Prepping For Promenade!

AllSpice_at_Holiday_TimeThe East Village Holiday Promenade, our neighborhood kickoff to the 2014 holiday season, is less than ten days away!

We love the festive atmosphere, the sparkly lights on the trees, the carolers and carriage rides, and we especially love hosting our Promenade guests (that’s YOU!) here at the shop.

This week, we’re getting everything ready, from dolling up the fustis (the olive oil and balsamic vinegar dispensers) and decorating the big front window, to making big batches of spicy nuts and baking literally hundreds of homemade cookies (see below).

If you’ve been to Promenade before, you’ll know that it’s a great way to get into a celebratory mood, with the bonus of giving you a head start on your holiday gift shopping. We’re stocked up on your favorite gift sets, and have some new boxed sets we know you’re going to love!

It’s also a perfect opportunity to get those hard-to-find ingredients for all of your Thanksgiving recipes, and your holiday baking.

If you haven’t already, please RSVP on our Holiday Promenade event page on Facebook. That way, we can keep you updated on any last-minute additions to the party plan!

We can’t wait to see you all next Friday evening, November 21, at Promenade!
