We didn't quite mean to go silent for a month, but if you've been following along on socials, you know we went back into serious construction mode to prep for December and beyond (brick walls looking more like brick every day!). Incidentally, if you're curious to see the progress, Instagram -- and to a lesser degree Facebook -- are a good place to check in on that, especially in Stories. We're just about ready to reopen!
We've got two main events for you in December: our annual Goldmine pop-up market & vintage-flavored holiday party (same day), and of course New Year's Eve. In addition, if you're a House of Scorpio member, there is also a HoS holiday party & pre-NYE celebration (if you don't know: HoS is the sex-positive LGBTQ+ community offshoot from G&S).
Details on the events are below. Heads up that we haven't updated the website yet, so the best source of info is this email & the Facebook event links.

Our very first open house event in the brand new G&S Loft! Interested in checking out the Loft for an event in the future? This is the perfect day to come by.
First: Miss Scorpio teams up with fellow dress-up addicts and craft-makers for some closet-cleaning and handmade gift shopping. Think art, one-of-a-kind wearables, feathers and fascinators, unique jewelry, and lots of sparkles. The bar will be open for cocktails and lounging throughout.
Then, it's the annual G&S holiday party: come chill in our sexy new home and enjoy seasonal craft cocktails and small nibbles in a unique eclectic setting. Roaring fireplace projections, holiday classics retro lounge vibes soundtrack, and a sweet dance party to close out the night.
