Summer is Here!

Savage Mill’s retailers are gearing up for Memorial Day with fresh offerings, summer favorites, and specials for the whole family.

Do you hear screaming when you arrive at our Big Lot? It’s all the good excitement for kids and adults at Terrapin Adventures, including the high ropes challenge course, zip line, climbing tower, and giant swing! With Monday being a school holiday, they’re offering their School’s Out Camp for ages 5-12. After Memorial Day, they’re open to the general public Tuesday to Sunday, including Parent’s Night Out the third Saturday of every month. Their Monday-Friday summer camp offerings are sure to keep youngsters busy.

ArtCraft is offering 10% off David Marsh furniture on Memorial Day. Marsh constructs his furniture from Ponderosa Pine, a harder pine that holds up to the wear and tear of daily life. The simple lines of the furniture are set off by unusual color combinations. Semi-transparent paint allows the grain and texture of the wood to come through. Also check out new works including resin art pieces by Maria Dennis, a Baltimore-based artist and radio host, and painted clay sculptures by Matt Buckley of Edge Sculpture.
