What you'll do

NYC is one of the fashion capitals of the world. Every big designer opens up shop here or has a showroom...so then there's those samples...what happens to them?

They get sold. At 75% off. or MORE.

Imagine your favorite designers and wholesale prices. And that's why NYC women are so well dressed. It's a not-so-secret secret. So everyday is a different sale going on. Whether it's jewelry, children's clothing, shoes or bag, Sample Sale Savants will make sure to take you to the ones that you are most interested in. And the biggest thing is we skip the line since we're insiders. You'll also get shown the wholesale market, secret stores and special vintage shops where NYC shopping mavens and stylists go to for that perfect look.

We're pros at styling so you'll leave our experience with a fully styled designer look but at half the cost.

Did we mention we SKIP THE LINE!!??

We will usually visit 2 different sales, one per hour. If you love it, Jess or Kristina will stay there with you and the other stylist with take the others to the next sale. Check out www.samplesalesavants.com
Other things to note
Wear comfortable shoes. Wear leggings & a form fitting tank top. We'll be going to different showrooms which don't have private changing rooms.

This was an incredible experience! I lucked out with a one-on-one opportunity. Jessica is amazing: her knowledge of the industry and passion shone throughout. I also appreciated how down-to-earth she is as a person. Jessica quickly got to know my style and I ended up with some pieces that are a thrill and will last me a lifetime. The structure was also terrific: we started in the higher end place (Valentino!!!) and managed to go to three other sales. I would enthusiastically recommend this experience.

Jessica was vibrant, chic, and so kind. Me and my mother navigated the waters of sample sale shopping in New York with her going to different showrooms. I am from New York as well and know some things about sample sales, but I could not have achieved such success without Jessica! I highly recommend this experience and will be making appointments with Jessica in the future. I included my mom's favorite purchase, Lanvin shoes and mine, Valentino shoes. I had scheduled this experience and gifted it to my mom for Mother's Day. We had such a blast and the perfect girls day together – thank you, thank you Jessica!

Don’t go shopping on your own in NYC; just go with Jessica! She is a stylist with insider knowledge on where to shop for the best at discount prices. We went to Valentino and Lanvin samples - we bought iconic items at amazing prices. She was helpful throughout and really made efforts beforehand to know your size and taste. There was no pressure and her great eye made sure you bought the best for you. Thanks Jessica for true NYC fun!

This is a must-do if you come to New York and you love fashion. Jessica is really knowledgeable and passionate in her work, and she’s so friendly that you’d feel like you are just out shopping with an old friend. Would defiantly recommend her!!

No better way to shop! Luxe finds without the hassle and lines, with a thoughtful and artful pre-selection done by Jessica who was wonderfully attentive from beginning to end. I love getting a steal but don’t have the time or patience for lines and crowds. And although there are deals online, they cannot compare to the exceptional discounts you get at NYC sample sales! Highly recommended!
