Free {NewNew} Swag Bag - Sneak preview!

When was the last time you got something for nothing? Like...a beautiful screen printed tote bag with free stuff and coupons inside?

(...yes, that's them below!)
(want to see them in the making? Check out the post "Getting Ready for the Spring Cavalcade")

We've done it again loyal shoppers! Over 40 amazing {NewNew} vendors are participating in this year's annual Spring Handmade Cavalcade. We have put together 100 (yes, 100!!) swag bags that contain handmade products, coupons and giveaways that will be free to the first 100 people through the door this Saturday at our event!
(...I heard that last year there was a line around the block!)

Say what? did hear me correctly. Free bag, free stuff. (and did I mention they were screen printed by hand?). We love you guys that much.

Keeping in {NewNew} style, each of the bags will be different and unique, just like us. You'll have to wait and see what you get - don't you love surprises?

So maybe your swag bag will have items in it from Leslie of AstorKnot, who makes cute tote bags....

or perhaps something from Martin, of AdornmentsNYC, who designs stunning jewelry?

Beth from BShorr Handmade, who designs knitwear, is contributing several gadget cozies!

Hop on over to our Spring Handmade Cavalcade website to learn more and to see a list of participating vendors!

When: Saturday May 7th (10am-5pm)
Where: 'Slate' in the Flatiron district of Manhattan
What: Handmade shopping, food, music, drinks and fun!!

...and, if you're not one of the first 100 lucky shoppers to receive a free swag bag, you'll still be eligible to win one of 5 raffle swag bags (with even more stuff inside!). You are eligible for one raffle entry for each purchase you make at the event - don't forget to hand in your ticket near the door for your chance to win. Good luck and happy shopping!
