Put Your Money Where Your Heart Is…
What do, a soap maker, a greenhouse, an art gallery and a consignment boutique have in common? They are 4 of the 21 tour stops on the Mason/Dixon Best Kept Secrets Tour.
The Mason/Dixon area is full of hidden gems but because of our hectic lifestyles, many of us have not had the chance to explore our own backyard. It is time for a stay-cation and the Best Kept Secrets Tour is just the event to help you find all the tucked away treasures the area has to offer.
Do you know where the adorable candy shop is located? How about the wonderful gift shop tucked in a surprising place? Or the amazing antiques & collectibles shop housed in the 1940’s church? All of these spots and more can be visited during the tour.
The Mason/Dixon Best Kept Secrets tour runs August 15 thru August 24 and features shops in & around: Newark, Elkton, Rising Sun, Oxford, and Quarryville. 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 10 days—it’s up to you.
Plus, every business gives you a valuable coupon. Tickets are $10 each ($1 per ticket is donated to Solanco Neighborhood Ministries) and are on sale now at Aunt Margaret’s Antique Mall. We’re NUMBER ONE on the tour!!
So, not only will you enjoy all the surprises throughout the county, you will also be helping a local charity and supporting your local economy. What’s not to love?!?
