Black Friday may signal the start of the holiday season at the Tanger Outlets on Coastal Highway, but December 1st is the kickoff in Lewes!
begins on Second Street at 6 pm and runs until 9 pm with the street blocked off for the party. Shop ’til you drop, meet up with old friends, dance to the music, and enjoy light refreshments provided by our local businesses.
If you’ve never visited the in-town shops, this would be a great time to start. From shops like Twila Farrell and Aquamarine for stylish women’s clothing and accessories to Shorebreak for some casual men’s clothing, then stop in at Kids’ Ketch for great toys and gifts for the kids. Blooming Boutique is the perfect place to find affordable and unique gifts for everyone on your list.
Hungry? Touch of Italy at the corner of 2nd and Savannah brings a little bit of The Bronx to Lewes and the tastings are bound to lead to more mozzarella and olives. The choice of restaurants extends from one end of Second Street to the other – Striper Bites to Agave, the Cake Bar or Jerry’s Seafood and The Buttery. For a great cup of coffee and wonderful pastry, stop in to The Lewes Bake Shop. Don’t forget to explore the side streets and First Street. There’s a lot of wonderful shops, restaurants and galleries packed into this delightful small town in Coastal Delaware.
