In October, we attended Root Division's 8th Annual Art Auction. The event was a blast and the art auctioned was fabulous. Unfortunately, all the pieces we coveted were also wanted by others with much deeper pockets. Luckily, Root Division is holding a holiday sale this Saturday where no items will cost more than $100.
Some of the Bay Area's finest local artisans and emerging artists are coming together for one night only for the Under 100 'H' Sale. Items for sale include unique drawings, paintings & photographs, handmade jewelry, fair trade clothing, knitwear made from recycled yarn, and much more!
And here's the best part, with no items over $100 it'll be easy to get all of your holiday shopping done (and perhaps find a few new pieces of art to adorn your walls). According to Root Division, the "H' in the event's name stands for handiwork, homegrown, harmless, heroics, hyenas, and habeas corpus, all great reasons to celebrate.
Stop by what is guaranteed to be a fun event...how often do you get to cross items off of your holiday shopping list while sipping cocktails and listening to some music with other artsy folks?
