There's still time to shop & save downtown!

Tired of the mall crowds and traffic and hassle- you can finish your shopping in the Downtown stores with a bit less hustle- and a lot less rude!
Right now you can save 25% on select Vera Bradley items at The Polka Dot Zebra! If you're looking for some last minute items- Lisa has some good choices apart from Vera Bradley-- Tyler candles in holiday scents and jewelry.
The Verandah is running 50% off remaining holiday merchandise- that sale will end with this weekend- and Sheila and Beth will be closed until after New Year.
I had a call yesterday from someone downtown who was wondering if anyone in town had Trapp Candles since Inspirations closed- (the customer had come from Wilmington for them) The answer is YES- Willa's on Norwood St (Hwy 117) has them, and they have a good selection of fragrances.
Seems not a lot of people know that the Shoe Store and Hospital on NE Railroad St has started carrying Carhart for Women-
It's Thursday- One Peacock Place Ltd will be open- ( I swear I don't know how Linda keeps the schedule she does between her job and the shop!) If you are stuck for a gift idea- it's a great place to look- The Greenleaf line of diffusers and oils- pandora jewelry- if you are luck enough to have someone on your list who has Onesoles- than get them a top!
I was in The Mustard Seed the other day- they have sold a lot of their Christmas Catalog merchandise- but still had a decent selection of Christmas music and gift items. They will be open Christmas Eve from 10-4. I saw one High School Musical cd - (it was in the window) and I think there was one of the new Mannheim Steamroller cd's left after I got mine.
Don't forget Wallace Drug if you are looking for something- but don't know what- their selection of figurines and dolls and men's gifts is great- along with a nice selection of Christmas this year- and Colonial Candles.
If you need an outfit- check out Lillies Boutique! She had some great red outifits this year!
The Treasure House has a pretty selection of oil burners, and some really unique cloisonne ornaments. They have a nice selection of charms and sterling silver jewelry and some great coin sets.
Of course Evans Jewelers has a wonderful selection of jewelry and watches....And if you don't know what to get someone- you can't go wrong with a Christopher Radko ornament from Cavenaughs.
