Spring 2011 Best Kept Secrets' Tour

Had enough of winter? Thinking spring? Good news: The spring tour bags are here!! Time to start planning your spring shopping (& saving) adventure throughout Lancaster County. You will love the varied mix of businesses in this season’s event (23 are new places, & we're pleased to announce that Vintage Chic is among the list again!)

*Tour bags make great Valentine’s gifts for friends & family (with the underlying promise of fun times together after the snow finally melts!!)
*Pick up your bag(s) early, as they sold out in the fall.
*Customers may reserve bags at our shop this spring. We'll hold them for up to 3 days. Call (717.354.6228) or email ( ahead & let us know when you'll be stopping by.

Dates: April 8-23

The 6th Lancaster County’s Best Kept Secrets Tour will feature shopping, food, & fun. While the tour list is part of the secret, the following types of businesses will be included: home furnishings, gift and craft stores, farm markets, cafes, galleries/studios, businesses in historic buildings, factory stores, a benefit/charity sale, nurseries & specialty businesses selling books, baked goods, even jewelry. The tour covers the whole county-from Knauers to Strasburg, Maytown to Honeybrook (each stop being no more than a 15 min. drive to the next.) Games, prizes, events, demonstrations, refreshments, special discounts & door prizes are available to tour-goers.

$6 per bag/tour participant. A portion of each bag sale this time will go directly to Welsh Mountain Medical & Dental Center, an organization providing free or reduced cost care to county children. Please note: only those with a “VIP” bracelet (included in the tour bag) will be able to earn tickets & prizes, attend special events, & receive discounts. If you’re traveling in a group, each guest will need his/her own bag in order to fully participate.

Within each tour bag are coupons & promotional items from participating businesses, a map, VIP bracelet, & tour guide with descriptions of each business. Also, you’ll receive a raffle ticket for visiting each tour business & an additional ticket for each place you make a purchase. These tickets enter you into the Shop & Win Game which will culminate in 5 drawings on May 11 for spectacular gift collections valued at over $1,100.

We hope to see you in the shop this month, where we are not only beginning to think spring, but are stocked with lots of sweet Valentine gifts & decor priced from $2. Treat that cabin fever with a little visit to Vintage Chic, & treat yourself to something irresistable for you & your Valentines!
