The Calypso St. Barth sample sale starts today at 260 Sample Sale, but we stopped by last night to see what was up. For anyone that was invited to the preview but skipped it, smart move—the best stuff is arriving today. By best stuff we mean rugs, poufs, other furniture, and even more clothing. Did we mention that nothing is over $99? Yep, even the furniture is super cheap—we scored a couple of wooden stools for $49 bucks a pop (and they're really, really sick).
Besides the furniture, the floor is stocked with clothing and accessories. Everything is arranged by category and size, and priced by color. You'll find dresses first, followed by longer skirts and pants, then tons of racks filled with knits. There are jeans too, including styles by AG, Paige, and Seven For All Mankind. T-shirts and tunics line the entire back wall, and range from pieces like a $19 v-neck tee, to a sheer embellished beach cover-up for $79.
Swimwear was included at the sale this time, with bins filled with separates priced at $29 a pop. Nearby is where to find the rack of little girls' cover-ups—those are $29 each, and oh so adorable.
Accessories include springy scarves that range from $59 to $99, beachy hats for $29, and bags like a leather fringe pouch for $99 and a suede tote for $79. The shoe selection is pretty good, not to mention cheap. We picked up a pair of white high top sneakers for $39 and some gold espadrilles for $59. The sale will be restocked throughout the week, so keep checking back if you don't see what you want the first time. Oh, and yes there is a fitting room (thank god). Check out the gallery for photos from inside, plus the full price list.
Tuesday, March 10th to Saturday, March 14th. Tue 9am—8am, Wed-Thu 10am—8pm, Fri 10am—7pm, Sat 11am—7pm.
