If we weren't already excited enough for next week's Small Business Saturday, we now have more reason to be. If this is your first rodeo, Small Business Saturday has happened every year since it was conceived in 2010, as a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We were so grateful for everyone's support last year, and couldn't wait to plan some special happenings for this year's. We will be serving apple cider and handing out FREE tote bags to the first 10 shoppers to make a purchase, and now we will also have Kelly from Elizabeth Street Cosmetics joining us to give customers "lipovers" using her amazing all natural glosses and lip sticks! This is your perfect opportunity to get a jump start on your holiday shopping and we'll be offering FREE gift wrapping to save you the hassle!
Kelly's love affair with lipstick began when she was in junior high, spending afternoons at her Grandpa's pharmacy trying on all of the glosses he carried. Later, after working for years in the cosmetic industry, she began dreaming about creating a small niche brand of her own, and set out to design a specialty lip range using natural ingredients for a well edited color collection with an urban feel. Thus, Elizabeth Street Cosmetics was born!
We are so excited to have her in store and working her magic on our amazing customers. Each lip color application will come with a personalized lipcolor chart made by Kelly herself, so don't miss this opportunity to learn some valuable skills straight from the source!
So save the date and come celebrate! Small Business Saturday happens the Saturday after Thanksgiving (November 28th) and we will be hosting this special Holiday Lip Bar from 2-5pm. Come by, sip some warm cider and get your gloss on :)
