Need a gift for the public radio junkie in your life? We've got you covered.
We're throwing open our NPR Shop doors to you for the first time. The NPR Shop Warehouse Sale-a-bration will feature T-shirts, hats, CDs, books, radios and other exclusive NPR merchandise, deeply discounted — some as much as 70% off — along with many of the most popular items from the NPR Shop.
The NPR Shop will also raffle off autographed items on Friday and Saturday.
Meet Your NPR Favorites
In addition to shopping, the Sale-a-bration will give you a unique opportunity to meet some of your favorite NPR people and hear music and performances courtesy of NPR Music.
