girls night out this friday
This year’s theme for Girls Night Out on Friday, Sept. 28 is the “Roaring 20s.” This is the Downtown Quincy Merchants only fundraiser and all the money raised from selling boas this year — which are available at most of the stores — will be used to continue beautifying the downtown area. This extremely popular annual event begins at 4 p.m. at Shear Pleasure in East Quincy with the next stop at Papa’s Donuts before continuing over the hill where you can enjoy the rest of the evening’s festivities. Costume contest entries are made at Shear Pleasure and Bargain Boutique. Winner gets a huge gift basket full of merchandise valued at over $500.
first birthday party saturday
It’s the first birthday party for the Blue Goose Gallery of Artists on Main Street in Chester. Owner Debbie Groesser invites everyone to stop by her studio across from Almanor Flooring Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for refreshments and chances to win lots of great prizes!
gift show shoppers…
Holly Patton at The Finishing Touch in Quincy just returned from Seattle, Wash., where she attended a huge West Coast gift show. She ordered lots of great gifts and personal items for the store, which have already begun arriving, so be sure to stop by the store (next to Mountain Building Supply) and check it out!
Sterling Sage owners Bink and Josh Huddleston ventured to San Francisco recently to attend yet another huge gift show showcasing their store’s product lines. They bought lots of items that will arrive in October, just in time for fall and the upcoming holidays. Josh did mention that they made a special purchase of beautiful diamonds in assorted colors. I have no doubt custom jewelry designer Jeff Titcomb would love to help you create that special ring, necklace, earring or pendant.
