Ready for a Soggy Weekend in Huntington Beach?

Of course the biggie this weekend, rain or shine, is the Holiday Boutique at Old World Festival Hall, 7561 Center Ave, 11am-4pm. This is a benefit for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life and all the vendors present will be donating a portion of their profits of the day to the Relay here in Huntington Beach (which will be next May 21/22) to help with the fight against cancer. Come on out, don't be afraid of a little wetness and show some support, do some shopping, get some of your gift shopping out of the way.

Oh, by the way, while you are out there spending, a couple of the places you need to make sure to hit up are:
Absolutely Fabulous (6026 Warner Ave at Springdale, south of Warner, 714.842.1608). By November 6th, their store will be back to full operating status (they have been moving in the fall and holiday stuff!). They have some great holiday gifts and decorations going in, stuff you'll definitely want to check out. Also, you don't want to miss their fabulous window scenes!! I check them out every time I drive by. They are also offering a FREE GIFT for all purchases over $25, while supplies last, and make sure to check out their discount on Surf City Savings. A fun thing they also have going on: an UGLY SWEATER CONTEST running from Friday, December 3rd until Friday, December 10th. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Absolutely Fabulous! Certainly worth a visit, wouldn't you say?

For some more holiday shopping/spending, mark your calendar for Nov 21. 11am-4pm will be a holiday boutique at Old World Festival Hall, 7561 Center ave. 50+ vendors will be displaying their wares, including jewelry, clothing, baby items, health care products, holiday items and much more. And what makes this even better is the vendors are going to be donating a portion of their profit of the day to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. How cool is that? do your holiday shopping knowing you are giving back to charity at the same time.
