Hunt for bargains at Ladies Night Out

November 10, 2010 - Clarkston Elementary provides a night of fun, food and shopping in time for holiday shopping.

The second annual Ladies Night Out event is set for Nov. 18, 6-8 p.m., with over 40 vendors from the Clarkston area.

"We have a little bit of everything," said Jennifer Herrman, Clarkston Elementary PTO President. "It's inexpensive. I am a huge supporter of community businesses and this is another way to get people buying local. It's Clarkston busineses and homemade products."

The event was created as a fundraiser for the school and November seemed like the perfect time - for holiday shopping and in time for Hunter's Widow's Week.

It has grown from it's initial idea to a fun event of shopping and pampering.

"It has become more of a community event," said Herrman. "It became much better than we thought."

The event includes over 40 vendors - including the hottest trends in clothing, jewelry and home decor. Not sure what to get for the holidays Front Door Designs, Great Turtle Toys, Encore Pilates KH Home and Good Dog Co. are just a few of the vendors providing ideas to find the perfect presents for friends, family and even the family pet.

"We have returning vendors, plus we have a lot of new vendors," said Herrman. "It's exciting."

Union Wood Shop is providing food and three different bakeries are bringing desserts. Lisa's Confection Connection, in downtown Clarkston, will have cookies and cake samples.

The entry fee is $2 and it includes one raffle ticket. More tickets are available for purchase.

"All the vendors have donated one item for the raffle," said Herrman, adding they had over 20 raffles last year and will have more this year.

During the event, the PTO will also be presaling their cookbooks, "Alphabet Soup: Fabulous Family Favorites from Clarkston Elementary."

The cookbook includes 350 recipes from staff members and families and features artwork created by the students.
