We'll start off our experience with something sweet for your tastebuds at a beloved Philly donut shop. Samples will be provided for guests to nosh on while we get to know one another and chat about what secondhand finds tickle their fancy. We will then be off and away to various secondhand establishments across the Queen Village neighborhood of Philadelphia. Guests are free to shop at their own pace but we'll be close by to jump in if they're in need of any styling advice along the way or assistance in the hunt for the perfect treasure they are looking for. During our secondhand excursion, we be taking a detour down an art-filled alley that's quintessentially Philly and an Instagrammer's dream spot for the perfect picture to document this experience. We end our journey with recommendations to some of our favorite spots close by to enjoy pretty cocktails and unique food options for guests to indulge in and keep the party going. Guests will also be provided with a colorful guide to additional secondhand shops and Marisa and Aimee's go to places for dining and drinks throughout the city and surrounding suburbs.

Detailed insider's guide to more secondhand shops across the city and favorite food & drink spots.
We will meet at a donut shop on Philly's famous South Street. After that, we will be walking to 3 of our favorite secondhand shops in the Queen Village neighborhood. The first is a small vintage collective full of curated pieces and artisan goods. The second is a large thrift store with a lower price point and vast selection. The last is a retro lover's dream full of unique vintage vignettes and funky housewares at a mid price point.
Spending money for shopping and money for additional food/drinks.
Public transportation to the Queen Village area is recommended. Street parking is available and is metered in certain areas. We will be walking approximately 3 blocks, rain or shine, so come prepared
