Gilt and Hautelook started doing business we nearly jumped for joy. No more digging through boxes at sample sales, no more standing in line, pushing, and shoving for the best merchandise and no more scrounging around for the best deal. Then Rue La La popped up along with Editor's Closet and Top Button. The list goes on and on. Obviously we have favorites and we do appreciate the sites' main goal (to get us designer merchandise at a lower price, sound familiar?). We are just wondering when the market will be fully saturated, or what will happen when the economy gets better and designers don't have as much overstock.
Well get ready for another sample sale site, although this one has more promise than most. Daily Candy is launching a new site, Swirl. The soft launch will be the week of November 16th and luckily the editors of Daily Candy will be picking the merchandise. We may be sick of all of all of these websites, but we know we will for sure be checking this one out.
