Seconds Sale Fundraiser

The 2020 Seconds Sale will take place in November, in-person at the Snow Farm campus in Williamsburg, MA! 

Like most things 2020, it will look different than in years past. However, we are confident the sale can be held safely and offer the exciting handmade shopping opportunity that supports both Snow Farm and the 200+ artists who participate.  Here are some of the changes you can expect:

  • More shopping days!
  • New personal shopping by appointment each morning before the sale opens to the public. 
  • Pre-wrapped or to-go food in the cafe (no seating)
  • All shoppers, staff, and volunteers will be required to wear masks or face coverings
  • Unfortunately, the blow-your-own-ornament event will not take place this year.  The make-your-own flamework activity is also not happening. 

Many artists lost important selling opportunities in 2020 when art shows and fairs were cancelled. (For artists who want to participate, click here) As a result, we are expecting to recieve many high-quality items at discount prices, including glassware, pottery, wooden bowls and cutting boards, scarves and bags, jewelry and much more. Seconds can be excess inventory, experimental pieces, discontinued lines, or slightly flawed items. There are also plenty of firsts

NOTE:  Information on this page may change.  Please check back before you come to the Sale.

Volunteer

Snow Farm is a nonprofit residential craft school, one of only a handful similar places in the U.S. The Seconds Sale is Snow Farm's most important fundraiser of the year. Purchases at the Second Sale benefit both the artist and Snow Farm.

Many volunteers help throughout the sale, and we welcome anyone who would like to lend a hand, and get to know us better. Volunteers direct cars, wrap purchases, ring up sales, and restock merchandise as it sells. As a thank you, volunteers are invited to lunch in the cafe and receive a small discount on purchases during the day they volunteer.  Interested?  Email or call 413-268-3101.
