Heading into the holiday weekend, we checked back in on the BaubleBar sample sale, which was supposed to end today but is now now extended through Saturday. There's still a good collection of necklaces, though the supply rings and earring is dwindling. Here's an update of the state of things, for your weekend spoils:
The rings have been picked over the most and got the least love when the stock was replenished last night. Most sizes left are either very small or very large, and a few pieces are missing stones or gems, so keep an eye out for quality when you're sifting through. There were some nice gold thick bands for $12 as well as a few midi rings ($5) amongst the collection.
Earrings are still in the $5—$20 range, and the studs are sparse. Though there are a bunch of cute silver skulls available, most styles are bigger and bejeweled. Bracelets are still fairly plentiful, all $5—$15 and most elastic or bangle styles—the cuffs proved to be most popular. We found a quirky handcuff bracelet for $5, and a gold pull clasp for the same price.
The section with thin chain necklaces is a little tangled up at the moment, but if you're willing to pause and look through the knots you'll find some nice stackable pieces for $10—$15. Amongst the bigger necklaces, prices still range from $10—$25, with plenty of stock left. There are fewer longer styles, but the $25 section is considerably smaller, so mostly everything is $20 and under.
The necklaces were being actively restocked as people shopped, so you'll likely have the same picks for these last two days of the sale. The crowd was quiet today since it's still a work day for most (plus the weather sucked), but expect to have to hustle through a crowd if you wait to shop until tomorrow.
Through Saturday, April 4th. Fri through 7pm, Sat 10am—6pm.
