Now Clear This: 5 Winter Clearance Deals You Can’t Miss

End-of-season sales mean big savings on home decor, stationery, jewelry, holiday essentials, and more.

It’s that time of year again—Winter Clearance! Our semi-annual sale has returned, bringing with it unbeatable prices on dozens (and dozens) of art-inspired items and gifts. But where can you get the best bang for your buck? Find out in our roundup below. 

1. Holiday Cards


The holidays may be behind us, but in 11 or so months, it’ll be time to start thinking about holiday greeting cards all over again. Why not stock up now on art- and artist-themed holiday cards while the prices are unbelievably low? Our seasonal cards feature details of artworks from The Met collection and are sure to be just as appreciated by your friends and family next Christmas as they were this past Christmas.

2. Ornaments 


Similarly, since Christmas ornaments will once again be topping shopping lists in November and December, consider buying some artistic baubles now to save yourself the trouble later on. (If you haven’t yet put away your Christmas decorations, you can easily pack up these new purchases with the rest of your holiday decor.) Because our highly collectible art ornaments have been masterfully adapted from original works in the Museum’s collection, they also make great “just-because” gifts that can be used year-round for decoration.

Silver Mesh Chalcedony Necklace

3. Jewelry 


Clearance jewelry is another area you’ll definitely want to explore, especially if you’re on the hunt for art jewelry and watches, amulet necklaces, or drop earrings. The Met Store offers classic gold and gemstone pieces as well as on-trend silver designs. And you won’t believe how deep some of these discounts go. Whether you need an inexpensive gift (Valentine’s Day is just around the corner…) or want to treat yourself to some earrings but don’t want to break the bank, you’ll find plenty of affordable pieces here.

Monet Scarf

4. Scarves 


Spring is on the horizon, which is why checking out the scarves and shawls section of our Clearance sale is a must. We have yards and yards of elegantly patterned art scarves in an array of incredibly wearable colors. And you won’t want to miss our floral scarves, fashioned from fabrics such as silk, wool, and velvet. You may also recognize some of your favorite artworks by artists like Claude Monet, Louis C. Tiffany, and Van Gogh, among others.

2021 Art Calendar

5. Calendars 


Sure, we’re already a couple of weeks into the new year, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to pick up a beautifully illustrated 2021 art calendar. And at a fraction of the original price, who really minds missing a few weeks anyway? Even if you’re not in the market for a new calendar, you can always use the high-quality reproductions from our wall or engagement calendars for other artistic purposes—decoupage, scrapbooking, framing, you name it.

Included among our marked-down calendars are Advent calendars. These unique and whimsical calendars are undated—and reusable—so take advantage of the low prices now and be ready to count down to Christmas this coming December.
