We’ve had a few sample sales already at Ollie + Squish, and they are always a lot of fun. If you’re new around here, here are all the things you need to know about making the most of our sample sales.
What exactly is a sample sale?
A sample sale is your chance to get your hands on O+S clothing and swimwear at a steeply discounted price.
Items are limited exclusives—and they will not be restocked in the future—so it’s first come first serve. While sample sales don't technically end, you’ll have to hurry if you have your eyes on something—when an item is gone it’s gone for good!
Where do the pieces come from?
The majority of the pieces in a sample sale are sewn from extra fabric from previous seasons or fabric leftover from custom orders. Occasionally, there are pieces that didn’t make the cut for the current seasons, but ones we still love nonetheless!
We’re always trying to be mindful of our environmental impact, and by using up this fabric, it ensures that extra fabric doesn’t end up in landfills. Plus, it also allows customers to get their own unique O+S clothing and swimwear at a discounted price. Win-win.
What sizes and quantities are available?
The individual quantities and sizes will vary based on the amount of fabric for a particular print.
If we only have one size of a particular item, you’ll be able to see it directly on the listing, for example: Rust Birds Rashguard 3T. If a particular listing doesn’t list a size on the link, that usually means there is more than one size available, so click the image to take a peek and see what is available.
Can I return an item?
All sales are final during a sample sale. However, our Buy Back Program still applies to sample items. When your little one outgrows clothing or swimwear, you can send it back to us and we'll offer you a discount on your next purchase. You can read all about it here.
How will I know when a sample sale is happening?
We announce sample sales on our Instagram and email newsletters a couple of days beforehand, so be sure to keep an eye out for the announcements!
If you have any more questions before or during a sample sale, feel free to DM us on Instagram and we'd be happy to help!
