The Sample Sale Site You Must Join Now: Vente Privée Launches TODAY!

Vente Privée—the international flash sale site that inspired Gilt Groupe—launches Stateside today. We literally just signed up and you probably should too; today's inaugural sale is Paul and Joe Sister. Not bad, huh?

Since the company is based in Paris and caters to a European market, we're hoping for even more niche French brands. Sandro and Maje haven't even opened their first US stores yet, but who knows? With Vente Privée we might score some discounts before the brick and mortars are finished. (On a shopping-unrelated note: the main page has an animated image of a squirrel running around Central Park with a hot pink acorn. Um, AMAZING.)
