I headed to Asheville, NC this past weekend, it was so beautiful and nice. The best part? Finding out the J Crew Warehouse Sale was happening while I was in town. I was super excited to experience this. The J Crew warehouse is located in Arden, NC just outside of Asheville. It was only a 15 minute drive from my hotel.
Here's how it looked when I arrived:

I literally ran into this rolling bin where employees were dumping discarded clothing in like it was raining. I was grabbing and looking, throwing aside. I was in a frenzy. So much to look at. But what was I really looking for. The bin was overflowing and I decided to move ahead and check out the other areas. Honestly, since this was my first time I had NO idea where to begin so I just walked, stopped and looked. I saw bridal gowns for $100 (up from previous cost of $50 last year I understand)I saw bridesmaid dresses, bathing suits, Crewcuts items, shoes, hats, bags. I decided to look for some cashmere sweaters and actually found a pink one in size small that worked perfectly. The only thing I found was a sample tag inside. They had Madewell sweaters as well as J Crew so it was fun looking thru the boxes. I've never seen so much J Crew in all my life. The next big sale is over Thanksgiving weekend. I'll be passing on that but would love to go back again in the Spring. Now that I understand how it works it will be a piece of cake. If you go sometime, plan to be there at least 4-5 hours. Even though I didn't go in at first there were still lots of great finds, you just have to look.
I spent a little over an an hour inside. I would've liked to have spent more time but my friend was waiting and she was extremely patient as I was cutting into our plans that day. I did score a sweater that I've been eyeing for a long time.
