Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

Happy Wednesday! Before we jump into the weekend line-up, don't forget that Paper Sassy is holding its 2nd Annual Holiday Affair tomorrow (November 5) from 5 pm to 9 pm at its Kernersville store location. This is a not-to-miss event! You'll remember we profiled Paper Sassy and I told you it's my newest passion. Well, this passion is still hot - especially with the discounts it's offering!

Tomorrow night will be an evening of shopping, prizes, desserts and joyful music. Paper Sassy Owner Devora is offering $5 off to everyone – and an additional $5 if you bring a friend! All you have to do is print off this blog with the coupon pictured to the right, spend $25 or more, and you'll receive these discounts. Plus, as a Triad Smarty Pants reader, Paper Sassy will offer you 10% off your first visit! How can you pass this up? From fine stationary and gifts to everything from personalized invitations, envelopes, and letterhead to planners, bags and signature items like dry-erasable magnetic bulletin boards known as Magulletins, you'll be way ahead in your holiday shopping! Stock up, Smarties! (Note: The store will be closed today to prepare for this event, and will open on November 5 at 5 pm for the party). So simple! So sassy! We'll see you there!

To get the skinny on the rest of the weekend, read on!
