Sample Sale Alert: Baccarat and Asprey
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly
O.K., get out the plastic again -- you will not want to miss this sale. Both Baccarat and Asprey are cutting prices and now is your chance to stock up on lavish gifts, find luxe clothing, or dress the house in the finery of crowned heads of state.
Asprey, with all its fancy royal warrants and over-the-top merchandise (if memory serves us, we once saw a sterling Champagne chiller there -- for multiple bottles -- for thousands and thousands and thousands) is a pretty $$$ shop, but at the “sample” sale, there are tons of things that are affordable…expect to find Asprey’s signature leather goods, jewelry, silver, and clothing -- up to 75% off.
Baccarat is known for its superb lead crystal, giftware, and decorative items and at this sale, they say, there will be rare museum pieces, whatever that means. But one thing we do know that it means, is d-i-s-c-o-u-n-t -- probably 60-75% off original prices. Do what we do to try to finesse an even better deal: Go the first day or two and scope out what you want, and then wait until the last day, when the prices are generally cut even more. (Yeah, we know -- you do, indeed, risk losing your item; it’s a hedge, what can we say? -- we still do it!) Remember, plastic only, no cash, no checks.
The sales are at Soiffer Haskin, 317 W. 33 St., just west of Eighth Ave. It starts tomorrow, Mar. 3, and goes through Tuesday, the 6th. Daily, 9am to 6:30pm., and Tuesday, until 5pm only. Again -- read the entry below for Dennis Basso -- no kids under 12, no strollers, etc. Be prepared to check big bags, and also to go home a happy camper with really gorgeous stuff!
