The good people at Earnest Sewn know that times are tough. Their solution? Sell cheaper stuff and throw a few parties, of course! On December 2nd, the Earnest Sewn store on Washington launches "Recession Proof," a back-room installation filled with goods all for less than $50, including candles from Malin & Goetz, Dents gloves, Earnest Sewn scarves, Case & Sons knives, Moleskin notebooks, Barbour hats, 80%20 shoes, Shades of Griege shirts, Digby & Iona jewelry, Billy Kirk accessories, and pieces from the Quail. Plus? They're holding three shopping events (details after the jump) during which you can get 40% off Earnest Sewn goods (and 20% off everything else) while you enjoy the free refreshments being served. And (if you can believe there's more), they're holding a canned food drive in conjunction with the Food Bank for New York City and New York City Cares, so you get an extra 1% off third-party merchandise for every can you bring in (up to 20% off). Now if only they could lower the regular price of their jeans, they could really pack the store, and not just for the free drinks and cute candles.
The events will take place Tuesday, December 2nd, Tuesday, December 9th, and Tuesday, December 16th from 7pm - 9pm. All are welcome, and refreshments will be served. The "Recession Proof" back room installation will be open to the public from December 2nd to January 2nd during normal store hours.
