Introducing: The Nook

Room 363 had an AMAZING Thanksgiving weekend!  We weren't sure what to expect, as this was our first Black Friday and Small Business Saturday in Naperville, but the turnout and support from our customers was incredible. Thank you to everyone who shopped and to those who are spreading the word about what we have to offer.

Naperville's Hometown Holidays 2012 continues this weekend with the Little Friends Parade of Lights on Saturday, December 1 at 4:30pm.  In coordination with this event, Room 363 is hosting a vintage and handmade cooperative, {theNOOK}. {theNOOK} is an opportunity for local creatives and downtown Naperville retail owners to market vintage finds, unique holiday gift ideas and holiday decorations.

Our **GRAND OPENING** is Friday, November 30, from 5-9pm.  Stop in to warm up with hot chocolate, generously provided by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and fill your bags with goodies from our complimentary wine and sweets bar.

{theNOOK} is open for 3 DAYS ONLY, November 30 through December 2, in the future home of Alicia's Photography at 32 W. Chicago Avenue, Naperville.  If you planned on shopping at Room 363 this weekend, make sure you visit us in both locations.

We spent the first part of this week preparing the space for setup, sweeping, mopping and hanging beautiful vintage chandeliers to give the space a homey feel. Vendors began setting up their booths today and watching the transformation has been exciting.  

Here's a few sneak-peek pictures:

This Saturday, December 1 from 1-4pm, there will be a *FREE* Holly Trolley shuttling customers throughout the downtown area.  One of the pick-up/drop-off locations, at Main and Chicago Streets, is right next to {theNOOK}.  The trolley will be a fun way to shop and explore your way through town.

Thank you again for your support and we hope to see you this weekend at both Room 363 and {theNOOK}.
