Thanks for telling folks about the downtown shops open last night--seven shops were open late! We had a lot of people enjoy the evening and I know I heard at least a couple people say they didn't know we had shops down here. (yeah!) We had some nice sales and good visits at Nana's Children's Boutique. Thanks for spreading the word--
