October 1st Sidewalk Sale

Everyone is invited to help us celebrate Village Emporium’s 18th birthday! We are going to make it a month long happening and we start with an extra sidewalk sale this Saturday October 1st 10:00am-5:30pm. Plan to enjoy light snacks while you shop inside where there will be markdowns and booths with percentages off of regular priced items. Outside you will find a variety of merchandise at low prices. Take time to look for interesting treasures on the numerous tables stretching across our storefront.

With a $25.00 purchase, register for a $25.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE from our neighbor, HARRIS TEETER. You will be called on Sunday if you are the lucky winner.

Mark your calendar for our LAST SIDEWALK SALE OF THE YEAR on October 15th. Help us make these two sales successful as we make room for more Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas merchandise!

2016 has been a very fast-paced year and we only have these last three months left; therefore, help us make October, November and December good ones for our vendors and for SMALL BUSINESSES in this area. We continue to appreciate your loyal support. Our workers and vendors will miss the sidewalk sales and it is always a time of bitter-sweetness when we put those tables away in October. Let’s come together and really enjoy these two and create many happy memories that will make us long for an email announcing the awaited first sale in the early spring!! See you on the sidewalk!!

Each one of you is important to Village Emporium and has helped us be able to be celebrating 18 years in business!

Thank you,


Sidewalk Sale June 18th

Summer is now here and I’m sure you and your family are very busy, but hopefully you will find time to drop by our June Sidewalk Sale, Saturday, June 18th, 10:00-5:30

Father’s Day is June 19th!

There will be many tables outside loaded with fantastic marked down items and also a wide variety of small furniture, toys and many other items too large to fit on the tables!  After shopping outside, go in to find booths that have great sales for that day only!

Keep in mind that this will be the day before Father’s Day.  Children love shopping for dad and this would be a wonderful time to let them find special treasures to surprise dad or grandpa!

We would also like to wish all the special men in your lives a very Happy Father’s Day!

Thank you to the families of our deceased war veterans.

Memorial Day was originally called Decoration Day and was initiated to honor the soldiers for the Union and Confederate armies who died during the American Civil War.

Celebrations honoring Civil War heroes started the year after the war ended. The establishment of a public holiday was meant to unify the celebration as a national day of remembrance instead of a holiday celebrated separately by the Union and Confederate states. By the late 19th century, the holiday became known as Memorial Day and was expanded to include the deceased veterans of all the wars fought by American forces. In 1971, Memorial Day became a federal holiday.

The original national celebration of Decoration Day took place on 30 May 1868. When Memorial Day became a federal holiday, it was given the floating date of the last Monday in May. Since many companies close for the holiday, Memorial Day weekend is three days long for most people. It is the unofficial beginning of the summer vacation season that lasts until the first Monday in September, which is Labor Day.
