LOCAL BUZZ: Join us in our ongoing Local Buzz feature, where each week we bring you the story on an exciting business or event neighboring us here in the ever-inspiring Los Angeles Fashion District. Today we have an LA Sample Sale Guide for the 2014 Holiday season.
You may have already read our LA sample sale guide for the monthly Sample Sale Friday that takes place at the California Market Center. If you have not, or if you need a refresher, every last Friday of the month, the LA Fashion District comes alive as retail shoppers come to the wholesale store fronts and showrooms. In this event that is open to the public, inventory and sample pieces are sold at small mark-ups to cost, much less than what you would pay at a retailer. This is an opportunity to not only save money, but to see some unique pieces that may be styles which never make it to the stores in the first place. With patience and determination, savvy shoppers come away with great finds.
In terms of your LA sample sale guide for the holidays, the one thing you need to know is that rather than happening once a month, the showrooms of the California Market Center have extended dates. Starting on October 31st, every Friday will be a sample sale Friday up until December 19th. Also of note in this LA sample sale guide for the holidays that there will be no last Friday sale on December 26th – the 19th marks the last date for the 2014 year.
The extended instances of sample sale Friday allow the showrooms to clear out their merchandise and start fresh for the new year. They give shoppers the opportunity to hunt for unique gifts for family and friends – or perhaps find the perfect outfit and accessories for a seasonal social event. For more information, click here.
