Lots of Local DC Shopping fun coming up!

December 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

This is definitely one of the most wonderful times of the year! Not only do I love to shop but I especially love to get the people in my life presents that will make them smile! When I can get deals on them and stay within my budget, I love it even more!

This weekend there are some great shopping events popping up in the city. The outdoor Downtown Holiday Market opens tomorrow, Dec. 3 from 12-8pm and runs through Dec. 23rd. If you get off at the Metro Center or Gallery Place stops you’re just a few feet away from 8th and F Sts. where the center of the action is! There will be more than 50 exhibitors showcasing crafts, jewelry, art, clothing and more along with entertainment and food vendors.

This Sunday, check out Merriment in Georgetown from 2-5pm with treats for the little ones (pictures with Santa, elves running a muck and free horse and buggy rides) as well as lots of shopping fun for mom and dad. You can check out all of the deals on their website here: http://www.merrimentingeorgetown.com/store.html. BUT, let me just highlight some of my fav finds:

1. Coach-25% off your purchase! 2. O Salon-receive a FREE treatment ($40 value) 3. Papyrus-30% off your purchase (Christmas cards, anyone?!)

And last but not least I take you to one of my favorite boutique’s in Old Town Alexandria, Treat (mostly I love them because I can fit into their clothes and they often have champagne and cupcakes!). Their Holiday Open House is on Thursday, Dec. 9, from 5-8pm. Expect to nibble on treats while you browse, pick a hidden discount from under their holiday tree and get free wrapping! You also get a free gift with any purchase, which who knows what it is but knowing them I’m sure it’ll be worthwhile.
