I was asked recently if I have sales periodically…I think every day I open the shop is a sale. The majority of my inventory is made up of sample gowns. Those tried on in salons, never worn for a ceremony. The bridal industry dictates that when new designs come out, the ‘traditional’ bridal shops must update their sample gowns. These ‘traditional’ stores have to buy their new samples and so are anxious to get rid of their previous inventory of samples. I scoop them up at a fraction of the cost and this allows me to pass along the savings to my customers…win, win, win! Most samples are in perfect condition but I do put them through a process, fixing zippers, replacing buttons, tightening beads and dusting hemlines. They are beautiful and uncompromised, ready to be a part of your special day. So, as far as I can see it–every day here is a sample sale!
