Cynthia Steffe: Survivor Edition report From the Front

This year there were two gangs of women line-cutting and fighting for the narrow space in the vestibule of the narrow, cramped rented sample sale space for Cynthia Steffe where everything was $20 - except for leathers.

Original tags are $195, $225, $295. Last year's group of hoarders in contention for space in small cramped hallway arguing with a ring leader of another group - who cut the line by at least 7 people. Lobby chaos by 9:30 a.m. By 10 a.m. people were allowed to enter the elevator - only 10 at a time - so be prepared to wait. "Ladies put your clothes on," was the funniest line ever at a sample sale as the Cynthia Steffe male security guards and female salespeople were trying to keep women from disrobing. One woman kept begging a security guard to look - he seemed as if he was standing before curdled milk.

It is a mini-battle zone with happy warriors, so good luck:
Tuesday Dec. 7 - Friday Dec. 10 (I doubt anything will be left)
10am-6pm all days
218 W. 37th St (between 7th & 8th ave), 7th Floor
Cash and major credit cards accepted

I'm going this morning. I purposely wanted to avoid that group of women. Someone needs to pepper spray them.
