From the bargain-hunter's bag

Posted By on Sun, Sep 12, 2010 at 9:08 AM

Deal, deals, deals! Just for you (and me).

First up, get your butt over to the Leechpit today. Our buddy and Reverb columnist Adam Leech is throwing a big 7th anniversary party from noon to 6 p.m. at his shop at 708 N. Weber St.


Yes, there will be music but the deal of the day has to be the "Rocker" tattoos: Leechpit "neighbors" Pens & Needles Custom Tattoo Co. (featured in our Student Survival Guide here) will be giving $20 Leechpit "Rocker" tattoos free if you spend at least $100 at the shop. And if you're willing to actually go through with the tat, you get 10 percent off at the Leechpit forever. What's a little skin for a lifetime discount?

If you're a vinyl fan (as in records, peeps, not pants), check out Leechpit's Free Record Tuesdays. As Adam says, "You can grab a freebie off the bargain shelf, no purchase necessary."

Next, Envi's Five Dollar No Holler sale. Marci and Garry over at the fun art-clothing-jewelry shop located at 2605 W. Colorado Ave. in Old Colorado City (and 2009 Indy Best Of winner for Green Business) said I could pass this coupon on to all of our readers. Five bucks, my friends. And all you gotta do is print it out and pop on by before Sept. 30.


And while you're in the OCC anyway, you should stop by Eve's at 1312 W. Colorado Ave.


The summer goods in her 75 percent-off back room are going fast — she's getting ready for fall. Mark your calendar now for next weekend, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 18, for a 10th Birthday Soiree and Gypsy Bazaar (I can't believe the shop's been here 10 years!). The festivities, per an e-mail from Eve, will include an "all-new autumn collection, local artisans, upcycled home decor & salvaged jewels," and from 2-6 p.m., light tapas and wine pairings with local wine expert Michaela Hightower.

The anniversaries are happening all over the place. Downtown's Terra Verde, at 208 N. Tejon St., is celebrating the big 18. And shoppers are celebrating the 18 percent store-wide discount.


No coupons necessary. Just visit them between now and Tuesday, Sept. 14.

Shop on.
