Throughout the year, some pieces don't make the cut to be included in an order due to a blemish, texture, or color inconsistency. But hey, they need homes too! Every year, we open up our studio to sell these beautiful misfits at deep discounts.
"What is a…"
Second: A “second quality” piece (i.e right below first quality). These are pieces we produce throughout the year that have a slight flaw but are still perfectly functional. They may be slightly different in color or glossier than intended- they might also have iron spots or a thumbprint. We discount these pieces heavily, and they are a great way to start your own Haandmade home.
Overstock: In the course of a production run, we will often make more pieces than needed. They might be in a specific or custom color for a hotel or restaurant, and we keep them around to sell during this sale. They are discounted and can be a great chance to buy some of our more unique pieces like soy sauce pourers, small share plates, etc.
One-offs: Unique, custom pieces and prototypes made for clients or by us to try out a fun idea. These are always really popular and sell out quickly- who knows, someday they might be worth something as a unique bit of Haand history!
