Mark Your Calendar: Modern Economy Sale

This Saturday, April 12, is the day for Modern Economy's highly anticipated yearly sample sale in San Francisco.

So if you're in the area, take a break from doing your taxes and go spend some of that anticipated refund. A few of the indie-designed goods you'll find there, at up to 70 percent off retail:

Allymoon prints

Dwell Studio bedding

Harry Allen objets

Perch ceramics

Petite Collage artwork

Sharon Spain pillows

Simrin textiles

Variegated pillows

The sale is in Fort Mason Center's Building A from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Pssst to my Stumptown homies -- Modern Economy is having another sale at Portland's Ace Hotel on July 19.)

Based on my experience at a previous Modern Economy sale, a few words of advice:

* Get there early -- as in, join the queue before the doors open. The place gets picked clean fast.

* Install your partner, friend, mother, etc. in the checkout line before it snakes all the way around the room. Otherwise, you'll be cooling your heels there for a good long time.

* Have fun and score some great deals!
