NORTHERN LIBERTIES—The annual NoLibs Holiday Spree returns this weekend, bringing with it shopping, discounts, sweet treats, and general holiday merriment. Here's how it works: make a purchase at one boutique, get 10% off, get a sticker; make a purchase at a second store, get 15% off, get a second sticker; make a third purchase at a third store, get 20% off, get your third sticker. Once you've collected three stickers, you'll snag the spree's ultimate earning: 25% off at any additional participating store during the event. Participating Northern Liberties boutiques include Arcadia, Art Star, Duke & Winston, Bloom, Ritual Ritual, Once Worn, Jinxed, and more. The spree will be held Saturday, December 7, 11am to 8pm; Sunday, December 8, 11am to 6pm. [RackedWire]
