Sample Sales

Inauspicious sample sale return policies (read: none) do not bode well for gift purchasing. shopping-bag.gif Without impeccable knowledge of Aunt Lily's taste and sweater size, even 70% off a TSE cashmere is just not worth the risk. If her arms are a bit too pudgy to squeeze into the skinny sleeves, the luscious gift will only induce frustration.

Sample sales are seductive. But unfortunately around this time of the year most of us are a little low on funds. Big spending ought to be practiced only when the big purchase is a gift for someone else. However, for those willing to dip into savings, max out the Amex or risk the unexchangable gift, Daily Candy has thoughtfully provided us with a list of fabulous sample sales. I will definitely be making a few sheepish appearances this week.
