J.Crew Warehouse Sale

October 5, 2011

At Liberty the equivalent of Black Friday is the J.Crew Warehouse sale. This past weekend on Saturday, my RA and I got up at 5:40 a.m. to leave and wait in line until it opened at 8:00 a.m. We made a stop at Sheetz to get warm coffee and breakfast because it was only 39 degrees when we left the dorm! I have never seen so many college students wake up so early for shopping and be willing to wait in freezing temperatures.

J. Crew is one of my favorite stores but my wallet can definitely not afford their clothing! This is the only chance I have to get a hold of their clothing and shoes. I was in desperate need of some new fall shirts and a new pair of shoes and I got exactly what I was looking for. The way the sale works is that when you walk in they hand you a big bag and a pricing sheet. We have learned that the best way to do this is to grab anything you see that you like and then decide at the end what you actually want. On average we put 80-100 items in our bags and only end up buying about 7-10 of them. My favorite purchase of the weekend were these black leather eddie oxford shoes. They were originally $250 and I got them for $40!! That's almost 85% off!
