Shh! Don’t tell anyone. But on Sunday March 17 get to the Ace Hotel for the “Bag It Up!” artist’s seconds sale – an event where local makers look to off-load some of their off-beat, quirky, all-around “I want that!” styles at a you-can’t-beat price.

For only $20 you get one bag to fill with all the swag you can snag. These “artist’s seconds” are t-shirts, greeting cards, artwork, coffee mugs, maker materials, used pieces, and other snag-’em-up items that these local makers are looking to clear out in order to make room for their new products.

These makers will be there:
