Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
In times like these, who doesn’t like to get stuff for free? Lucky for you, the Racked Giveaway Extravaganza is underway. Until we run out of merch, while supplies last, for a limited time only, etc. etc., check this space every day for new chances to win. We're cleaning out the sample closet, hitting up our favorite designers for gratis goods and will be sending it all your way. EVERYTHING MUST GO. 'Tis the season, friends.
We're giving away a sneak peek goodie bag of what's to come at the Unique Los Angeles Independent Design & Gift Sale this Saturday, December 13, and Sunday, December 14 from 11am-7pm in the Penthouse of the California Market Center (110 East 9th Street, Downtown). Two hundred vendors are coming out to offer shoppers great deals, plus DIY Etsy lab, live screenprinting, LA Weekly lounge, and special eco, kids, and emerging artists sections.
The swag above includes super-soft tees from Black Hearts Brigade and Spiders & Caviar, a Balsam & Cedar Illume candle, an organic catnip fortune cookie from Jake & Micah, 'I Love Me' pink and black earrings, six Pamela Barsky 'I'm pretty sure this isn't your bag' luggage tags, Eleven Eleven cardholders, and cards from The Poster List and Sonja Rasula Design—all in an eco shopping bag.
To enter to win, email us the most unique gift—creative, exclusive, bizarre, we want to hear it—you've ever given or received. Contest ends tomorrow at 10am.
