  • Care Package for Williamsburg!

    Hi Friends! 

       Williamsburg is all about giving back and we have the perfect way to celebrate the Fourth of July and your freedom! Aromas (our favorite coffee shop) and The Hound's Tale are gathering items to send off to our troops. The Shoe Attic has decided to join in on the fun and offer a 10% discount to anyone who donates an item on the approved list. All donations must be in by July 20th and can be dropped off at either locations, Aromas or Hounds Tale, conveniently on either side of The Shoe Attic. These Care Packages will be sent off to our Service Men, Women and Dogs!! Yup I said it DOGS!!!! Hand written notes, pictures, monetary donations, and approved items (see list below) are welcome!!! 

     So here is the deal, you can bring in your items to The Shoe Attic and we will hand you a certificate honoring 10% off your next purchase! Share all your treats for the troops with your friends on InstaGram and what they can do to help, then tag The Shoe Attic for 15% off.  You can provide one or ten items, we will honor our discount! On July 19th we will be taking all of the items you have dropped off to Aromas to ship off to the troops! 

      Remember these are the people who protect us, who keep us safe at night, who have left their friends and family to ensure we live in a better place. Show them how much you appreciate them! Show them how special and treasured they are! Thank them for everything they do! 

    I have written up the list of approved items. You can pick up a list in store as well! 

    Remember you can bring one or ten items! Anything will help!
