I’ve got a secret.
I have an obsession for J.Crew.
Wait. Not a secret? Yea, I didn’t think so.
Over the past couple years my love for all things J.Crew has grown exponentially. Unfortunately my expendable income has not increased quite as rapidly, and I’m sure any wallet-conscious shopper knows that J.Crew items often come with a hefty price tag. Enter my real little secret: the J.Crew Warehouse Sale.
I readily admit that I’m no Black Friday shopper. Large crowds often test my patience, and I can’t even fathom trampling another person to get a TV half-price, but for the past two years I’ve made the two hour trek from Richmond to Lynchburg for their after Thanksgiving sale, and this year I definitely came out a winner. Examples of my finds? A leather skinny belt priced at $32.50, which I purchased for $5 and a J.Crew Collection color block shift dress priced at $298, for which I paid $35. Yeap, you read it right: $35. That’s nearly a 90% discount.
See this smile on my face?
It’s a perma-grin that will carry me through to the New Year.
Has anyone else ever attended a warehouse or sample sale? What is your favorite post-Thanksgiving find?
