Sample Sally reports that the two-day sale at French designer Barbara Bui's Soho store is already pretty picked over: "When I stopped in late yesterday, the boutique on Wooster Street looked sparse. Some shelves were bare. A staffer told me that a lot of shoppers had already come in throughout the day and picked through the racks. As a result, many of the smaller sizes had been snapped up. A disappointment for me since I spotted a few knit tops ($100), pants ($150+) and tanks ($50) that I really liked." Sally also spotted some large handbags going for $600, smaller shoulder bags for $200, and a small selection of shoes going for about $250. [Sample Sally; Dealfeed]
