#shopsmall Covington Itinerary
Hey! We’ve missed you!
It’s been a while (like 4 months yikes) since we’ve blogged but we are starting to get back into the swing of things as we adjust to working alongside our new team member, baby Basil. We’ve also been super busy prepping for the holidays! We’ve been adding lots and lots of new products with you and everyone on your gift list this year in mind!
If you’re thinking about stocking up on Handzy goodies for your gifts this year then Small Business Saturday is the perfect opportunity to stop by! It’s certain to be a good time!
If you’re not yet convinced, we put together a fun itinerary for your day so keep reading!
11a–12p Slow Flow at Rooted Yoga
Kick off your day with a little movement and relaxation. You deserve it after the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving family parties and Black Friday! This class instructed by Rooted Yoga’s owner, Jessica Starr, will challenge and energize you.
12–1p Brunch at Hotel Covington
After yoga you’ll need food and coffee before you can even think about shopping. Coppin’s at Hotel Covington will provide you with delicious brunch in an awe inspiring atmosphere. Make a reservation now as I’m sure they will be busy this holiday season!
1–2p Pick Up a #shopsmall Map at Braxton Brewery
Our friends at Renaissance Covington put together a map to help you browse local vendors PLUS the first 150 people to stop by will receive a FREE shop small tote bag! Let’s be honest, you’ll probably want to sip on a beer while you’re at Braxton too. Our favorites are the Haven Hefeweizen and the Storm Golden Cream Ale!
2–3p Shop at Handzy!
Walk through the arcade (it’s a tunnel across the street from Braxton that will lead you to our street), turn right and come through our bright yellow door! If your coffee buzz is fading from brunch or you need a pick-me-up after your brew we’ll have free coffee from our best buds at Left Bank Coffeehouse. We’ll also have multiple giveaways for you to enter, special discounts, brand new products, AND extended hours from 10a–6p!! We can’t wait to see you!
3–4p Shop at Grainwell Market
Luckily you don’t have to wander far to find another shop just as cute as Handzy! Go visit our friends and fellow lady bosses right down the street at Grainwell. There you’ll find their handmade products alongside a wonderfully curated collection of other gifty products.
4–6p Explore Other Shops in Covington
Go out and explore! So far this itinerary has kept you in basically a one block radius but there is more to see in Covington! Grab your map and plot out a plan! It will feel good to stretch your legs and get some fresh air.
6–7p Dine at a New Restaurant
There are new places to dine in Covington popping up what seems like weekly. There are so many places that we couldn’t even choose one to recommend. Check out the newest spot Rich’s Proper Food & Drink or hit up a Covington staple like Kung Food Chu’s AmerAsia. Grab a some pizza at Alto Pizza Kitchen + Bar if you’re feeling casual. If your earlier explorations lead you to Mainstrasse, stop by Frida 602 for tacos and margaritas or Commonwealth Bistro for some seriously good and beautifully plated eats.
