The long-running Bargain Hunting 101 brought together independent retailers and vendors from Portland and beyond, who offloaded samples and limited run clothing, art supplies, gardening accessories, and more at clearance prices. Traditionally held on Super Bowl Sunday, with a summer installment to supplement, organizers Angie Heiney, Julz Nally, and Jen Neitzel announced today that they are calling it quits, with no event planned for next month. (No apparent drama, just the usual "moving in a new direction" stuff). However, they have a proposal for you:
We will no longer be running the sale, but are interested and willing to sell some of the intellectual properties of this sale and at an affordable price: this would include, our mailing list, our contacts, the business name, the website, all of the information on the site and we'd even advise others on how to run the sale- answering questions and advising along the way and more.
This sale could be a great supplemental income source for anyone, but especially for an artist or business with product, because you can generate income by selling at the sale and you can also receive revenue as a sale organizer, as well. If there's anyone out there, either a former vendor or shopper who is interested in purchasing all or parts of our intellectual properties, please let us know and then we'll let you, the public, know what we find out.
In the meantime if you're looking for a big sale featuring local retailers, the PDX Collective Sale is still going strong.
