Hurricane Sandy & Mixed Bag Designs

Mixed Bag Designs may be headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, but we have many sales reps, fundraisers, customers, friends and family located up and down the East Coast. We first wanted to extend our thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the storm. Many of our staff and their families are currently without power and are only beginning to realize the full impact of the storm. Our primary interest is the safety and security of our Mixed Bag Designs team, our customers and their communities. Please be careful and stay safe.
