Boston somehow scored the ability to host a sample sale at our convention center. The first was last February (still can't recall why I couldn't go), but my friend, S made her way over for some pretty awesome finds. This time around, the sample sale would not be missed! Let me paint the picture of this experience...
|The line of people waiting to get in...maybe 500?|
Fast forward to "selection time"- so literally women (and some men!) just line up on the perimeter of this room and start trying on clothes. Why yes, there were plenty of undergarments shown (!), but those of us prepared came wearing a form fitting tank and spandex shorts :) So you try on your pile, discard what you don't like...and then the real fun...sorting through other people's piles!
I cracked up at the good nature of folks there- offering items to strangers who looked to be the right size for it- all the while, trying to weed out what you really don't need. Even while standing at the checkout line, there's piles forming (again more discoveries!), so when you finally reach the cashier, you could STILL be editing.

Counting down to February 2013!
