Inside Studio T: Sample Sale

Every Friday we share a weekly behind-the-scenes photo taken in our offices at Tea. This could be anything – great employee outfits, our sources of inspiration, shots from our parties, or photos of us hard at work. For more sneak peeks behind the scenes at Tea click here.

Last week we hosted a Tea Sample Sale at our offices to clear out stock from previous seasons. Before we opened the doors to the masses (who were lined up around the block), I took a few shots of some girl’s and women’s clothes that were hanging on the racks. I love our Sample Sales for the opportunity to see patterns and styles from past seasons that I loved, and have forgotten about.

And there’s another Sample Sale this weekend, at our offices in San Francisco! $5 entry, with all entry fees going to the Global Fund for Children. Details are as follows:

Location: 117 Wisconsin Street, San Francisco 94107

Days: Friday August 26th, 9am – 3pm and Saturday August 27th, 9am – 1pm.

Will you offer the sample sale online in the future?


Hi Sylvia! We have done similar discounts online before. For example, our extra 25% off sale items or $15 Dress/$10 Top sales are similar to the prices you’ll find at a sample sale. At this time, we don’t have any immediate plans to host a sample sale online.

Hi Sara!
I do my best to keep up with facebook but I do miss a lot through that. I am signed up through my email but have not ever received info about sample sales in SF just for the new arrivals. I would LOVE to receive an email about sample sales, do I need to sign up for that somewhere else?

Thank you so much, don’t want to miss it!!



Hi Kate! Be sure to enter your zip code when you sign up. We’ll send an email to everyone who enters a Bay Area zip code. You can go ahead and update your email subscription here:

You definitely won’t want to miss the next one! 🙂

Hi there,

I asked about this last year and am dying to know when there is going to be another sample sale in San Francisco this year, 2013?!!!

Thank you!


Hi Kate! We haven’t announced plans yet for another sample sale in 2013. We only have them when we have the inventory to support them. If and when we do have one, we’ll be letting our fans know on Facebook and email. Make sure you’re signed-up for both!


I have tickets to go to your sample sale Dec. 7th. I was wondering if anything from your Nordic line that came out in July would be part of the sale or is that too new?


There will be children’s clothing from newborn to 12 years, limited women’s clothing, and accessories. The prices haven’t been determined yet but will be posted at the sample sale.
