People Are Waiting 2 Hours In The Rain For $1577 Tennis Bags At The Hermes Sale

It's official, "light, wintry mix" has re-entered our vocabulary. Besides cursing the weather gods, pre-April showers also bring Hermès sample sale fanatics, as evidenced by the gargantuan crowd that started lining up for the mother of all luxury sales (up to 70% off) at 4:30 morning. While at this point the merch on tap has to be scraping the bucket, Racked reports that there are scarves for $231 (originally $385), ties for $111 (originally $185), bracelets for $215 to $330, and bags that run the gamut from $962.50 to $3950, including an orange nylon tennis bag with tennis-racket pouch for $1577. Note that they will not be restocking the floor, but you can ask for plastic packing baggies. Score! For more deets and a hilarious live report, check out Fawnia Soo Hoo's column. "It's a black hole!"
