Obey Warehouse Sale 2012

Okay, so this is was my first time ever to go to a warehouse sale. If you don't know what a warehouse sale is, it's basically when clothing companies open up their warehouses where they keep their inventory of current and last season apparel and sell the clothing at discount prices..usually 50-70% off! Warehouse sales usually happen once or twice a year depending on the company. The purpose of these  sales are to get rid of their inventory of current and last season apparel so that they can make room for the new season's collections. What brought me to the Obey warehouse sale this year? The incredible deals! Apparently the obey warehouse sale is legendary, it is probably the most popular warehouse sale everyone wants to be at. The sale brings in so many who are eager for discounted merchandise. So what exactly was my experience like you ask? Well I woke up at 5:30am to make sure my brother and I were able to make it early enough to beat the crowd who would be waiting for the warehouse to open. We were able to make it to the sale at 7:00am, and little did we know that 7:00am will not be early enough! We came to a winding line of about 300-350 people all waiting for the warehouse to open. I heard people were waiting since 4:00am and brought lawn chairs and blankets...yeah..RIDICULOUS! haha they don't call it the "Legendary Obey Warehouse Sale" for nothing lol The warehouse opened at 8:30am and was open until the late evening. They way they let us into the warehouse was basically in groups of 25 or so. Once you were let in you were giving a sticker stating the time you entered the warehouse in my case I entered at 11:30am (remember I came at 7:00am, its called the waiting game ladies haha) and a large trash bag to hold the clothes and goodies we were able to snatch up. We had 20 minutes in the warehouse to pick up whatever we wanted, yup I waited about 4 hours for a crucial 20 minutes (I better find some good stuff or this would have been a waste!) Well the girls area in the sale was a HOT MESS! Jeez louise... haha I mean everything was a mess and just boxes and boxes of clothes! I literally went to each box and picked up whatever I could, even though I wasn't sure about it, I kept it. There was no time to linger and really look at what I was getting, and the risk the chance of someone picking up the shirts that I wanted. Literally everything was getting snapped up right in front of me and I didn't want that to happen! Well I got some great stuff!

The Goodies I got:

Leather Jacket- $40 (warehouse sale price) $94 (Retail)---Buy here
Peach Tank Top- $15 (warehouse sale price) $23 (Retail)---Buy here (white version)
White Slouchy Top- $15 (warehouse sale price) $44 (Retail)---Buy here (similar with a pocket)

Overall thoughts, I got awesome deals. Long wait, but great rewards :) Will I do it again? Probably not...As much of an experience it was, it was was too much of a wait. I can basically check this off of the list of things I have done, "Gone to the Legendary Obey Warehouse Sale" haha but will I go to another warehouse sale ABSOLUTELY! I am hooked on warehouse sales!! Smarties, this is the way to go! These sales are chalk full of deals and steals! I am so excited to go to another one (definitely any other warehouse sale will be NOT be this crazy!)

Warehouse Sales are Smart girl approved! Let's get some good deals smarties!
