Yesterday with my mom in tow I headed into the city to check out the warehouse sale. Our game plan was to find some fabulous fabrics and we figured being a pair would help us fight away the other ladies and get our hands on a fabric that would complete us.
Here is what we spotted first:
They had tables full of pillows. Mostly a mixture of crewel work and embroidery. They are $55 each. The small lattice rug also shown was $450.
Moving on we stopped to check out some of the Pratesi linens:
We kept on going and went straight for the FABRIC! Now at other fabric sales that I’ve been to there is normally a remnant section, which you can find pieces of fabric 5 yards and under for around $5, which is a total steal. There is also normally then bolts of fabric, which you can buy for a deal, but you must buy the whole bolt.
This sale was completely different. It looked like a mini showroom:
It was nice, because it was really organized, but it kinda of made me feel like there was no thrill for the hunt! The sale prices varied. It totally depended on the fabrics. I saw some on sale for $3.99 a yard up to $100+ as a sale price a yard.
Once you picked out what you liked you needed to find out how much yardage was in stock and then place an order for it. Again was kinda sad you just couldn’t grab and carry.
Scalamandre was also represented and they had tables of memo fabric & wallpaper samples you could through:
Stark has a massive amount of sale items.
From wallpaper: They were at least 50% off
To rugs, rugs and more rugs.
This one was a beautiful sea glass green shade:
Both me and my mom wanted to take this baby home, but it was massive and oh yea almost $7,000 bucks.
I use to hate oriental type rugs, but I’ve totally changed my mind lately. This one’s color combo was so pretty.
The walls were full of roll after roll ranging from $1,800- $3,000
More rugs many had SOLD tags already.
We walked out empty handed, but it wasn’t a waste. It was nice to check it out and see what it was all about. It seemed to be more oriented towards the more traditional designer whose clients have a classic six apartment on the Upper East Side.
While some of the prices still seemed high you could tell that the they were really expensive pieces and the mark downs were great if you could afford it.
The additional perk of this sale was that it was right next door to a massive HERMES sale. I wanted to take a peek and see if I could finally bring home a little orange box, but this was the line:
It went down the entire street! I didn’t even try to make in.
Anyone else in the NY area try out the sale?
