CHANGE THE FORMAT BACK, I can't even read this page now. Horrifically inconvenient.


Agreed. Terrible format. Why is it so hard to find NYC sample sales now that NY Mag stopped publishing theirs? Bummer!


I agree. I hate slide shows - your site makes everything difficult to view.


You changed the format of the sample sales page. Now it's a mess. Keep it simple, dum dums. Only sample sales on the sample sale page, with dates, times and location, all on one page.
