The Canvas sample sale kicked off this morning at their Chelsea store, and got off to a surprisingly quiet start. Once the doors opened, we were directed to the back of the store, where the sale items were beautifully merchandised in true Canvas style.
Walls of linen and velvet pillow shams for $12 to $15 enclosed the sale space that was stocked full of handmade dishes, glassware, cutting boards and table linens at significantly reduced prices. The furniture selection is small but worth a look at 50% to 70% off.
A huge assortment of glasses filled one wall of the sale and prices are as low as $2 a glass. Some of Canvas's classic collections showed up at the sale and were going fast. The most popular among shoppers was the Dauville Collection, the white ceramic bowls with platinum metallic interiors were marked almost 80% off and included various sized bowls for $5 to $14.
Linen and velvet throws are only $15, and the baby alpaca blankets are $99 to $110. We found a basket of small linen table cloths for $60 and linen aprons for 50% off. Round dog beds for $40 to $60 towered over the furniture section, where we spotted a variety of tufted pieces, including a classic linen sofa for $1750, a velvet chair, and linen benches. Felted wool cushions in burgundy and camel are only $26.
Handmade cutting boards of all sizes are only $20 to $54, which is 80% off the retail prices. Soft hand woven baskets with contrast colored rims offer great storage solutions, and range in price from $12 to $17. We saw more merchandise coming out as we shopped, and we were told to check back everyday for new pieces. Have a peek through the photo gallery above for a closer look at all the goods from today. The sale runs through March 17th.
