This week marks the very first birthday of Sweet Salvage and to celebrate, owners Kim Rawlins and Katie Hobbs are going all out with a sale they call Let Them Eat Cake. This four-day event, which starts tomorrow (Thursday) and ends Sunday, is a hybrid hootenanny of birthday celebration and Francophile treasures, selling everything from Parisian décor, antique kitchen appliances, and enough cake platters to make Marie Antoinette's head spin (again).
To top it all off, there's going to be actual cake. Well, forms of cake- cake pops, cupcakes, and even some rogue cookies here and there, from Sweetables, Cakepops101, and Cookies in Bloom. Sweet Salvage will be dishing out these desserts, some of them free, throughout the store and replenishing them over the weekend.
"You only have a first birthday once," says Kim Rawlins. "Plus it's in appreciation of their [the customers] loyalty and friendship, and for coming in so often."
And really is there any better way to fuel early-bird shoppers then sugary, frosted finger foods at 10am? We didn't think so.
