    Damn, how I wish sometimes I lived in NYC...

    I expect a full report red, nothing like drooling on a Sunday afternoon.

    Wow, back-to-back Weston and Santoni sales, 2 Sundays in a row. I am wondering if Weston and Santoni co-ordinated with each other on their sale dates.

    Didn't someone post earlier that he was told by Santoni American office that there 'd be no sales this year?

    Tough part is explaining to the wife where I am going so early on a Sunday morning again.That and the shoe budget stash took a hit with the blue suede Weston's I bought yesterday.

    Anyone up for a bagel and coffee say around 9:00am in front of Santoni ?

    With these two sales, I'd be having bagel and coffee pretty much every meal.

    Bagel and coffee in NYC will run you too much -- better off sticking with the Grey's Papaya hot dogs.

    Wonder what this one will be like. Don't know if I can stand waiting outside the store for an hour in the hot sun again. In any case, this makes me even happier that I did not buy anything at the Weston sale.

    Just got off the phone with my guy at Santoni... Told him I was a little upset that I had to read about this one on line and he couldn't call me... He claimed there isn't much of anything, that what he said all along is true, they haven't recieved many samples from Italy and sold the ones they did to there customers whaen they had them... From what he said corporate headquaters got so many calls and e-mails asking about the "sample sale" that they decided to through a makeshift one together... Not sure if he was being honest or just covering up for not calling me, however I did say I was going to drop in anyway and he assured me it would be a waste of time..... Anyone else here anything?

    Any update? Anyone called the store on what's available?

    Be aware that the P.R. parade will be this Sunday, so for those of you planning on driving there, there will be lots of street closing and less parking spots available, especially the free ones.

    And if you need to use a bathroom, be prepared to pose as a wealthy industrialist, philanthropist and, uh, bicyclist...

    Varnsen....? Pennypacker...? Vandelay...?

    The Israel day parade was this past weekend, streets were closed every where, it was not easy getting to the Weston sale and even harder getting back home. Parking on the other hand is easy, Madison Ave is usually not closed for parades, just remember to bring lots of quarters for the meters.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I called the Santoni store, and it's confirmed the sale is on next Sunday 6/19

    Do you mean Weston will have another sale on 6/19? Do you know if they have different shoes on sale?

    I dropped in yesterday (see my other post) total waste of time IMHO. Every Fatte a Mano was still $795+++(NOT $249) and they had a many regular line shoes that were still more than there $169... Big let down, Last year I picked up a few "fatte a mano's" for $249 and it was an incredible deal.. At $795 your better off hitting Nordstroms when they have there half yearly sales etc...

    Agreed that it's a waste, unless you're jonesing for fugly loafers. Guy claimed that the Fatte a Mano were grabbed yesterday, but I doubt it.

    Pushy salespeople, too. One of the guys kept trying to push a pair of rubber-soled tassle loafers on me. [​IMG]
