Thanksgiving Weekend Deals at Vastu

November 25, 2011 · Posted in Great gift ideas, Places to go in DC, Vastu News · Comment 

In addition to the great Herman Miller Holiday Sale (that lasts through December 11th) we have going on, Vastu is offering a couple more deals this weekend only! All three of these items would make great gifts this holiday season.

Hot N’ Cold Glasses (Set of 4), regularly $36 are now $30!

These versatile glasses are good for both cold and hot beverages with a rubber sleeve that serves to insulate as well as prevent glass sweating. 5 great colors to choose from: Blue, Hot Pink, Lime Green, Black and Purple.

Bulb-Incalmo

Bulb-Incalmo Vases and Tube Top Vases are 20% Off!

These one of a kind pieces are designed and handmade by Lynn Read, out of Portland, Oregon. These vases begin as sheet glass supplied by local Oregon and Washington vendors. Rather than the conventional gas furnace, electric furnaces powered by renewable energy heat the glass. The glass is blown into vases of all shapes and sizes and the slight color variation makes even two like pieces unique.

Tube Top

Bulb-Incalmo, regularly $135 is now $108

Tube Top, regularly $95 is now $76

Small Business Saturday

November 25, 2011 · Posted in MidCity News, Places to go in DC · Comment 

Just a reminder that tomorrow is Small Business Saturday! So while you’re out doing your holiday shopping, why not patronize a small/local business at the same time? And if you register your American Express card you can actually receive a one-time $25 statement credit when you spend $25 or more at a participating location (like Vastu!)

Here are some interesting stats from Think Local First to get you motivated!

  • An average consumer will spend $700 on  seasonal merchandise and gifts over the 2011 holiday season.
  • When you spend $100 at an independent business, $68 returns to the local community. Spend that same amount at a national chain and it drops to $43.
  • For every square foot a local firm occupies, the local economy gains $179 vs. $105 for a chain store.
  • Locally-owned businesses reinvest in the local economy at a 60% higher rate than chains and Internet retailers.
