Hometown Holidays: She Sells Seashells
As Newporters have a tendency to share a love of the sea, I’m featuring this triple-milled, scalloped-shell bath soap by Crabtree & Evelyn from Harbor Bath & Body at Thames Street Landing in Bristol (3 bars, 3.5oz each, $17.95) for today’s Hometown Holidays. Enriched with an ultra-moisturizing blend of shea butter and golden jojoba oil, the creamy lil’ luxury soap is a great stocking stuffer, or lovely gift when paired with the beautifully packaged jojoba bath and massage oil (6.8fl.oz, $20.95). Both are also available at www.harborbathandbody.com, if you’re out of the area or can’t imagine actually crossing the bridge…
DON’T FORGET: Tomorrow is the big Hometown Holidays Drawing at 4 p.m. outside Active Sole on Bowen’s Wharf (where you should make a point to stop in). Bring your shopping, restaurant or attraction receipts totaling $100 or more from any small, local business to the Newport Visitor’s Center on America’s Cup Avenue, or Paper, Packaging & Panache on Hope Street in Bristol, receive your complementary gift, and qualify for the $1000 American Express gift card giveaway (need not be present to win).
