Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

Happy Wednesday, Smarty friends! Well, March did roar in like a lion after all, didn't it? Here's hoping you had the chance to enjoy the snow and make lots of snowmen and snow angels with the little ones. Now let's hope the snow goes away and school gets back in session (ha, ha!). I'll keep this short because there's lots going on this weekend, including consignment sales galore. We aim to please, so please let us know if we left off an event or sale worth mentioning by adding it in the comment section below. And always feel free to give us a heads-up on any upcoming events you would like to see featured.

Also, don't forget the Day Care Donation Drop-Off is still going on. If you have items you could donate, drop them off at Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches on Hanes Mall Blvd in WS this Friday, March 6 from 9:30 - 10 am.

Enjoy your week and happy shopping!
