Shepard Fairey who started by giving his art away via plastering billboards and electrical boxes with interesting images and sayings.Now he is a successful graphic artist whose work has been commissioned by rock bands, corporations, and shown in art galleries.

What's great about the Sample Sale is that even if you're a huge fan of his work, there's always something new (or old) that you might have never seen before. And it's sold at rock bottom prices. Tshirts for $5-10, pants for under $20, and jackets for under $40.

And it's nice to see the cool kids filling up the garbage bags with their booty that makes excellent Christmas gifts, although we usually end up keeping most of our purchases for ourselves.

One thing we really enjoyed snagging at the last sale was a few editions of Fairey's excellent hardbound magazine Swindle. Save up, get there early, and score. Shopping is your religion, after all, and money is your God.
