Despite the frigid temperatures, we had a great little shopping trip along Park Slope's Fifth Avenue yesterday. Unfortunately, we didn't buy all of the Christmas Gifts that we needed to buy because we spent too much time looking around each store and speaking with the merchants. So, we might have to do this again on Monday! Anyway, here is what we found, so far:
We heard that Park Slope Eye was having a "50% off all sunglasses" sale as part of the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID's Snowflake Specials.
Mark fell in love with this pair of sunglasses but he really needs to shop for others before he can consider buying them.
Pink Olive had some beautiful things for children and babies and their Snowflake Special is "Free gift wrapping and Pink Olive tote bag with a $100 purchase."
Mark bought this picture frame for his Great Aunt at Bob and Judi's Coolectibles (217 Fifth Avenue). If you shop on Friday, with any purchase, you receive a $5 gift certificate good thru Dec 24th!
Scaredy Kat is always a good destination for gift shopping. Their Snowflake Special: Spend $50 in their shop and get a free pair of specs (modeled here by Mark).
We got hungry and decided to eat at Bonnie's Grill. Yeah, we usually get burgers and wings at Bonnie's but we were intrigued by the special "Brussel Sprout Soup." Believe it or not, it was delicious (as you can see by the empty bowl, above).
Serene Rose and Razor don't have an official Snowflake Special, but this deal looked really good. We'll have to come back to this on Monday.
We always love to shop at Brooklyn Mercantile. If you mention the Snowflake Special, you'll receive free hand made gift tags with your purchase!
Well, that's as far as we got. Yes, it looks like we'll have to finish up this weekend or on Monday. Stay tuned! In the meantime, take a look at the Snowflake Specials and Shop Local!
