The Sample Sale to Pay Attention to Tomorrow (Besides J. Crew and Madewell)

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.

If you're forgoing lingering Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales to save up all of your pennies for the J.Crew/Madewell sample sale extravaganza that starts tomorrow, remember that those (three!) sales aren't the only ones you should be paying attention to. On Tuesday, December 1st, you'll have to divide your shopping time wisely between those, women's indie favorite Ace & Jig, and fancy book publisher Assouline.

Be advised that crowds went bonkers for Ace & Jig the last time the brand had a sample sale, swarming the womenswear and children's apparel over most other labels that were available. Everything was priced at $60, causing shoppers to really go above and beyond to protect the discounted clothing they were able to pull off the racks.

Expect Assouline's sample sale to be a bit calmer, but still grab-worthy. Take advantage of up to 70% off retail prices on luxe coffee table books and holiday gifts to find the perfect present for the stylish someones on your shopping list.

Both of these sales start tomorrow, December 1st; Check out the Dealfeeds below for details.
