In an effort to raise awareness of what the Albemarle Downtown businesses have to offer residents and visitors to our area, the businesses have been participating in a monthly promotional called “Shop Albemarle Downtown First Saturdays”. As the name indicates, the monthly promotional is usually held the first Saturday of each month.
September is a little different, though . . .in conjunction with the Annual Community-Wide Yard Sale at Christ Episcopal Church, located at 428 Pee Dee Avenue, Albemarle, North Carolina, participating Downtown businesses will be having sidewalk sales and various specials.
Artistic Life Photography, Inc., will be open and participating in this event with a “Help Us Clean Out The Studio” sidewalk sale. We will have tables outside the studio that will have some of our older studio décor and prop items, as well as some of the smaller, framed print products previously on display (we are making room for fresh faces and new products!). And while we’ll have lots of deals for the sidewalk sale, we’ll be having fun on the inside, too! If you are a high school or college student, call or email now to reserve your spot for a mini Facebook Profile picture upgrade. There is no charge for the mini session and you are under no obligation to purchase anything. You will need to come dressed and ready, and your mini session will last approximately five to ten minutes. You are welcome to bring friends – we’ll be glad to get some group images as well as individuals. We’ll also have light snacks for you to enjoy, some limited-time session specials, and even a few give-aways while you visit us at the studio. The images will be placed online for viewing (you will receive information the day of your mini session about how to access the images), and once you let us know which image is your favorite, we will email you a lo-res, watermarked social media image for you to use online. Nope, no strings. No pressure. Nada. Nothing. Seriously. But if you like what you see when you visit us, just remember where we’re located.
While you’re Downtown, visit the other local businesses for sales and specials at each participating location, go to the Farmer’s Market for some fresh goodies, and don’t forget the Annual Community Wide Yard Sale at Christ Episcopal Church. FYI – if you’re interested in reserving a free spot at the Yard Sale (Yes, Free! – you just have to provide your own table), call the church office at 704-982-1428 to reserve your space.
