I’ve never won a “spree” before, but I hope to this weekend. That’s right, a $500 local shopping spree is UP FOR GRABS at one of the hottest events happening in Barrington on Saturday, March 10. Oh, and Elmo’s going to be there, too. Does it get more exciting than that? Out of the way, neighbors! I’m coming to hang with Elmo and win my spree at the Barrington Community Expo!!!
The Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Barrington Community Expo from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. TOMORROW, March 10th, at the Langendorf Center at the Barrington Park District. There will be great activities for kids going on so you can focus on checking out dozens of the Barrington area’s most successful businesses, win prizes and get free health screenings to assess your blood pressure, posture, muscle tone and stress levels. There’s nothing a $500 shopping spree can’t cure!…Continue Reading
The scent of spring was in the air this week and, for the first time in months, the weather’s starting to feel a little more welcoming. Daylight savings is this Sunday, the sun is shining a little bit brighter and the temperature is starting to rise. It occurred to me this week that now’s the time to start getting my kids’ warm weather wardrobe together. At 3 years, 2 years and 7-months-old, my kids need new sizes every season so there’s no way I’m missing the Growing Cents of Style consignment sale that’s going on this weekend, March 10th and 11th, in Barrington!
A Barrington mom named Jenny Welsh has been organizing two seasonal Growing Cents of Style consignment sales a year since the fall of 2006 and the event grows by leaps and bounds each year. “The event has grown from 43 consignors at our first sale to over 300 at our upcoming sale. I have consignors from all over the Chicago area and Wisconsin. We will have over 20,000 items for sale this weekend and will see over 1,000 shoppers this sale…”…Continue Reading
There’s something about baby photos that just makes me feel happy. That’s why I was so excited to see the photos submitted in our 365 Barrington “Cute Kid and Baby Photo Contest” which we posted last week on Wednesday. We received a bunch of submissions and we have two winners. One is a little boy, the other a little girl and both live right here in Barrington. The first is a picture of a three-year-old named Adam. We call this picture “Future Heartbreaker”.
Adam’s mom, Margaret, says he’s “A strong-headed, stubborn little boy who is full of energy and can never sit still for more than 5 minutes. But he always melts my heart with the unprompted kisses, snuggles and the “I love you, mom’s.” Thanks for sharing this photo of your sweet and handsome son, Margaret. As one of our winners, you will receive a $50 gift certificate to be used anywhere in the Ice House Mall. The second winner is an adorable baby girl named Carina.…
