The C. Wonder sample sale runs through this Sunday, and if your mom and/or dog is available, be sure to bring them along—there's tons of merchandise with extra markdowns since the sale started for both demographics.
The space is still supremely stocked with products that appear to be in great shape. The best bargains are in the accessories department with phone covers for $4, picture frames for $15, mugs and bowls for $4, and monogrammed, impress-your-guests napkins for $2. Large bags, of which there are a lot (and in shockingly bright colors) are still $40, while wallets, clutches, and cosmetic cases are $20.
Clothing has been marked down an additional 25%-50% off, with tops, bottoms, and non-cashmere sweaters going for $35, vests, cashmere, and jackets for $65, and imitation fur pieces and parkas for $85. Head towards the back of the space for shoes, where flats—mostly of the ballet variety—are $40, while heels and boots are $60.
The most fun at the C. Wonder sample sale is the $10 dog-ccessories section : Collars and leashes come in metallic, rhinestone, and leopard-print iterations, and cold-weather vests are designed solely for the preppiest of pups.
If you're debating whether to make the trek to 260 Fifth Avenue this weekend, think of it this way: While you may not find a ton of clothing that you'd wear, you'll be getting a great head start on your holiday gift shopping. See the Dealfeed below for complete sale times.
