Modern Economy a recurring sale selling samples and overstocked goods of independent designers, which until now has taken place in San Francisco and Los Angeles, will hold its first-ever online sale, giving all of you budget-minded design enthusiasts a piece of the action. The sale will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 8, with "doors" opening at 9:00 a.m. (PDT). To access the sale, go here. The last time Modern Economy came to San Francisco, I returned home with buckets of fab home décor accessories, including potholders by Deadly Squire, pillowcases by Dermond Peterson, ceramic plates by Rae Dunn, and tea towels by Tikoli. I'll definitely be hitting up this affordable modern design sale; maybe I'll see you there.
