Local shops are offering great savings on summer merchandise as they clear up floor space for fall items. Last week, I mentioned a sale at Dolce Designs, and here’s another discount event worth checking out.
Strawberry Fields Flowers & Finds kicked off their Summer Clearance Sale last week. Select items are 50 percent off, including ocean-themed tea towels, decorative match boxes by PPD and cocktail napkins from 1 Hr. These make great Labor Day Weekend hostess gifts and super additions to end-of-season décor and parties. And there’s a whole lot more.
Kitchen towels titled “Catch of the Day” are decorated with lively painted lobsters. Designed by Pamela Cassidy Designs, they’re a steal at $6 apiece. Twelve-packs of citronella votives by Tag are on sale for $5.25. Imagine bug-free nights for this bargain price.
Don’t miss out on the Bobbles, either. Strawberry Fields has the large and small varieties, and at half off, it’s a great time to stock up on these filtering water bottles for back-to-school needs. Also on sale are darling food mats for dogs and cats. Made of oilcloth by Modern June, these wipeable, vintage patterned mats are now an affordable $6.48.
Strawberry Fields Flowers & Finds is at 423 Strawberry St. Store hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
