This Friday during September’s First Friday Art Walk, we are excited to feature AU Bags in the Museum Store as part of our ongoing series of First Friday Trunk Shows. We want to give you the opportunity to meet the artists, designers, and craftspeople, who are featured in the Store and to see the full spectrum of their work.
Located in Portland, AU Bags makes a variety of totes, daybags, weekender, and toiletry bags. Local designer Erin Flett designed many of the surface patterns on the bags—including Maine coast inspired patterns Island Edge and Worn Current, both sold in the Store.
Owner John Milburn will be here with LOTS of bags, including some that we don’t always sell in the Museum Store! For a sampling of AU, Bags currently available at the Store, check out the products online.
Upcoming Trunk Shows include South Street Linen (October), Mia Kanazawa and her amazing felted puppets, Tandem Glass, and CHART Metalworks. This is a great opportunity to meet these talented and local vendors in person!
