Inside the Cooper & Ella sample sale

I’ve got both good news and bad news for you… and since I like to end things on high note I’ll start off with the bad: The COOPER & ELLA sample sale is no longer active, it’s been over for a few days, since the 28th to be exact. Now before you hit close on this tab just hear me out on the good news; using what I’ve learned from attending this last sample sale, we can make sure you are fully prepared and know exactly what to expect from COOPER & ELLA’s next sample sale that is bound to happen sooner or later.

Surprisingly enough, even the most seasoned of sample sale enthusiasts will tell you that having a solid game plan is key to getting the most out of any sample sale. (If there ever was a sample sale bible, that would definitely one of the ten commandments.)

Let’s start with the prices:

This sale boasted some of the best discounts I’ve ever witnessed from a sample sale! With retail prices dropping upwards of 90%! That’s both rare and nothing short of amazing.

An important piece of info to be aware of when it comes to sample sales is the amount of inventory and size range. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they’re collection ran a wide gamut of sizes from XS to XL, specially considering I visited on the second to last day of them closing, a period when other sample sales are usually picked through to the bone – so it’s safe to say that their next sale will be just as bountiful.

COOPER & ELLA gave me the freedom to choose between paying in either cash or credit/debit which is always a blessing since I am personally not a fan of being restricted to one form of payment.

At this point you should be more than ready to walk into the next COOPER & ELLA sample sale and have a head start on everybody else in terms of what to look for and what to expect. Now all you need is a way to keep up with upcoming sample sales so that you don’t miss out when COOPER & ELLA opens up their next one! The best way to be aware of all upcoming sample sales is to download the ShopDrop app from the app store (for free!).
