ROCKPORT — Check all the boxes that apply:
▢ 1. Are you female?
▢ 2. Do you feel like you’re the only one who knows how to buy presents, clean a house, cook for a large family and make everything festive during the month of December?
Skin Klinic & Day Spa feels for ya, honey. This Sunday, Dec. 15, they are hosting an open house at Union Hall in Rockport for every woman who wants to come and enjoy a holiday party (not just their clients).
“This is the first party we’ve ever done for the public,” said Sue Kelly, owner of Skin Klinic & Day Spa. “Last year we were so packed at our office. This year, we wanted to invite more women, just a way to say thank-you. So that’s why we’re hosting it at Union Hall. “
The celebration will include about 12 female vendors from the area, including: Accents! Jewelry, Kathleen’s Designs, Margaret Rizzio, PatzBag, Serendipity Fine Consignment and Shelby Robben Millenary. “They will all have wares that we think women would want,” said Kelly.
The party will offer champagne and Christmas cookies and music. Other complimentary party favors include having your makeup done, a chair massage and even a Botox demonstration.
“We’re going to give away a free Botox drawing and we’ll have other drawings and prizes throughout the night, like facials and massages,” said Kelly. “I’m not certain, but I think the other vendors will also be raffling off prizes.”
Asked why she chose to make this a public party, she said, “Women are responsible for the majority of the shopping, the buying of gifts, the planning, the cooking and cleaning. And it’s just a nice way for us to kick back and relax and enjoy our friends, our neighbors’ company and vendors we all like, all in one place. We’ll just have a lot of nice options there for everybody.”
The party goes from 4 to 7 p.m. and will be held on the second floor of Union Hall in Rockport (elevator available).
