Luxury Garage Sale, the Old Town boutique we can't enough of, has a birthday coming up. On November 13, the high-end consignment service will celebrate one year in biz, and the launch of its e-commerce division, with an in-store bash. And while champagne and cupcakes are lovely—and there will plenty of both, plus discounts, at the evening soiree—we're a little more excited about what'll be going on that day. In a nutshell, it will be a citywide game with a very stylish spin.
Called the Chanel in the City Scavenger Hunt, the contest will take participants to several of the Luxury Garage Sale ladies' favorite spots. Players can pick up a map at the Old Town shop, then head out to search for clues that will lead to the prize: a Chanel bag (!) that will be hidden somewhere in the city. There will also be clues posted throughout the day on LGS's Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.
Why are we telling you this two weeks early? Simple: we couldn't wait. The map will be released next week, so check back for more details. And, may the best Coco fan win (virtual handshakes all around.)
