A reader who's a huge fan of sample sale organizers Shelly and Renee writes in urging everyone not to sleep on the Be & D sale, which started this morning. She writes: "Sale Goddesses Shelly & Renee are hosting this year’s Be & D sale, which was pretty much a ghost town at just before noon today. It may have been the weather or fear of increased prices that kept the crowds away, but there were deals to be had. If you were a size 37, there was a table of shoes for $50 or two for $75. Bag prices started at $100 for a couple of design samples and went up from there. A classic black studded small Garbo was $250. Lots of shooz and plenty of bag styles to choose from. And of course, it’s always a treat to see Shelly and Renee. Definitely worth a stop by." [Racked Inbox; Dealfeed]
