It’s almost time for the 4th Annual Sidewalk Sale at Crystal Bridges Museum Store! September 14 through September 16, from 10 am to 6 pm, we’ll be filling the courtyard surrounding Maman with sale merchandise including art-inspired home decor, jewelry, books. These items will be starting at 50% off of the original price. We are currently gathering up left over merchandise from previous traveling exhibitions, “onesies” (aka the last remaining item in inventory from what had been a whole display), and slightly dented merchandise that are still in usable condition. Look below for some featured items from our sidewalk sale!
For that special little one in your life, check out these baby-centered items. The Tooth Fairy kit, which includes a book telling the true story of the tooth fairy, a star pillow with a small pocket for holding teeth and other treasures, and a keepsake journal to record and remember each lost tooth. The large silver “piggy” bank features a silver piglet with a slotted opening at the top and small cork-filled opening at the bottom. If this isn’t the right piggy bank for you, then there is also a DIY piggy bank option to your left. By inserting the pig into any cylindrical container, you have the ability to make your own money bank. We’ll also have cloud bookends to give that whimsical feeling to any collection of children’s books. Lastly, there are two cute pacifiers—one having a mustache and goatee attachment and the other having a red panic button.
The Climate Change handbag series features the juxtaposition of the negative effects of climate change with the positive focus of nature’s current beauty. Smoke filled skies, oily waters, parched earth, pretty flowers, clean water, and sunset-filled skies are combined to create this beautiful rainbow-like pattern on a sling bag, coin purse, and tote. The company donates 2% of each purchase to non-profit organizations that help maintain national parks! You can’t beat having a stylish handbag while helping to save the earth at the same time.
For the abbreviating champ during this back to school season, check out these text speak erasers. They are available in the featured colors and sayings.
