Our tour started out at the world’s largest trim store, where we met our tour guide, Sarah. The store had any accessory or trim you can think of stocked to the ceiling! My mind was racing with ideas for new and fun do-it-yourself fashion. The walls of accessories went on for miles and I settled on some cool feathers. I think I will use them on an upcoming headband creation! I will definitely be back there soon to pick up some more pieces. After the trim store we went to seven different sample sales. A sample sale is when you get to shop designer discount racks and save a ton on your purchases. We got the chance to shop vintage jewelry pieces, new season furs and last season clothing and accessories up to 75% off! It was truly amazing and we would not have known about these sample sales if we hadn’t been on this tour. Lora and I both bought great necklaces that were custom made by a private label firm that makes pieces for some IT designers like Escada and Tory Burch.
Aside from the women’s tour there are also men’s tours of the Garment District, Soho boutique tours, upscale stores like Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman and private tours as well (all complete with a personal shopper). I highly recommend these New York shopping tours to groups as well as individuals looking for a bargain or an upscale experience. I even booked the Soho Boutique Tour for my girlfriend’s birthday. You can never do enough shopping, right?
