Little Boxes

It’s almost Little Boxes time! Can you believe it?! We hope you all have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow and then we hope to see you for Little Boxes! There are 170 participating local shops and there are some seriously amazing prizes! All of the shops will be open extended hours on Friday & Saturday, from 10-7. You can pick up a map at any of the shops… make a purchase and receive a stamp on your map. If you show your stamp from one shop to another you get a 10% discount. You can also fill out a raffle ticket at each shop (no purchase necessary) & you can earn bonus raffle tickets by collecting extra stamps on your map. Prizes this year include an ipad, a stay at Hotel Deluxe, an ice cream party from Ruby Jewel, and over 50 gift certificates (ranging from $25 to $250!). There will also be a $600, $400 & $200 shopping spree to your favorite Little Box up for grabs!!!

Something new and exciting has arrived at Porch Light…hand-blown glass objects! They’re crafted in Rhode Island and are filled with natural treasures…. bits of driftwood, seashells, moss, feathers, pine cones or charred fragments of maps and love letters. They’d make a great conversation piece on your coffee table or would fit perfectly in your curio cabinet. Available in two sizes for just $42 and $46 each. (1st & 2nd photo: Porch Light.
