Back by popular demand! Saturday, June 20, for one day only, the Foscoe and Grandfather communities will host the third Home Decor Stirabout. Several businesses invite guests to stop in for open house events, where there will be door prizes, refreshments and one-day-only sales.
“We held this event for the first time in June 2014, and we were thrilled with the response we received,” said Susan Bracewell, operations manager at DeWoolfson Linens in Foscoe. “It was a great success and we are excited to bring it back this year. It is a bit like an art walk, and the idea is to visit these businesses on the same day, when they are all having special open house events. Each business is doing something different.”
