Click Here for more info on the exhibit.

With that in mind, our monthly drawing winners for the months of October and November will receive two free admission tickets to the Maryland Historical Society to see the Hometown Girl Exhibit!
...and check out the rest of the museum while you are there, it's a wonderful gem in Baltimore City! And it's easy to get to with free on-site parking as well :)

The winner for October is Mary Denney!

How do you get into our popular Monthly Drawing you ask?
Just bring in your SWD Clear Tote and each time you make a purchase and use it as your shopping bag, you not only help the environment, you also get your name in our monthly drawing :)
If you don't already have one of our Spring Water Designs Clear Stadium Totes, you can purchase one any time (...we also use them for our periodic Tote bag sales ~ so watch for those too!)

Enjoy the day!
