A contented shopper reports back from the Foley + Corinna sale on the Lower East Side: "Just came back from this sale and it was great! I am a VETERAN sample saler and was able to score a sample mid-city tote in black leather and denim for $75 BUX and a beige one!! Also they accept credit cards AND they are constantly restocking from large boxes under the tables. Best sample sale I have been to in a LONG time. No one pushing or shoving or HOARDING like other more 'POSH' designer sales. The women shopping were all nice very well manered. One even showed me a hole in a sample bag I was going to buy while I was on line." [Racked Comments]
