REVIEW: L’Agence Sample Sale, Everything $10!

REVIEW: L’Agence Sample Sale, Everything $10!

We could not miss L’Agence’s sample sale yesterday. It took place at a different space this time, and EVERYTHING was $10! We also learned that at their samples-only sales (like this one), everything is $10 and there’s no tax. L’Agence also has a productions/ samples sale (where samples and production overruns are sold) and there is tax. Also in the latter, there are obviously more sizes and everything is not picked over or damaged/ unfinished. Also, there was a sale preview on Friday (good to know for next time). However, we stopped by around 10AM (about 2 hours into Saturday’s sale), and there was still a lot left. This was the scene when we got there:

This time around, we entered what looked like to be their headquarters office, which was lined with racks and racks of samples. Some were showroom samples, so they were labeled and in “like new” condition with no flaws. However, most of the items were unlabeled prototypes and many had unfinished hems, safety pins or other damages. There was certainly a lot of dreck to sort through but if you had the time and the patience, you could’ve uncovered some real gems here. We found business/casual tops, skirts, pants, jackets and dresses, evening dresses, coats, knits, and even shoes and boots(!). Dresses (retail up to $600) and eveningwear (retail up to $800) were all just $10!  We found black leather over-the-knee boots and suede half boots, also just $10! Among the myriad of dresses, below are some of the ones we spotted, along with retail pricing to give you an idea of the huge deals to be found. This sale was definitely worth the driveby!
