Rebecca Minkoff bags, adored by celebrities like Halle Berry, Blake Lively, Keira Knightly, and Jessica Alba, were on sale at a venue in Soho today. Celebrity trend followers (mostly in their 20s) lined up to try to cash in on the discounts.

The line for this sale wasn't surprisingly long. I arrived approximately 30 minutes before the doors opened and only found around 15 people ahead of me. By the 10am opening, the line grew to 40 calmly waiting patrons who were all let in. Once inside, the laid-back attitudes of the shoppers quickly changed to fierce competition. Rebecca Minkoff's MAC clutches in many different hues were jumping off tables and flying everywhere. People must have really liked the pricing because most were carrying at minimum 10 bags. But as if that wasn't enough, they were hunting for more. Morning After bag was $327 (originally $525~$595), Nikki $327 (originally $495~595), Main Squeeze Foldover were $217 (originally $395), Adore were $206 (originally $375), Mini Matinee were $272 (originally $450~$495), Mini Rikki $316 (originally $575), and True Love were $272 (originally $495). See more pricing at the end of this post.

In addition to these bags, I also spotted a table just for samples in the back of the venue. But mind you, these sample bags were quickly disappearing. For those that are interested, here are some sample prices I found: Mini Bowler in navy snake combo were $250, Ostrich MAC clutches were $160, Python clutches were $160, Burgundy with chain strap totes were $250, pouches in different sixes and colors were $15, a studded chain strap mini shoulder bag was $80, and Microfiber Mini Minis were $151. I couldn't find any Addictions or Knocked Ups.

Other than the popular Minkoff bags, there were many bins of small accessories and two lonely racks of RTWs. Prices for bracelets in different styles were $26~$42. Wallets were $69, $88, $90, $151. Pouches and keychains were $30. Also, if you purchase over $750 worth of merchandise, you received a free small pouch in silver (although it didn't look tempting to me). BTW, no lines by the time I stepped out.
