You may want to make room on your calendar — and in your closet — for two accessory-focused sample sales happening this weekend: Haerfest (pronounced Harvest), beginning on Friday, March 4th, and Baggu on Saturday, March 5th.
At Haerfest — which is a joint effort with Craft Atlantica and Naadam — expect up to 80% off retail prices on current season, past season, and sample items from all three brands at 219 Mulberry Street. At the last Haerfest sale, there were backpacks (starting at $195) and document and laptop holders, plus some shoes. And based on the Craft Atlantic items we found at the Ernest Alexander sample sale back in January, we expect to see a wide range of shoes, shirts, and outerwear starting at $45. Lastly, if we had to guess what you'll find from Naadam, we say luxe cashmere — not too shabby, right?
As for Baggu, head to Williamsburg for 80% off retail prices on handbags, including past-season products and samples. Shoppers will also find merchandise from Nomia, Chen and Kai, and BDB. At the last Baggu sample sale, the Standard Baggus were $7 (or three for $20), basic leather totes were $89, and the brand's popular leather drawstring purses were $79.
