We stopped by Time's Arrow's sample sale this morning, and were relieved to find a calm, clean, uncluttered space—perfect for casually checking out the label's selection of bags, totes, and leather accessories. The sale includes both stock and samples, and prices start at $50 for small leather pouches and max out at $295 for oversized leather totes.
The selection isn't huge, though, so if you're the type of person who wants a lot of options, this probably isn't the sale for you.
The majority of bags are smaller day-to-night cross body styles. Expect to find the brand's Mini Trilogy bags for $175 and convertible Vega clutches for$200. Most styles come in multiple colors and textures—everything from hologram metallic to magenta snakeskin—so the variety is pretty good.
We also found an amazing canvas and leather backpack sample for $125 that never made it into production—staff informed us that they only have a few available, so these'll probably go fast.
Though the prices aren't blowout cheap, most items are from recent seasons and marked down a full 50% off. Plus, the bags are well-made and durable, so we think they're worth dropping a little extra cash for.
There will be an additional 20% off markdown sometime tomorrow afternoon, and the staff will be restocking most styles throughout the sale (which runs through tomorrow night at 7pm.)—Gillian Fuller
