Sidewalk Sale

Spring is finally here! Let the search begin for the perfect pair of puddle-splashing galoshes, the ever-functional-yet-trendy trench coat, and colorful cardigans that would make a bag of Skittles jealous. To help satisfy your inner shopaholic without having to worry about next month's credit card statement. We've been waiting to peruse through the spring bargains at the Third Annual Old City Sidewalk Sale & Stroll!

From Front to Sixth Streets and Vine to Walnut Streets, the always fashionable Old City will be celebrating spring this coming Saturday and Sunday, 11am-6pm, for a two-day bargain-shopping, art gallery-hopping, and live music-bopping event! Over 50 merchants are participating at the Sidewalk Sale & Stroll, so be prepared to indulge in coveted discounts!

Third Street Habit, located at 134 North Third Street, will be offering 25% off beachwear, sandals and summer vintage. Down the street at Sazz Vintage, shoppers can enjoy a discount rack of men's and women's clothing priced at an irresistible five dollars! Meanwhile, the fabulous Three Sirens Boutique will be hosting a trunk show of locally designed jewelry.

In addition to spring acquisitions for your wardrobe, the Sidewalk Sale & Stroll also presents the perfect opportunity to stock up on other necessities for spring. The Papery, which SnapGlow.tv visited for Mothers' Day gift ideas, is presenting shoppers with 50% merchandise outside and 10% off all personalized stationary orders made during the event! Moko, the organically-inclined salon and spa located at 55 North 3rd Street, is offering a sale on European Skin Care Line Brown Earth products as well as 50-70% off an assortment of their eco-friendly soaps and bath oils. And, for that special pup in your life, be sure to stop by Bonejour for 25% off all nonfood pet items, as well as storewide clearance.

All in all, the Old City Sidewalk Sale & Stroll looks to be the perfect way to kick off spring (-- and hopefully in a fabulous new pair of shoes from one of the vendors)!
