The first 50 supporters to make a purchase at the sale will receive a FREE limited edition, screen printed tote bag! This is our way of thanking those who support local small business. According to the San Francisco Retail Diversity Study (May 2007) conducted by Civic Economics, diverting just 10% of purchases from national chain stores to locally owned businesses - would, each year, create 1,300 new jobs and yield nearly $200 million in incremental economic activity.
