No Fooling Around on Hawick Street
Even though it was April Fool’s Day, there was “No Fooling Around” in the shops and stores on Hawick Street Friday evening, April 1. The event gave shoppers an opportunity to get a taste of all that the popular area has to offer.
After the Vine offered a free wine tasting event that drew a large crowd of wine lovers throughout the evening. Visitors sipped wine or a craft beer with friends and listened to acoustical music from “Good Vibrations” musician Kevin Burns.
“This is just wonderful,” Cynthia Seine said. She and her husband Jay, from Texas, were visiting relatives and dropped by for a glass of wine. “After the Vine is a hidden gem.”
Next door, Erica Smith and her team at Aveda Sanctuary Spa opened their doors to a little pampering. Visitors (mostly ladies) were offered a taste of wine, hair curling, and a $1 per minute chair massage by massage therapist Branden Springborn.
The day spa offers a long list of services, including hair and skin care, facials, massage, waxing, make-up and pedicures.
A block west on Hawick, Whitney Frost, owner of Frosted Farmhouse, greeted shoppers to her unique store filled with farmhouse style décor and gifts.
Sugar Britches, an old-fashioned candy store on Main Street, tempted shoppers at After the Vine with gourmet chocolate treats. Next door at The Mix, visitors could purchase pastries, ice cream treats and specialty coffees.
Visitors walked up a few blocks to Main Street where charcuterie cups were available for purchase at Fibs Restaurant.
Rockton shop owners hope to make “No Fooling Around” a yearly April 1st event in Rockton.
