Italy seems to be the theme here... sample sale madness!

There are two not-to-be missed sample sales happening this weekend in Montreal.

I walked by Mimi & Coco on my way home and their annual sample sale started today and runs through to this Sunday November 16th. I'm talking about the Little Italy location, not the westmount one. Here's a map.

Their sample sales are killer - Italian made cotton and wool for dirt cheap prices. I always pick up a bunch of great basics: long sleeved waffle knit shirts for winter, tank tops, etc. Last year, I also picked up the chocolate version of this chunky cable-knit poncho type sweater that wasn't cheap even at 50% off but it is now one of my ultimate autum cover-ups.

I recommend hitting it up on the Friday if you can (or tonight!) but be forewarned: it is intimidating to be in there with the regulars - those ladies will try to elbow you away from the boxes of cotton treasure. Just throw your shoulders back and dive into the fray, it's well worth it!

Next but certainly not least, there is a m0851 sample sale at their headquarters. If you don't know what I'm talking about, read my m0851 blog post (or blog gush, I should say). Can you say Canadian-made bags, coats, clothes and more from Italian Leather? Yes, Please!

Here are the details:

Friday, November 14 from 10h00 to 5h00
Saturday, November 15 from 10h00 to 5h00
Sunday, November 16 from 12h00 to 5h00

3981 Boul. St-Laurent
T. 514 842 1221

Happy Sample Shopping!
