Shopping for clothing can be like finding a needle in a haystack: even when you think you've found what you're looking for, you've actually only found a really shiny piece of hay. Tilt the odds of a successful fashion quest in your favor with today's Groupon: for $10, you get four admissions and four raffle tickets to The Find underground fashion market at Hughes Hangar on Saturday, December 3, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (a $40 value).
The Find fosters burgeoning fashion designers, exhibiting their ready-to-wear wears online and at local fashion events. The prewinter fashion fest will showcase more than 3,000 square feet of underground jewelry, handbag, shoe, and clothing designs for ticketholders or bootleggers who know the password to enter Hughes Hangar's speakeasy-inspired space. Throughout the day, more than 30 designers will consult with browsers to explain their creative philosophies and point out apt holiday presents for loved ones. Raffle tickets for the silent auction reward attendees with a bracelet made locally by De Petra jewelry, which conjures timeless style with hand-hammered brass and semiprecious stones instead of turquoise-encrusted time machines.
