Luxury clearance sale

So, whats the happy thing about making me can't sleep?

Anyway, it is not happy already after I got back from the Valiram Group top luxury warehouse sales at Grand Millennium. Thats about my dream to be a proud owner of COACH bag. I can't get any nice bag from there :(

I was sooo wanted to buy it from eBay US, being that the imitation goods is so alike now and Coach is so hard to differentiate and see which is authentic which is not just by the picture. So, I stop thinking to buy from there, to avoid more disappointment on paying the actual price, get the fake thing.

Yesterday when I got to know Coach on sales from shoppingnsales.com, I was telling myself I must go to have a look in hoping to get it. Well, I'm not a big fan to buy things from warehouse sales. Up to now, I went less than 3 times to any warehouse sales. To my concern, warehouse sales is about clearing old stock, outdated fashion, rejected items or item almost expired.

Because Coach is luxury brand, so I got to try my luck. They open at 10am. Since I have those concern, I don't want to go the next few days or any hours later, as the items may get lesser or may have more disappointment. Reach there at 10.05am, gosh! long long queue outside the entrance.

The organiser arrange it in such manner for the comfortable of shoppers not sqeezing with each other and crowded at shopping area. We went in batch by batch. I was at the queue for 45 mins only able to get into the Fashion function room entrance. There are 2 rooms, 1 side for watches and another one for fashion (bags, shoe, apparel, purfume and chocs).

Before I enter the room, I saw big big poster, only cash and VISA accept. Oh my..I didn't read properly the brocherous and I brought my MasterCard along only. I just told myself...sei for, if I want to buy also cannot liow...no cash. Pls don't let me see the bag that I dream for. Don't care la..still go in. Once I entered, directly head to Coach. Lots of people standing there to choose, but can see most people also see and put back. Me too, it is a bit disappointed that the design are outdated and old stocks. I used to saw that at eBay long time ago. About the discount, up to 70%, yes it is for Jimmy Choo and other brands. For Coach bags only have 50%. There are keyfob, shoes, purse/wallet too. But all are still expansive, it is like RM1k above. For purse or wallet, not really so attractive too. Design on coin purse the most and the price is ranging RM300-RM900. Only have limited design on handbang and somemore they pour out different design batch by batch, not all you can see at one go. Really so disappointed. Saw that these Coach bag or purse are not come with care card and box. There are a few Coach shoe are quite nice, but I no fansy on that. Quite cheap on the canvas shoelace shoe (60% less).

Proceed to other counter on Charles & Keith shoe, purfume, Shanghai Tang, Chloe, Jimmy Choo and chocolate also have like Tobelerone, KitKat and some other (not sure never check, heard the expired is near). For purfume, it is not cosmetic purfume. Majority nothing to shout about, old stock, old design, old colour and all expansive...branded one after discount still RM1k above. When I see the crowd is getting pack at Charles & Keith, I walk back there again and check. Saw few shoe design I like. So, I pick it up, try and get the size I want. End up only 1 of it have my size - 35 (so small..) as a "compensate" not back with empty hand. Many are go for chocs and shoes.

Spend 30 mins there, luckily no nice Coach bag I caught, else I will like hitting my chest. Actually I did saw my friend (she also not bring - another chest hitter) and her friend actually have it and can pay for me first. But end up no purchase also, so no need la..
Charles & Keith shoe - RM 70 damage

So now better save and or else see lou kong "sing muk" to let my dream come true. I have been wandering outside Coach boutique everytime I passed by.

Is Coach that hot in KL? In HK, i hardly see people carrying Coach, most are preferred LV and Gucci.

Interesting, I found your blog by accident. I don't know, I'd probably spend far too much money at this kind of clearance sale.

I love Charles and Keith, but you got a good bargain there. It's hard to find C&K selling below RM100 here.
