make it to the sale at the tail end of the day with just 10 minutes to spare I swung by the sale in a whirlwind. Maybe I didn’t catch everything but from what I did see, there were bargains aplenty for those in the market for shoes or a new handbag. Since photos weren’t really allowed at the sale, I snuck a few shots when the opportunity arose! For large bags I spotted plenty of studded and patent varieties for $100 a pop or 2 for $175. for smaller bags there were several boxes of assorted varieties for $50 a pop or 2 for $75. I spotted some cute metallic ruffled clutch varieties. For smaller accessories patent leather wristlets were $25 each or 2 for $40 while studded bracelets were $10 a pop. Some other small leather goods were $40 a pop and 2 for $75, studded coin purses were $50 and the prices topped out at $150 or 2 for $250 for the Garbo and Kan-Kan wallet.
When it comes to shoes there were plenty of options. I noticed some studded canvas espadrilles as I walked in for around $18 a pop. If you are a size 37 however, it’s your lucky day as samples were marked at $50 a pop or 2 for $75! If you are not a 37 though fret not as they have other styles including many a sexy studded pump in a full size range from 36-40. Shoes were most plentiful in between sizes 36-38. Unfortunately I have size 35 feet, or else I would definitely have left the sale with some shoes. For stock shoes prices hovered from $75 to $225 for knee high boots with most in the $125-175 category.
While I didn’t have a chance to check out the backroom at the sale where most of the stock purses were kept, according to Be and D’s tweets The Donnington bag down to $575 from $1325.
PS Watch out for the adorable curly haired white & beige puppy at the sale that will steal your heart!
