Here's what I learned from my sample sale experts":
1.) Have an idea of what you want and know how much it costs full price.
Of course, this is easier to do with handbags than with clothes. I was in the market for a quilted handbag with chain straps and wanted something a little different/edgy. I purchased the Swing handbag earlier in the year, but I returned it because it was way too heavy, so this time I considered getting a Mac Clutch. I also considered the Mab Mini, until one sample sale expert mentioned that I couldn't cross it over my body. That was a deal break for me! I love crossbody bags and am so glad that it is the trend these days.

- Make sure the zippers work
2.) Check the quality of the product before purchasing.
