Shop 'til You Drop, Recession-Style

It's all about the goodie bag

For some of us shopaholics, the recession is hitting us harder than most. It's difficult to justify those splurges on designer bags, shoes and beauty products nowadays. But that doesn't make us yearn for them any less.

Lucky for us, tickets are on sale now for Shecky’s Girls Night Out at the Crystal Tea Room so grab your gal pals, ladies, and get ready to get your shop on!

"Shecky's Girls Night Out creates the ultimate girlfriend entertainment by giving women the opportunity to shop sample and score!" said Shecky's President Claudia Chan. 

On Wednesday and Thursday, July 22 and 23 from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., browse through hundreds of products by independent, up-and-coming designers and boutiques like beauty items from Jing Ai and Jaguar Luxury Remi and food from Cupcake Gourmet -- all at 75 percent off -- and leave with a goodie bag filled with free swag (worth up to $100) from vendors like The Body Shop and Hollywood Records.

"Philadelphia women have always loved a Girls Night Out with Shecky's and we are excited to provide them with amazing goodie bags that are filled to the brim! Lucky ladies will walk away with great new products including Colgate Wisp, Yes to Carrots Lip Butter and Aquafresh White Trays Revive and much much more," according to Chan.

Tickets are $25 ($35 at the door), which gets you into the event, copious cocktails, beauty treatments and the goodie bag. Even if you don’t buy anything, it's a great way to succumb to your desire to shop and keep plenty of your paycheck in the bank.

Don't worry ladies, if you miss this week's event, Shecky's Girls Night will return to Philly from September 29 until October 1.
