There are more reasons than ever to shop locally and small in Saucon Valley, and one of them is Charming Grace Boutique, which will celebrate its first anniversary of opening for business with a special store-wide sale on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24-25.
Everything in the store including all home decor, holiday decor, jewelry, accessories, bath and beauty products and candles will be discounted 25 percent.
There will be free refreshments and snacks and the first 25 customers each day of the sale will also receive a free candle from Hilltop Candle Company, another business owned by Charming Grace owners Deborah and Jay Valentin of Hellertown.
Hilltop Candle Company, which produces handcrafted soy candles, celebrated its second anniversary in September.
The company makes long-burning candles including seasonal scents such as Pinecones & Amber and Mulberry & Mistletoe, which are sold online and in the boutique.
Debbie describes the cozy, welcoming Charming Grace Boutique as a store where rustic and vintage are the predominant themes when it comes to the style of merchandise that is sold.
“My personal style and that of the store is what I consider ‘rustic vintage,’” she said. “If I wouldn’t wear it or have it in my home, I don’t carry it at the boutique. So I make sure everything I sell here is something unique and beautiful.”
“We are really excited to be part of such a tight-knit community this past year,” she added. “We have gotten lots of support locally at our boutique and also at our Hilltop Candle tent at the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market and Community Day.”
The store at 1053 Main St., Hellertown (across from Saucon Valley Manor) will be open Friday, Nov. 24 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The store’s regular hours are Thursday and Friday, 12 to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
