‘A rest from the madness’: Your guide to a calm, enjoyable Black Friday along 30A

Published: Tuesday, November 20, 2012 at 02:36 PM.

Ophelia will be serving Mimosas for shoppers to drink, as well as cheese and crackers so shoppers can keep up their strength. Other businesses will likely offer hot chocolates and other treats.

The Shops of Grayton is comprised of Allison Craft Designs, Ophelia Swimwear, The Studio Gallery, Shooz of Grayton, Sweet Bay Prints, nicole paloma, Nest 30A, and Sirens at the Beach, each of which will have special deals for customers Black Friday.

“Each special is localized,” said Von Hoene, whose shop will have “tons of swimsuits that are 75 percent off.”

A constant figure at The Shops, but not a merchant, Michelle Uhlfelder was excited for the holiday offerings by TamTam Stitches, which sells at Sweet Bay Prints.

“Tami Huston does embroidery and makes children's clothes … She makes the most adorable chevron children's dresses and chevron scarves. Embroidery is always really huge during the holidays — everyone wants to personalize bags, shirts for kids and gifts so this is her busy time of the year. Plus, she is one of the only businesses that does this around here,” said Uhlfelder of her friend.

Whether you’re searching for that perfect personalized gift, a beautiful piece of art, or something lovely to wear during the holidays, there will be plenty of steals at The Shops of Grayton.

Von Hoene just hopes it will mirror last year in one aspect.
