Today is the first day and also the second-to-last day of the Furla sample sale, and depending on when you go, you'll need patience and a prayer to make your way in. A tipster told us that she waited in a standstill line outside 432 Park Avenue South for more than an hour this afternoon, and then had to wait in another line with at 20 more shoppers when she finally got upstairs—but as she left just a few minutes ago, there wasn't a single person waiting to get in.
Staff won't be restocking any of the bags, most of which range from $100 to $350 and are going quickly, since some shoppers are heading to checkout with ten of them in tow. The few remaining wallets are $65—$85, and there are "tons of plastic bracelets, keychains, and belts" still remaining. If you're headed over there tonight or tomorrow, let us know how you fare in the comments section.
Thu through 7pm, Fri 9am—7pm. 432 Park Ave S, 14th floor.
