"It also provides a special evening of shopping when the shops are usually closed, which many of the patrons really appreciate!"

Participating shops include consignment and home decor shops; bookstores; food establishments; and others.

"Our customers mark their calendars for this special evening," said LBA Vice President Betty Lewis Smith, the owner of Embellish, a specialty home decor and gift shop on Lakeside Avenue. "This is our chance to show our appreciation to our customers with a special night of special treats."


Participating businesses include: Chocolate Cravings; Church Mouse Books; Consignment Connection; Eclectic Stuff; Embellish; Ex Libris Books; Feathernesters Tea Room; Keep Good Company; Kids Grow; McAdoos' Vintage Thrift; My Closet - Your Treasures; Pass It On!; Robin's Nest Antiques; Save Recess!
