You love them. We love them. We're always thrilled to announce our Seconds & Sample sale. Here's the scoop about why we hold these sales, what you can expect to find... and what on earth a second or sample even means in the KK world.
// Why do we host these sales?
We make a lot of dinnerware for restaurants, and we typically end up with overruns from every order—not to mention we have ridiculously high standards. When our seconds pile up to a certain point—we need to clear some space in the studio. We love opening the showroom doors to everyone in Austin who interacts with our work in restaurants around town, and know there’s a great opportunity to bring some of that work home.
// What does it mean when a piece is a second or sample?
Sometimes it’s an overrun, sometimes it’s a small cosmetic inconsistency in the glaze. It could be that a piece didn’t come out as we had planned, or it’s something we were testing and decided not to use. It could also be that we’re clearing out an older version of our work. Either way, you’ll walk away with a quality piece. Absolutely nothing heads out the door that we wouldn’t be proud to have in our own home.
// What kind of deals can you look forward to?
Pricing is usually up to 50% off. Get what you’ve been eyeing and take more home.
// Any cool offerings you can preview for us?
We’ll have a good number of cups and mugs, which are always the first to go. There will be plenty of plates, so you can stock up.
// What about the folks who aren't in Austin?
UPDATE: Our June Sale will be ONLINE ONLY and that means that we'll be shipping nationwide. You can also order online and choose Store Pickup for Curbside Pickup. Reminder that the Showroom is closed to the public so if you're picking up, please follow the directions in your pickup email, remain in your car and wear your mask. Thanks!
(here's the previous response for previous times) This is always tough. Austin is a big part of our studio and our success, and we love being able to open the doors to everyone in the city. While this sale is for our in-person customers, we will be offering more sale options online and through Instagram in 2020, so make sure you’re following us on Instagram and signed up for the Porcelain List to get the latest updates.
Thanks for supporting us—see you soon!
