Even the savviest insider has had this sinking feeling: Entering a purportedly exclusive shopping event at the exact same moment a person exits with that meant-for-you lamp/rug/chair in his or her hands. “We’ve all been frustrated by getting to a sale too late, when all the good finds have already been found,” says interior designer Josh Harrison. Which is why he and antiques purveyor Tracy Fishman launched mysamplesale.com, a new website offering deep — up to 80 percent off wholesale — discounts on as-is floor models and samples from top Dallas furniture showrooms via weekly flash sales. (First up: Vinya, Ceylon et Cie and J.H. Minassian & Co.) While there is a special section available to the trade only, the majority of the goods offered by MSS are available to anyone via a free online membership. The duo’s kickoff sale is Monday, November 4, and Harrison and Fishman intend to add more cities to their roster in the near future. For information or to become a member, visit mysamplesale.com.
