Every year, collectors of Bauer Pottery eagerly await the Atwater Village studio's December sale of factory seconds. Beginning today, fans won't have to wait until the holidays, as the newly remodeled showroom will open to the public the first weekend of every month. A variety of seconds -- dinnerware, candlesticks, pitchers and other brightly colored trademark designs with minor defects or uneven glazing -- will be marked down as much as 60%. Purists interested only in first-quality pieces can place orders too. The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Sunday at 3051 Rosslyn St., Los Angeles; (888) 213-0800; www.bauerpottery.com.
