MSA Marketplace Anniversary Celebration
November 1-11, 2021

This November, the MSA is marking two anniversaries: the one-year anniversary of the MSA Marketplace (November 11), and the five-year anniversary of Museum Store Sunday (November 28)!

To commemorate these milestones, we're celebrating Monday, November 1 through Thursday, November 11 with vendor specials on the MSA Marketplace and fun prize giveaways to Marketplace buyers throughout the event.

  • MSA Marketplace Vendor Specials: Over 40 of our MSA vendors are offering discounts and other specials on the MSA Marketplace for this anniversary celebration! Browse the list of specials here, and get ready to take advantage of these specials during the event. (Be sure to add "Apply MSA Marketplace Anniversary Special" in the notes section when you place your order.)
  • Prize Giveaways: During the event, we'll be drawing winners at random to win a special edition box of 12 Blackwing x Museum Store Sunday pencils! (Buyers must place an order on the MSA Marketplace sometime during November 1-11 to be entered to win.)

We hope you join us November 1-11 to shop the MSA Marketplace, celebrate these two anniversaries with vendor specials and prizes, and support the MSA! Make sure you're registered on the MSA Marketplace and for Museum Store Sunday.
