One of my favorite days of the year comes tomorrow– Thursday November 29.  SHOP THE BLOCK  is Reading’s annual downtown holiday shopping extravaganza.  This year is the STB 10th anniversary and over 20 businesses are participating in festivities from 5 to 9pm.   Free transportation provided around the block (thank you Sanborn House!), entertainment, food, and specials at many of the participating retailers, salons, and restaurants.  Enter to win a fabulous Shop the Block Gift Basket valued at over $1000.  Raffle proceeds will benefit the Reading North Reading Chamber of Commerce Holiday Lighting Fund.  Look for my favorite acapella group TALK TO THE HAND at Sense of Wonder starting around 7:15.  Hope to see you there!

Hey! Did you hear the one about the gift store owner who locked herself out of her own store after hours, in the dark, with no ID, no phone, and no coat??  Thank goodness I’m so MELLOW….yup, it happened…this very night.
