Today, July 14th, was the start of the Alexia Crawford Sample Sale. After second-guessing my navigation skills and double checking the address (35 west 36th street appeared to be more like a construction site than a functioning building), I rode the elevator up to the sixth floor. I was very impressed by the neat and colorful selection of the Alexia Crawford merchandise amidst the off-putting surroundings of the showroom. On display was a vast selection of Hair Accessories (primarily decorative plastic headbands), Flower Brooches, Bracelets, Necklaces, Rings, Clutches, and Handbags. They even had umbrellas and rain boots (shown above) that would’ve certainly come in handy on this gloomy Monday.
There weren’t many pieces that interested me. Most of the jewelry didn’t differ much from the selection that one can find on street side stands or inexpensive jewelry shops throughout New York City— At first glance, I was left unmoved. The beaded necklaces (above) seem to fit the cheap price ($10 a piece)
That being said, some of the merchandise is certainly worth the visit to this relatively small show room. The handbags are a steal (at $25 each, shown above) I particularly like them in the brown, black, and neutral shades. I was also drawn to the colorful bangles (shown above).
Now, the most important question addressed in my review of the Alexia Crawford Sample Sale– did I leave empty-handed? Far from it. I left with a white beaded necklace, an oversized ring, a bunch of bracelets and bangles (shown above) — and $52 dollars less in my pocket– Though making a trip to the ATM isn’t necessary, they accept all major credit card. Prices are as follows: Hair Accessories: $4.00
Belts, Gloves, Ear Muffs, Hats: $5.00
Brooches, Earrings: $6.00
Necklaces, Sandals, Scarves, Umbrellas: $10.00
I wouldn’t go out of your way to visit this sale, as you can probably find similar styles for comparable prices elsewhere. That being said, if you’re in the neighborhood, go check it out! You may get lucky– I did! -Rachel
