The biggest online marketplace has officially entered the flash sales game in launching the Fashion Vault, where certain pieces will be available at sample sale prices for eBay members for limited periods of time.
Unlike other flash sales sites like Gilt Groupe or RueLaLa, the Fashion Vault isn't invitation-only -- the sales are open to all eBay members and last typically a few days (kicking off at 8AM PST, in a radically new anti-noon turn!). Best of all, the shipping on all the sale items is free inside the U.S. Previous sales thus far have included Cole Haan outerwear and the current sale is on Hugo Boss suiting for up to 60 percent off. We're bookmarking the big DKNY sale scheduled to start next Monday, ourselves.
