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 Vox.com, 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.
Update: As of Friday afternoon, items will be reduced up to an additional 50% off already reduced pricing for the remainder of the sale. Original prices are reflected in the gallery.
The BaubleBar sample sale starts today at 260 Fifth Avenue, and we really hope that you're taking our advice and getting there early — not just because prices are between $5 and $30, but also for the free necklace the first 100 customers will get when you mention Racked at checkout.
After you check your coat and bag, you'll find earrings along the left side of the room starting at $5 and going up to $20 for styles that range from studs to longer, dangly options. Toward the back of the room, you'll find bracelets and rings priced between $5 and $30; a lot of rings were on the lower end of that price spectrum.
And in the middle of the room, you'll find the main event: Necklaces. We saw so many colorful stones, jewels, and metal-linked styles, so grab a plastic tray from one of the helpful sales associates and start making your selections. There is also a small selection of accessories like iPhone cases flash tattoos, cosmetic bags, and jewelry sets next to the register.
The staff said that there is plenty of extra merchandise on hand that they'll be restocking throughout the sale, but if you've had your eye on something particular, like the Vial Collar ($30, originally $68), or the Festival Tassel bracelet ($20, originally $34), both of which are full-price online, we'd suggest getting there sooner rather than later.
While there's no word of markdowns (or extended dates) just yet, we'll keep you posted. Before you leave the sale, you can enter to win $200 to spend at BaubleBar's website just by leaving your email. Check out the sale's dates and hours in the Dealfeed below.
