The Marni sample sale at Soiffer Haskin opens this morning at 10am. Did the piles of snow deter anyone from lining up? Nope. But so far, the line is small. Our reporter on the scene writes that as of 9am, only about twenty people were lined up, but more came in steadily.
She writes: "I saw the red stanchions across the street ready to go, so it looks like they're prepared for more people than they can hold inside. The first person here arrived at 8am." And from what we hear, it's a pretty good sale.
Our reporter explains: "The room is totally stuffed. There's everything from shoes to lingerie to swim. Tons of sizes, including larger ones. Everything's converted from European sizes, so it's easy to figure out. Looks like there are a bunch of tops and dresses. It's all very colorful. There's jewelry, but not many bags—except a couple of lame totes and a few clutches. I expect they'll be gone fast. There's one rack for men and one table of shoes for men. It's massively affordable for what it is."
