Join us June 14 thru June 29, 2013 for an unusual shopping/food and fun adventure featuring 36 off-the-beaten path businesses, hand-picked for their uniqueness. Set up like a home or garden tour, you’ll travel place to place, in your own vehicle, enjoying all the special free things (refreshments, games, gifts, demos, workshop tours, make & take projects, etc) the businesses have planned for you. Your ticket is valid the entire time—do what you can in a day or take 16 days—it’s up to you. Collect tickets to play the shop & win game and enter to win over $1000 in prizes. Enter to win a $200 shopping spree. Plus, each place has given you a valuable coupon. Although we won’t tell you the names of the businesses ahead of time (that’s part of the fun secret!), we will tell you the types of places you’ll visit— unusual home, garden & gift stores in log cabins, barns, historic buildings and a one-room schoolhouse, local favorite restaurants in historic buildings & tucked away cafes, farms where you can interact with the animals, amazing nurseries, an artist’s studio, a dairy farm with an on-site creamery, specialty food shops & farmer’s markets that offer plentiful samples, vintage shops, antique stores, a potter’s studio, a quilting and a stitching store, clothing, jewelry, a few specialty shops & more! There really is something for everyone! The stores are located throughout Berks County but if you follow our path you will never travel more than 14 miles between places and most are closer together. What a fun way to find the best kept secrets of Berks County! Tickets are $7 ea--$1 per ticket is donated to The Children’s Home of Reading. The first 2000 people to purchase tickets will also receive a free goody bag containing promotional items or small treats from the businesses—so reserve NOW. Every ticket contains a tour guide that lists the name, address and description of each business, a map to get you around, the calendar of extra events and coupons from each business.
