Old Town Boutique District Invites You to their Second Annual Scavenger

Scavenger Hunt

The Old Town Boutique District, a cooperative association of 27 Alexandria boutique owners, is celebrating its first anniversary by giving away more than $5,000 in gift cards and gifts from participating merchants during its Second Annual Scavenger Hunt Sept. 18-20.

Subscribers to Boutique Buzz, the Boutique District's e-mail newsletter, will receive Scavenger Hunt passports in their e-mail inbox. Passports can also be downloaded from the Boutique District's web site, www.oldtownboutiquedistrict.com/scavengerhunt.

When you visit participating stores, shoppers will show their passports to the merchants to receive free gifts they can use to build their own gift bags. Each store will offer free items that scavenger hunters can pick up and add to their collections. They can collect as many or as few items as they want.

No purchase is necessary to receive the free gifts, but shoppers must have their passport.

The first place prize winner will receive $2,700 in gift cards -- $100 from each participating merchant. Twenty-seven second place winners will each receive a $100 gift card from a participating merchant drawn at random.

To qualify for the drawings, shoppers must collect stamps from each of the 27 merchants between Friday, September 18, and Sunday, September 20. No purchase is necessary to receive a passport stamp.
