RAGS Boutique- Online Sale 2021

Beautiful jewelry, creative clothing, and distinctive accessories from more than 55 artists of local, regional, and national acclaim will be offered for sale at the RAGS boutique-style show. This 27th annual RAGS Wearable Art Sale and gallery competition will take place online March 14-21, 2021, and an exclusive presale will be available to donors March 12–13. Besides its “Marketplace” sale, RAGS also features a juried gallery of one-of-a-kind items, with the winners in several categories earning cash awards. Artist give one third of sales to RAGS to benefit the YWCA’s life-saving domestic violence intervention programs.  

Run by an all-volunteer guild and supported by local businesses and individuals, 100 percent of RAGS proceeds go directly to the YWCA.

“What makes RAGS a distinctive event? The blend of art, fashion, shopping, and fundraising for an important cause,” explains RAGS chair Mandi Webster-Martin. “Domestic violence is an all too familiar issue in our community. All of us — loyal shoppers, inspired artists and committed volunteers — believe that it is important to fund programs offering hope to families affected by domestic violence. The RAGS event offers an opportunity to support not only the YWCA, but the artists as well. Our artists are small business owners and many of them rely on events as their main source of income. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many events in 2020 were canceled. 2021 in-person events remain uncertain, so we are happy we can offer this online alternative.”
