Wednesday, June 28, 2006 now open in Spain

Vente-privé, a website offering exclusive sample sales on brand-name apparel and home accessories, just launched in Spain today.

Vente-privé is the pioneer and leader on its market in France. In the past 9 months, more than 15 similar websites have launched trying to get a piece of the business that Vente-privé created in 2000.

Let's see if the sample sale fever catches on in Europe, as this "private club" sales model is really embedded in French/Parisian culture, but not in the other EU countries.

In New York and LA, sample sales organized in private lofts are a common thing. The closest thing to Vente-privé over there is Planet Lulu.

My guess is their next expansion country will be Germany.
