Sample Sale Review: MAJE

MAJE sample sale in NY

From the first few moments at the sale it is obvious that MAJE is not an American brand. (It’s French). The sizes are European, so you had to translate numbers like 1,2,3 into 4,6,8. The racks at the entry are filled…

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Sample Sales

You Don’t Have To Be a Size 2 to Find Clothing  Once upon a time, a sample sale actually was a “sample” sale. Sample sales were a way for retailers to sell their items which were used in advanced showings, fashion shows, and presentations for interested buyers.
