To our Seattle and Portland Sample Sale community,
In light of recent developments, we want to acknowledge the importance of hopefulness and that change is possible. Black Lives Matter, Defund the Police and Invest in Communities.
Since March we’ve been working to support our company in the best way we can while observing the global pause to assess, correct mistakes, and realign priorities.
Like you, we’ve been doing a lot. More work than we were doing before and so little of that labor is the way we make our living. We design, manufacture and sell clothing and we do this differently than other companies. Our Sample Sales make that abundantly, poetically and sometimes comically clear. These events are space for contemplation and connection and at the same time our company relies on the income they provide.
We’ve redesigned the event this year to observe Phase 2 guidelines for retail. This will create a secure environment to shop an assortment of Prairie Underground and Womxn’s Rites clothing at 50-70% off. We think it will be pleasurable, comforting and super-efficient. We hope you will visit us at some point during the four-day event. If it goes well we may repeat it in August.
We’re also highlighting two other ways to shop with no risk of exposure.
For you out-of-towners interested in accessing our sample sale, our Posher Dan works in our warehouse to offer Sample Sale garments all year round on Poshmark @P_Underground.
And for a limited time, we will be offering selected styles at 40%-50% off retail on prairieunderground.com so sign up for our mailing list to be notified when this goes live! If you’d like to sign up receive notice of our e-commerce sales and infrequent updates click this link.
