Don’t know how it happened, but next month HOME will be turning one! It’s been quite a ride and one that I hope I can stay on for a while longer. Since opening the shop, I’ve come to love my neighborhood so much more. I love the new friends I’ve made, recognizing people on the street that have stopped into the shop, seeing the same people walking by with their dogs, having neighbors stop by with local gossip. Having the chance to meet and get to know my neighbors has been one of the most rewarding aspects of being a shop owner. I hope that I continue to meet more and that both new and old friends will come by on Nov. 9th to celebrate with us at HOME! I also thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to help raise money for Philabundance – an organization that is doing their part to end hunger in our community.
It’s going to be an awesome night and there’ll be a few guests helping us celebrate:
– Kim from Manayunk Calligraphy – she’ll be doing on the spot calligraphy prints (give her a quote and she’ll write it in calligraphy script – $10-$20/piece and a portion of her sales will be donated!)
– Outlaw Candy – a Philly based jewelry line that will be showcasing handcrafted leather cuffs
– The Tot Cart and Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck – both trucks will be parked in front of the shop and serving up delicious tator tots and burgers all night (and they’re awesome ’cause they’ll also be donating a portion of their sales)
And you’re not going to want to miss the raffles! HOME will be raffling off gift certificates and items from local businesses including Rinse Salon, Occasionette, Lostine, Hip & Thrifty, Behressentials and more! As it gets closer, I’ll post more information about the prizes. Raffle tickets are $2 each and they’ll be available at the party. 100% of the ticket sales will be donated to Philabundance as well as a percentage of our overall sales that night.
Please RSVP here. Can’t wait to celebrate with you all!!!!
