Love Sample Sales? Report on Them for Racked NY!

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Sample Sale Season is about to swing into full gear, and we're looking for a few additional writers to report from the trenches. The ideal candidate has a strong love for fashion and shopping, doesn't mind spending an hour or so waiting in line, and can sneakily snap a few iPhone photos of the goods, even when it's forbidden.

Responsibilities will include writing in-depth reviews for both sample sale previews and opening day, and occasionally blogging from the line. Overall, we're looking for someone who knows the scene, is a quick and concise writer, and is able to critically answer the most important question: Is it worth skipping your lunch break to attend this sale? If interested, send an email to No resumes please, but if you have a personal blog, Twitter, or Tumblr, feel free to send that over.
