Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away, so it is time to think “More About ME and Less About YOU.”
Whiskers Vintage and Vinyl, a vintage store located in The Thought Lot, will be hosting a “More About ME, Less About YOU” Valentine’s Day Party on Feb. 3 from 6-8 p.m.
“Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays, simply for the frivolity of it,” said Hannah Nawa, owner of The Thought Lot and Whiskers Vintage and Vinyl. “The event is a great excuse to pamper yourself and take a moment to treat yourself and spend time with your friends, all while shopping at an event meant to cater to you.”
The “More About ME, Less About YOU” Valentine’s Day party will feature a flash sale of 50 percent off the entire Whiskers Vintage and Vinyl store. Vintage-inspired apparel, vinyl records and locally made gifts are some of the many items that are sold in Whiskers Vintage and Vinyl.
“I’m hoping that during the sale customers will be able to come in and find their perfect dress to go out in for Valentine’s Day,” Nawa said. “Whether they’re going out by themselves, with friends, with a significant other, or even just staying home, my hope is that they will be able to find a great outfit that will make them feel good at a discount.”
While the event is primarily catered to women and giving them the opportunity to indulge in some pre-Valentine’s Day pampering, Nawa said there is a treasure for all individuals within her store, and all are welcome to come shop and join in on the festivities.
“We offer men’s clothing and a great selection of gifts and records,” Nawa said. “This is also the perfect event to shop for your significant other for Valentine’s Day. If you aren’t sure what to get them, our staff will be more than welcome to help you select the perfect gift.”
Aside from the half-off sale in Whisker’s Vintage and Vinyl, the Valentine’s Day party will feature complimentary 10-minute chair massages provided by New Day Yoga and Wellness, makeovers and refreshments. There will also be local vendor items to purchase, including personalized DoTerra make-and-take perfumes, custom-made stamped jewelry, henna and body art, and wine from Castlerigg Wine Shop.
“I think this is a great event for Shippensburg University students because of the deep discounts and complimentary services and refreshments,” Nawa said. “It’s important for university students to be a part of the downtown community and economy, and I think that this is a great event for those who haven’t explored the town much before.”
