Seconds and Supplies Sale: June 1 10:00-3:00 at Running With Scissors in Portland.
It’s time to take a look around your studio, and ask yourself, does this item spark joy? If not, it may be time to move on. This unique sale is an opportunity for the public and fellow artists to purchase studio supplies, materials and equipment, as well as seconds (final products not quite right for full price retail or wholesale shows and stores) directly from Maine artists.
The sale is a co-production of Maine Crafts Association and Running with Scissors designed to support our members, have fun and help shift extra materials from people who don’t need them to people who do!
Vendors, volunteers and customers are invited to an after party at Urban Farm Fermentory 3-6pm. Join us to visit, connect and celebrate clean studios and new purchases. UFF is located steps from Running with Scissors (200 Anderson St) in dreamy tasting room perfect for a laid-back apres event offering brewed-on-site kombucha, jun, beer, cider & mead! (Attendance @ the sale not required to attend!).
