Have you ever wondered where you can buy fresh mistletoe in Philly? No? Well, either way, you can find it Christmas Village, the annual holiday bazaar that overtakes Love Park during the holiday season.
Midtown Village art store Absolute Abstract, one of this year's bazaar vendors, is supplying fresh mistletoe to the masses, but what really makes their vendor booth stand out is a mistletoe-bedecked kissing wall. Strategically positioned near the Love statue, the kissing wall, open now and remaining on-site through December 31, provides an excellent photo op for a little seasonal PDA.
Lest you be unfamiliar with the market price of mistletoe these days, Absolute Abstract is selling it for $5 a bag, $20 for five bags. And because it's the season of giving, a portion of Absolute Abstract's holiday sales will benefit the National Kidney Foundation.
