storefront saturday bleu hanger 500

Storefront Saturday returns this year on Saturday, April 15, noon-5 p.m. This Decatur shopping event includes raffles, prizes, snacks, specials and oh-so-much more at participating businesses.

Twenty-three shops are participating this spring (that’s the most we’ve ever had!): Aimee Jewelry and Fine Art Gallery | Bleu Hanger | Boutique Karma | Coco + Mischa | Decatur Bikes | Decatur Square Framing and Gallery | The Great Frame Up | Greene’s Fine Foods | Homegrown | Kismet Jewelers | Little Shop of Stories | Natural Body | Pure Barre | Salon Red Kids | Solidcore | Sq/Ft | Squash Blossom | Treehouse Kid & Craft | Tres Jolie | Trinity Mercantile & Design | Vivid Boutique | Wild Oats and Billy Goats | Worthmore Jewelers

Make a purchase at a Storefront Saturday shop, bring your receipt to the tent on the square, and enter to win a giant gift basket filled with over $500 in goodies from local shops. You can enter every time you make a purchase at a participating shop, which means you have up to 23 chances to enter. Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the items going into the raffle basket. We’ll reveal more later this week on Facebook.
