We're in Red Hook, we're in SoHo, we're all over the map today!
We not so much returned from the M Z Wallace sample sale as survived it. We arrived at 11:15 this morning, and there was a line about 20 people long. Women were exiting with garbage bags full of purchases. After about a 20 minute wait, we made our way inside. It was in full sample sale swing with lots of grabbing and looting. We are disappointed to report that there were not many of their leather bags we covet, but there were a lot of cute canvas and cotton bags. Costs range from $30-100. The line has since dissipated, and if you are interested in a cute summer tote or carry-all, you should stop by during their extended hours today and tomorrow.
