Shop Brooklyn/Snowflake Festival: Promotions and Discounts

We've been reflecting on the importance of communities that sustain one another -  specifically, the ever-expanding community of supporters of Asha Veza and the communities in India and Bosnia supported by you.  This year, as many local organisations and enterprises experience extended fallout from an economy that has not fully recovered,  we've been taken aback by how readily and generously local businesses supported our fundraising initiative to benefit GEMS.

In appreciation of the community comprising our fellow Park Slope small business owners and the clientele whose patronage sustains us, we've initiated a cross-promotion with some of  our friends and neighbours on 5th Avenue in Park Slope.  

Customers presenting receipts from participating business dated the 9th or 16th December 2010 will receive 10% discounts off the meal, purchase or service provided by the second participating business later in the day.  Please note that discounts will be honoured for receipts dated 12/9 on 12/9 and for those dated 12/16 on 12/16. 

Participating businesses include: Alchemy Restaurant and Tavern Asha Veza, BierkraftCanaille BistroElement Beauty Lounge (Park Slope location),Gorilla CoffeeLulu's Then & NowMiriam RestaurantSIP Tabeel and The V Spot

To thank you for ‘shopping local’ this season (when options for doing otherwise are abundant), we're participating in the 5th Avenue Snowflake Special/Shop Brooklyn Initiative and offering a special 15% discount on our ever-popular and never-otherwise discounted gossamer light 100% cashmere shawls through December 31st. 

Thank you for your support of local businesses.
