I've heard about the Eddie Borgo sale for a while but yesterday was the first time I checked it out. I have to say it did not disappoint. I headed downtown and arrived early (no VIP unfortunately) to find a couple women already anxiously waiting. They let us in a few minutes early and there was a rush to the $5/$10 bins. I didn't know I had to be so aggressive as women were literally emptying the bins onto their trays. Within minutes the bargain bin was cleaned out. This is a warning - next time I'm not gonna be so nice LOL.
The $5 bins consisted of prototypes or lightly damaged goods - some of which were easy fixes. The $10 bins was their product development pieces that they do for other companies - I saw Charlotte Russe and even Rebecca Minkoff jewelry in the mix.
Don't fret, even their "full price" pieces behold some killer deals. Smaller bracelets were just $20 (retailing for $200-400!) and larger ones were $40. I honestly didn't spend a lot of time looking at their inventory because my goal was to focus on $5 pieces - plus by the time I was done digging a lot of stock had been cleared. They had some of their Target collab pieces for about $5/10 too. No photography was allowed inside so you're just gonna have to look at what I got :)
A huge thank you to my fellow bargainista, Practically Haute who first clued me in to this sale. You can read one of her past sale reports here as pricing was pretty much the same.
Here's a quick look at what I got for 5 bucks a pop - some imperfections are more noticeable than others.
You know I love a good cuff. Nothing wrong with my bullet bracelet (retail $270) and it was actually the first piece I reached for in the bin. The D ring cuff (retail $225) has a weak closure and it's missing a stud. A fellow shopper offered it to me because she had two - thank you!
My rose gold five finger ring (retail $300) was intact until my daughter tried it on. No worries - easy fix!
A couple stones fell out of my necklace - just need to glue it back.
The french wire is separated on one of my earrings (retail $440!) - I'll just get my tools and reattach.
You can see the green stone is slightly chipped (retailed for $410!), and the closure on the gold pyramid bracelet (retail $350) is missing a part - but I can still get it to close.
I'm linking up a few pieces that I spotted - plus this way you can get an idea of retail prices.
On the way back to the subway I passed the Love wall (see first pic). I always find the cutest backdrops when I have nobody to shoot me. If you're interested, it's by the corner of Mott and Prince. I really have to do more exploring downtown.
Sale is on thru Saturday - I've heard they will be restocking (no word yet if that includes the bargain bins) so I'd strongly recommend a peek if you're downtown!

Thank you for everyone who came to say hello at the sale - I truly appreciate it. Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself over here. I'm just a real girl who loves to shop and share her deals.
