THE SALE REPORT: Passyunk Pops up in Rittenhouse and Valentine’s Day

Our latest batch of reasons to get out there and shop

Pop-Up Passyunk Shopping Event in Rittenhouse
If you haven’t been able to get yourself over to South Philly to see what all the fuss over East Passyunk Ave. is about, you’ll get your chance for a taste of it this weekend, when the shops that make up this ever-growing neighborhood come together for a sort of pop-up neighborhood in Rittenhouse, today through Sunday. Look for JimmyStyle, Urban Jungle, Sweet Jane Vintage, Fringe Salon, Green Aisle Grocery, and lots more. (And bring some cash: Not all stores will be able to take plastic during this event.)

Friday February 12 and Saturday February 13, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Sunday February 14, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Northern Liberties: Romancing The Walk

They’ll be serving champagne and chocolate this weekend at this Queen Village shoe shop — and also offering 15-percent savings on any shoe purchase, including already-on-sale items (which could mean discounts of up to 75 percent!).
