So, if you didn’t know…

Kate Spade is currently finishing up a surprise sale! It can be a dangerous event, as there are some incredible deals. A few things I’ve noticed this time around:

1. More of the merchandise is regular merchandise, not outlet.

Outlet Kate Spade is nothing to scoff at, it’s still cute and well-made, and sometimes there are some super cute patterns and pieces that aren’t available in the regular collections. (See my Red Kate Spade Crossbody) Still, it is nice to see full priced, regular merchandise on sale!

2. People can be ridiculous on Facebook.

I’m not going to lie, I love reading the comments on surprise sale posts- I like seeing what other people decided to buy! However, those posts also become a venting place. I have noticed quite a few comments of people complaining that something was 66% off instead of 75%. Firstly, it says “UP TO 75% off”, not “75% off”. Secondly, it is still 66% off- you *probably* aren’t going to beat that sale price. Be happy and enjoy the sale! They don’t need to offer sales to us.

3. We get to see stuff that isn’t normally out there!

I looked at the surprise sale while I was sitting with the bunnies, and I shrieked when I saw it: a DOG PRINTED TOTE! AND, WHAT’S THAT??? THE MATCHING WALLET?!? Of course, I had to get them.  Regularly over $300, I got them for $108. Tiny Scotties/Westies  (I choose to see them as westies)??? YES, PLEASE.


I had them shipped to M, so I will pick them up in a few weeks when I visit him! I will also have Daisy bless them with her tiny westie paws 😊

Did you find anything at the Kate Spade surprise sale this time around?? Do you stake out surprise sales for any other brands?

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!

    OMG! There are so many great bags in this sale! The prices are crazy. I’m so mad I have to sit this one out, because I just bought a Rebecca Minkoff bag 😦

      I had to stop myself from buying the Scotty print cosmetic case and passport cover- I love them but wouldn’t use them. And there was at least five different purses I’ve been drooling over for MONTHS. *has to block KS sale site*

    Love your picks! I don’t really need anything at the moment, but when I spotted the Southport Avenue Oden bag, and saw the price, I knew I had to investigate the sale further…and now I’m debating whether or not to buy the bag!

      I have had to block it, lest I go back to buy the Scotty print cosmetic bag and passport cover!! And I *love* that bag!!
