First of all, we must acknowledge that Santa - SANTA! - arrives in Salem in his traditional manner, atop the Hawthorne Hotel, on Friday, December 2nd at 5:30 PM. Bundle up the kids and get ye to the Common for this festive welcome.
And then there are two festive and fabulous Holiday Open House shopping events that will help the ladies look fantastic, and give guidance to Mr. Claus and anyone else looking to successfully navigate a season of shopping for one or more women!
J. Mode on Front Street is celebrating Black Friday with Jenny Johnson, host of the popular show TV Diner, from 6-8pm on Friday, December 2. They will be presenting the Alex & Ani Holiday Collection, and 10% of sales December 2-5 will be donated by J. Mode to HAWC. If you haven't seen the Alex & Ani Bangles, you should. They're very cool, great gifts, at a perfect price point to buy one or many.
Rouge Cosmetics is celebrating their seriously glamorous annual holiday open house. There will be make-up, skin-care and hair tips from the professionals, and free gifts wtih purchase. Register to win prizes, including a Rouge basket and a gift certificate to the Caudalie Spa in New York City! Rouge asks for a $5 donation, which goes to Girl's Inc. of Lynn.
