Definitely not a fan. Went twice in my life, both times horrible experience. Herds of people and leftovers of leftovers as far as clothes. I prefer just to go to Barneys during their sale.

I was the same way- I completely avoided it for yrs-then my friend dragged me there one yr and I scored in such a big way-amazing cashmere for $40, Dries shoes or only $89-the list goes on and on. I try to go on off hrs when other folks are at work. It definitley cuts down on the crowd factor-who needs that drama?!

I was just wondering if anyone had been and could say whether it was worth the effort, because it's definitely an effort. Actually, I'm gonna skip it this year, probably. The sales after x-mas were really great...I've probably got enough stuff already...

I also had an incredible season as far as sales go. I got several very unique pieces by Ann Demeulemeester, Watanabe and Helmut Lang at substantial discount (not to mention that most of it was bought with birthday money, go relatives!!!) so I'm done for now...

Nice! In that case check out my post in the NYshopping thread in this section. I listed pretty much all places I go to.

It's currently on. Has anybody gone? I remember way back when, that this used to be a BIG event in fashion...Now it's just There are several Barneys outlets around now when there weren't back then. You could do really well there. There used to be lines around the block for this warehouse sale. Are there any lines now?

I haven't been since about 2 years ago. It was really bad then, nothing but Barneys private label crap. I think most people just don't bother anymore. The sales at Barneys at the end of each season have much better merchandise.

I went last week, it wasn't too bad. Lots of Marc Jacobs separates and Diane von Furstenburg dresses. Didn't buy a thing, though.

I'm going to try to get there this week. As everyone else stated, the sale just isn't that great.

I believe they took some additional markdowns today if anyone cares.

Has anyone in the West Coast been to the ones held in Santa Monica? There's one that just started yesterday and I wonder if it's worth going to. Here's the event info:
