Remember the fab sample and seconds sale from April this year? It’s your lucky week, because Super Seconds Festival is coming up again this weekend Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd October 2022.
It is the UK’s biggest independent seconds and sample sale, featuring 250 independent makers: artists, designers and crafters – all offering affordable and very giftable creations… they may be labelled samples and seconds, but I have never bought anything in this sale that I could not gift onwards. In fact, I struggle to find anything wrong with the so-called “seconds”!!!
I will be listing more sale items (including the piece I’ve given you a sneak peek of later in this post!) through this week, so keep checking in before the sale opens this Saturday 1st October until 6pm on Sunday 2nd October. Don’t forget to sign up to my email list for EARLY ACCESS and some extra goodies!
This sale is full of one-off sample tea towels, a few cards and some prints, most of which have absolutely nothing wrong with them – I just haven’t the space to store everything forever, so out they go!
In addition, there will be a very limited number (just one each!!!) of hand painted baubles available, perfect samples I made over the last few months but never actually put in my shop! Here’s a peek at one, halfway through the painting process, in the image below, perfect to mark a new pet’s first Christmas!
Childstar Samantha has put it beautifully in her blog post (click the link to read it!) – here are the compelling reasons to shop the Super Seconds Festival this October:
“Whether you’re searching for inexpensive gifts for women, men or kids, the festival covers art, fashion, jewellery, homewares, kids’ stuff and more. So you can get organised super-early for this festive season and snap up ALL your Christmas gifts in one fun-filled weekend! Independent makers tend to create products that have way less impact on the planet and help drive local economies across the UK. The Festival supports sustainable living, allowing sellers to find homes for products that may otherwise end up in landfill and buyers to snap up lots of lovely bargains!” – Sam
So, head over the Super Seconds Festival Maker Line Up and get started creating a wish list with the very handy favourites feature. And don’t forget to follow @supersecondsfestival and #supersecondsfestival so you can find all the 250 makers on instagram as well, because we’ll be doing Instagram lives, interviews, product demos, process videos and plenty of promotions in the run up to and on the days as well. Learn the stories behind the makers, the hows and whys and wheres. Don’t forget to follow me @ArtySubu too!
To recap, the event starts at 10am on Saturday, 1st October and runs until the evening of Sunday, 2nd October. My lovely mailing list VIPs will get early access from 8 am on Saturday, 1st October. Most samples and seconds are one-offs so fastest finger gets the bargains! Some of us will offer more items on the Sunday so no-one misses out.
Plus, 10% from each order will be donated to the Royal Free Charity: this particular cause is very close to my heart as I have been a renal transplant outpatient at the Royal Free hospital for nearly ten years now and been a first-hand witness to their care and dedication to their jobs.
