Empty your Easter baskets! You’ll need lots of room to carry home your goodies from this Saturday’s Shop Hop Scavenger Hunt, sponsored by the shops of Hampden.
That’s right – egg hunts aren’t just for the kids anymore. On Mar. 23, boutiques near The Avenue will offer customers the chance to have a little fun while they browse for treasures.
Here’s how it works: when customers enter a participating store, they will select from a basket an egg that contains a clue and special offer from a Hampden business. Using the clue, customers will find the business, where they can then apply the offer to receive a discount on their purchases. Afterward, customers can select another egg with a new clue and offer and go in search of the next business.
Among the shops participating are 9th Life, Alchemy, Avenue Antiques and The Ideal, Charlotte Elliott and the Book Store Next Door, DoubleDutch Boutique, Hanging on a Whim, Have Fun Be Lucky, In the Details, Kiss and MakeUp, LovelyYarns, Mend, Parisian Flea, Party Dress, Studio C Jewelry & Boutique, and Wholly Terra. Additional shops will likely join the shop hop by Saturday, and customers can call their favorite shops to find out if they are taking part.
