A deal-crazy reader sends word from not one, but two sample sales. About Libertine: "Went there during their last sale and it was awesome. Today I got there around 11:15am and there was a handful of people but the sale was not as good as last time. Wasn't even close. A lot of big sizes for men and funky sizes for women. Not worth it, especially in this rain. On the Me&Ro sale: "Me&Ro sale is definitely worth it, though expect a to wait to enter. They kept on bringing out stuff as the line to get in kept getting longer. We had to wait 20 minutes when we got there 15 minutes after the sale started. There were 10 people ahead of us and women walking out with a lot of stuff. There's no recession when women go look at jewelry!" [Racked Inbox]
