Rebecca Minkoff LA Sample Sale
Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale

Just when we were are all calming down from the previous Rebecca Minkoff sample sale, here is another! I spoke to Rebecca and she said the last sample sale was not only a huge hit but also a tad crazy. Well, I already knew that, and I know that the Rebecca Minkoff followers always go crazy for her sample sales. The Rebecca Minkoff LA Sample Sale will begin on January 13, 2008 and go from 12 pm – 6pm. The only unfortunate thing is there will be no phone or email orders accepted. This is for the reason stated above; the flood of people wanting this bags is too overwhelming at the time! Sorry to all of ‘us’ but all of you in LA better get there early, stay in line, and tell us about your loot!

belen echandia sample saleWhat: Belen Echandia Sample Sale

*Exclusive* When: TODAY exclusively for Purse Blog and Forum members ( Sunday 2 December at 4pm PST )

The rest of the sample sale will be held on the Belen Echandia website from Monday 3 December at 10am to Wednesday 5 December at Midnight GMT.

Deals: Expect bags marked down between 30% – 75%

More info: As Belen Echandia has grown, it has been necessary to make more and more ‘samples’ to send out to buyers and journalists. Although largely in great condition, in some cases perfect, we do not feel happy selling this merchandise to customers at full price.

So, we considered what to do with it. We give some of it to charity and we give a little to our friends and colleagues. And we have decided to start a new tradition at Belen Echandia – we are going to offer some of these samples to our customers at a very low price. In most cases bags will be marked down by between 30 and 75%.

Most of the handbags offered will be one-offs and there are even some items which have never made it into production so you will have a very unique piece.

We will be taking orders from Purse Forum members from Sunday 2 December at 4pm PST. Contact us for more details.

A special thank you to Jackie for giving all members of our forum and blog extra time to get these bags before the rest of the world! Get the bag you have been dreaming of from a great up and coming designer! Check the website at
