Thanks to Laurie for the heads up!

I stopped by this morning and saw maybe 10-15 boxes of kids clothes, and 20 or so boxes for men. They had apparently just received a shoe shipment as well and there were a LOT of women’s shoes.

Several commenters have also let me know that there are no friends and family coupons for this sale.

Carytown First returns tomorrow night, and shops and restaurants will be staying open late and offering specials.

The event I am particularly excited about is at Clover kids consignment:


Come to Clover Thursday, March 3 from 5- 8 pm or Friday, March 4 from 10 am – 6 pm and shop the new spring line from Shrimp & Grits! Have you seen the line before? It is sweet, southern, smocked, and the prices are great! For boys and girls through size 7. Check ’em out at

And two more reasons to come…
During both days of the show, we’ll double the value of any gift certificate purchases to Clover up to $100. So for instance, you can pay $20 and get a gift certificate for $40, or you can pay $100 and get a gift certificate for $200!


If you place an in-store order with S&G on Thursday or Friday, you’ll receive a coupon good for 30% off any new item at Clover throughout the month of March!

I don’t know anything about Shrimp and Grits except that the name is cute, but gift certificates for half-price rocks!

Other specials include:

    Roan – 80% off ALL shoes and boots

    bonvenu – Mention Carytown First and get 10% off your food bill!

    Amici is running a Picasso Special: 3 course meal for only $29.95 (ask server for details)

    Every first Thursday, buy a Double T’s size sandwich for their regular price, endless bowls of chili and brunswick and free homemade ice cream for dessert. (?)

    Mention “Carytown First” when you make any purchase over $10 at Play N Trade and get a free $5 gift card good toward next purchase. See store for details!
