Sample Sale Report: Bonpoint Childrenswear
While I don't usually check out childrenswear sample sales, I just happened to be in the same building as the Bonpoint sample sale, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to pop by fo a quick look around. Adorable childrenswear in sizes 3 months to 10 year old boys and 12 year old girls could be seen throughout row on row of well organized rolling racks and perfectly folded tables of luxe cashmere onesies, sweaters and other cute clothing all marked at about 60% off retail.
Prices at the sale were not exactly intuitive by product category, you really had to look at the tags on each item and compare it to the list on the wall to know what price you were getting for each item. There was also a small selection of children's shoes in a variety of sizes. I happened to notice quite a few size 32 shoes.
Adorable little velveteen blazers, puffers (marked down to $165) and faux fur jackets could be seen on rolling racks lining the walls.
Cashmere socks which were once $100 are now $40 a pair while cotton socks are now $8 a pair. Cardigans are around $54 while this printed onesie is now $46.
Button down shirt is $56, while this dress is now $66 and the adorable snuggle suit is $110. While prices aren't exactly low for a sample sale, especially considering it is for children, the quality is definitely high. I saw plenty of stylish moms cruising through the sale to snag some goods. Funnily enough despite it being a childrenswear sale, strollers are forbidden. Even if you don't have kids, a good place to pick up gifts for all the kids or kids to be in your life.
