Voted the Best Sample Sale in LA by "Downtown LA Scene", the Saturday Sale at the California Market Center is the place to go if you want to buy designer clothing and accessories at wholesale and below prices. You can get up to 50%-85% off original retail.
Now... I don't consider paying $65 for a $450 sweater the best way to shop.... but, if you want designer stuff... and a lot of it... and the current styles, then you should get up your shopping courage and get down to the California Market Center on most of the last Saturdays of the month.
The California Market Center is where hundreds of manufacturers have their showrooms in LA. Once a month, they sell their samples, overruns and overstock to the public.
Cost to get in.... $1 (yipee!).... parking is $6 (bring a shopping friend and split the cost). This is a sample sale... they won't take your credit card.... bring cash.
Scheduled dates for 2007 are: 3/17, 5/12, 6/23, 7/28, 8/18, 9/15, 11/10, 11/23-24th, 12/1,12/8, 12/15,12/22. The hours are 10:00 am to 3:30 pm.
