ORS Flannel Friday 2015

We’re celebrating “Shop Local” the entire weekend after Thanksgiving:

Want a good excuse to wear your favorite flannel shirt? Or to start your holiday shopping with some great deals? Or to support your local Montpelier businesses? Well here’s three: Flannel Friday, Sock Saturday, and Cider Monday!

Friday, Nov. 27th – Flannel Friday: Get $10 off your purchase of $50 or more when you wear flannel on Flannel Friday! Plus, check out other awesome in-store specials at The Shoe Horn, Onion River Sports, and Onion River Kids all day long!

Saturday, Nov. 28th – Sock Saturday: On Langdon Street, Small Business Saturday is also Sock Saturday! Take 20% off ALL Socks at all three of our stores! Stock up on stocking stuffers from Darn Tough, Smartwool, and more! And don’t forget to visit our Multi-Artist Trunk Show happening at the same time!

Sunday, Nov. 30th – Cider Monday: Instead of staring at a blue screen until you’re cross-eyed on Cyber Monday, come back to each of our locations for Cider Monday – enjoy hot mulled cider and delicious donuts from Cold Hollow Cider Mill while you shop!

Here in Montpelier, we do cozy and local much better than many other places on earth. We also like to hang out with our families and friends, sleep in, and relax over the holiday weekend. That’s why we call it “Flannel Friday” instead of “Black Friday”. It sounds much better that way and it feels better to shop at stores like Onion River Sports; unique, locally-owned shops with great gifts for everyone on your list. There aren’t competitive sales that will have you leaping up from Thanksgiving dinner and strapping on your elbow pads and running shoes, but there are some great things waiting for you if you want to take it easy and enjoy the weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us! See you at the sales!


Muilti Artist Trunk Show

What better way to celebrate Small Business Saturday than a showcase of some of our favorite local artists at The Shoe Horn? Join us Saturday, November 28 for our Multi-Artist Trunk Show, featuring jewelry from Jen Bauser and from Anne Darrow of Luca Designs! Stop by and explore their beautiful selections of jewelry, buy directly from the artisans or from our regular in-store stock, and meet Anne and Jen, who will be here at the store all day long!

Anne Darrow of Luca Designs from Worcester creates handmade jewelry to inspire gratitude, reflection, and happiness. Her work includes simple and elegant rings, earrings, and necklaces in silver and stone.

Rustic Bohemian meets mid-century modern in the work of renowned Stowe jeweler Jennifer Bauser, whose work has been featured in galleries across the country. In addition to the powder coat pieces found currently at The Shoe Horn, Jen will be bringing one-of-a-kind silver pieces to Saturday’s show.

Find the perfect piece for yourself, and original, handmade gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list at our pop-up holiday market. Just one more reason to shop local Thanksgiving weekend!
